How Web Designers Everywhere are Changing the Face of 3D Printing
3D printing is a feat of modern science that has expanded its reaches to fields like medicine, engineering, car manufacturing and even space travel.
An important aspect of what makes 3D printing so successful is web design.
This is a huge part of what turned 3D printing from a fringe engineering experiment to a household name.
The user-friendly platforms found on household and office 3D printers have taken 3D printers out of the lab and into the home.
These platforms are the work of web designers.
After computer scientists write the complex 3D printing codes, web designers are tasked with creating user-friendly interfaces that wrap miles of code up into a neat, simplistic bow.
These wonderful platforms have since found their way to 3D printers used by doctors and nurses in hospitals, all the way down to more affordable personal models.
Web design is an important part of marketing any product, no matter how high tech.
A friendly user interface is important to help customers quickly research products and find the one that best suits them.
Successful 3D printing companies rely on their website to reach their customers, and to educate people about the endless possibilities available through 3D printing.
Many web designers have made their careers around designing interfaces for 3D printing companies.
Opportunities for web designers in the 3D printing field does not stop at just designing 3D printing websites.
Web designers can also find work designing interfaces for 3D printing software.
If you’ve ever used a personal 3D printer, you know that the interface turns the complex process of stereolithography into something an everyday person can use to create a figurine of a cat within minutes.
Without the bright minds of web designers beautiful interfaces, 3D printing would never had such a smooth journey into the mainstream technology realm.
Where Web Design Goes from Here
3D printing may well be the start of a new industrial revolution, and the start of a transformation for web designers.
In the future, customers of websites you’ve designed might be able to buy a product off that website and print it out at home immediately.
This revelation would change everything about the world of web design.
Not only would web designers be tasked with designing an interface to look good online, but possibly one that would work in the real world.
The ease of 3D printing means that customers are potentially able to customise any product they choose.
This means designing user-friendly interfaces that allow customers to easily change any product to suit their needs.
Web designs have been an integral part of taking 3D printing into the mainstream and therefore changing the face of the technology field.
In the future, web designers everywhere will be a part of taking 3D printing to untold new frontiers.
