HYDERABAD: A group of mechanical engineering students from a city-based  college have devised an innovative ‘3D printer’ by using an advanced additive manufacturing technology which is still in its primordial stages in India. Designed by a group of final year B.Tech students from Vasavi College of Engineering, this 3D printer can print any complex object in three dimensional (3D) view. 

The students, Prem Shilpi, Srivatsava, Praneet, Adharsh, Sukesh and Mahender devised this machine as part of their final year project.

Apart from functioning as a multi-purpose project for academic research, this project can also be used to automize the manufacturing industry, the team said.

Currently, no institute in India except the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Hyderabad has initiated study on additive manufacturing technology. This technology can be practically used in several sectors such as bio-printing of medical implants, printing various tools for astronauts, designing customised jewellery and footwear.

It will help the manufacturer to produce any product with accurate measurement. The manufacturer can avoid wastage of raw material by using limited resources, said, the faculty members who guided the students.
