As a new technology of material application, 3D printing makes three-dimensional objects by adding materials layer by layer. It integrates information, materials, biology and control technology, and changes the production mode of manufacturing industry and the life style of human beings.

Beginning in 2017, 3D printing technology has gradually matured and commercialized, gradually coming out of laboratories and factories, into schools and families. From clothes and shoes printed in 3D to biscuits and cakes printed in 3D, from personal furniture printed in 3D to bicycles printed in 3D. More and more people are falling in love with this new thing. 3D printing surprises every member of the society, from the shape of the printed object to the internal composition of the printed object, and ultimately to the advanced function and behavior of the printed object.

According to statistics, 1/3 of the toys imported from the United States and 2/3 of the toys imported from the European Union are Chinese products. More than 2/3 of the products in the global market (except for the mainland of China) come from China, which is a big toy manufacturer.

At present, many domestic toy manufacturers still use the traditional production method, the process is roughly as follows: conception manual drawing plane computer software drawing three-dimensional drawing trial-produced toy parts assembly verification rework re-verification, after repeated several times, the design is finally completed, and then the opening and trial. Production and so on a set of tedious process. Practice has proved that such a design process will result in a great waste of manpower and material resources.

Digitalization is the background of today’s manufacturing industry. Toy design has also developed towards digitalization and intellectualization. Traditional design and manufacturing methods are difficult to meet the ever-changing and diverse market needs. 3D printing technology makes toy design simple and interesting, and makes toy manufacturing efficient and high quality.

The application of 3D printing technology in toy industry is mainly in the following aspects:

(1) Shortening product development cycle: Without mechanical processing or any die, 3D printing can directly generate any shape of parts from computer graphics data, thus greatly shortening the product development cycle, improving productivity and reducing production costs, which is extremely beneficial for enterprises to enhance competitiveness.

(2) Personalized customization of toys is easier: because 3D printing, customization of toys or highly personalized toys are already very easy to achieve.

(3) Development of new toy products: 3D printing can realize some very complex structures and machinery, develop toy forms that can not be completed by traditional manufacturing methods, and bring new vitality and profit growth point to the toy industry.

(4) New toy sales model becomes possible: with the help of 3D printing technology, toy manufacturers can even provide customers with 3D drawings instead of selling physical objects, so that customers can print out their interested toys at home. Customers can not only experience the fun of making their own toys, but also reduce the purchase cost. Due to the reduction of logistics transportation and warehousing, it is also more friendly to the environment, reducing carbon emissions, which is the future trend of development.

Digital technology has a variety of forming process of 3D printers, can effectively help toy production. Welcome the majority of toy manufacturers or toy enthusiasts to consult and cooperate!
