Products Liability Attorney: 3D Printer Injury By emachado on April 05, 2016

3-D Printer Injuries

3-D printers that are defective can cause injuries in a variety of ways: entrapment from moving parts, explosion, UV exposure, toxicity and failure of the manufactured component.

The materials used in 3-D printers include flammable products, such as, thermoplastics and powder metals.  The building process uses high heat and explosions could occur. Materials used to create the manufactured part may also be toxic, which could cause irritation and skin sensitivity.  The moving parts on a 3-D printer are hazardous and could cause injury. 

3-D Printer Technology

Computer-aided design (CAD) files are used to provide the printer the exact specifications to create the design.  With this information, the 3-D printer produces a series of horizontal cross-sections of the desired object and "stitches" them all together.  When a failure of a 3-D printed product occurs, there are a number of potential defendants and an experienced defective products attorney is critical to the case.
