The core of the Internet of Things technology is based on the Internet. Based on 5G network technology, it can effectively carry out multi-address access. The number of accesses is growing very fast, and the capacity is also large, and the delay probability is very low. It can realize the mobile terminal Integration, miniaturization and diversified development; 3D printing is based on a digital model, which is quickly formed by printing layer by layer, and piled up into a three-dimensional entity. 3D printing technology has the characteristics of "fast, smart, full customization, reduced loss, and partial manufacturing", and has a wide range of applications. 3D printing technology helps companies implement product improvements, accelerate design iterations, bring new and innovative business models in terms of material selection and product design, and allow companies to more effectively save costs. Due to the additional functions brought by the development of the Internet of Things, 3D printing can be more promising, and the combination of the two technologies is expected to give birth to exciting future enterprises. Become the mainstay of various innovations that constitute Industry 4.0.
