What is 3D Printing?
Encourage the popularization of 3D Printing in the near future
energy uses & material wastes?
Today's technology & Future
Legal Concerns of 3D Pri
Uses of 3D Printing
In October 2014 a five-year-old girl born without fingers on her left hand was given a customized new hand and became the first to use a 3D printer for a medical use.
Today we use 3D printing for things such as:
How Do 3D Printers Work?
Fused Deposition Modeling
3D models can be easily distributed just like music and pictures.
Selective Laser Sintering
Who is Affected?
Companies and Hobbyists
Predicted loss of $100 billion/year in intellectual property globally
Layer live cells on a sugar medium allowing them to grow into 3D structures.
No current anti-piracy measures
Effects on the Market
International Adoption of the Industry
China, India, South Africa, Brazil
3D printing in the emerging economies would reach $4.5 billion by 2020
Already worth $2 billion in U.S.
Related companies expected to keep on increasing revenues in NYSE from 10% to 535% collectively
Impact on the Manufacturing Industry
Technology is not efficient
$50/kg for filament
Slow printing times
Guarantees freedom of assembly, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech.
Jobs are starting to come back to the United States.
Cheap replacements for common household items
Learning curve and major investment
The right of the people to keep and bear arms
USA PATRIOT Act
Acronym that stands for
errorism Act of 2001
you cannot copy any artwork or written ideas
you cannot request copyright for any drawing or design of any useful objects
Legal Concerns within 3D Printing
About the Future...
No more transporting products.
No more unsold products.
No wasted materials
More lifetime for what you have
Recycling gets easier
More of a benefit to them and not the companies
