Sewook Hur “Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material.” What Is 3D Printing? “3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques (subtractive processes) which mostly rely on the removal of material by drilling, cutting etc.” The Basics Builds product based off of computer design
Raw Materials
extremely refined/ broken down
Layers Materials at .003 inches per layer
Thickness of human hair/sheet of paper Additive Process What makes everything possible
Layers are key
similar to building with legos
Apply successful layers of solid material
bonded together at hot temperature Computer Aided Designs Model is based off of CAD
Designs downloaded or user created
Build what it is told 3D Cartridge Plastic Blends Nanocomposites Powdered Metals Living Cells Importance of 3D Printing Ability to revolutionize manufacturing and society
Affect every facet of business
Expansion beyond simply prototyping Society Uses 3D Printing The Possibilities Are Endless! Trends Statistics 3D Printing Industry will reach $3.1 Billion by 2016
