Transcript of Copy of Angry Birds - Free Prezi Template
1. Cheap manufacturing
A study led by Joshua Pearce, an associate professor at Michigan Technological University, shows that a home 3D printer can save the average home up to $2,000 per year.
Up to 70 percent of companies’ manufacturing cost can be saved by utilizing 3D printing technologies.
2. Quick production
BMW has saved 58% in costs and 92% in time by manufacturing its parts with Stratasys, which is one of the world's largest 3D printer manufacturers.
3. Less energy
Prof Pearce's study also shows that using a 3D printer to make an item consumed about 41 to 64 percent less energy than making it in a factory.
What's Driving the 3D Printing Industry?
2. US Continues to be the Largest 3D Printing Market
1) Use extremely large quantities of energy
2) Air pollution (possible health risks if used domestically)
3) Reliance on plastic
4) Possibility of creating weapons
undetectable for security
not licensed weapon
5) possible drug printing
6) May not be safe for food utensils
7) Intellectual property rights concerns
Benefits in Medicine
Creation of physical object from 3D model
Uses layers of various materials, usually plastics
What is 3D Printing?
3D Printing Timeline
Created in 1984 by Charles W. Hull (~$20,000)
With technology, prices dropped drastically (~$1,000)
Today, M3D has created a 3D printer for consumer use ($299)
*Ship in August 2014
Use patient cells instead of plastic
Eliminates risk of rejection
Drastically decreases wait time for transplant
RepRap - the machine that builds itself
Projected to bring an end to complex supply chains
Reduce manufacturing costs by 23% within 10 years
Brings possibility of niche markets (long tail concept)
Greatly decreases time of design and manufacturing cycles
Can create identical and completely functional copies of almost any manufactured products
The technology is already widely used to make jewelry and other fashion items, in dental laboratories to produce crowns, bridges and implants, as well as in the production of hearing aids and prostheses, offering patients a perfect fit. 3-D printing is particularly suited to low-volume, short production runs offering companies a more flexible, cost-effective and speedy alternative to traditional mass production methods.
The technology is also being used to make complex parts for the electronics, automotive and aerospace industries. Major car manufacturers, such as GM, Jaguar Land Rover and Audi, have been 3-D printing auto parts for a number of years. Leading aircraft manufacturers Airbus (part of the European aerospace and defense group, (EADS)) and Boeing are using it to improve the performance of their aircraft and reduce maintenance and fuel costs. Boeing uses 3-D printing to produce environmental control ducting (ECD) for its 787 aircraft.
NASA engineers are 3-D printing parts, which are structurally stronger and more reliable than conventionally crafted parts, for its space launch system. The Mars Rover comprises some 70 3-D-printed custom parts.
