Transcript of 3D Printing

3-D Printing
- Additive manufacturing (AM):
2-Dimension build up components in layer and become 3-Dimension object.

- Material in powder form: metal, plastic,paper etc.

Customization and Personalized products
Mass customization :
Growth of short production run
Opportunities for small business
Wide variety of personalized products
Industrial Application

1. Complex component
:Automotive, aerospace and machinery

G.E Aviation: first 3D-printed parts in jet engine
Royal Dutch Shell: 3D-printed engine component

+ Lighter
+ Simpler design
+ Durability
2. Digital Storage
“When 3D-printing technology is available on-site, spare parts can be stored digitally, ready for when the required part needs to be produced”

e.g Aberdeen Energy Practice
Replacement of oil rigs components : digitally stored

-Transportation cost

3D Business model

‘Weekend entrepreneur’:
design -> upload to 3D printing provider -> choose material -> proceed

No inventory cost
Low risk
Save time to launch products
Individuals and business
Manufacturing industry
Limitations & Challenges
Creativity & Uniqueness
Industrial revolution?
Custom Ear buds
Robotic Prosthetic
Shapeways: 3D business model
+ More choices for customers

- Labour costs are much cheaper
- unable to apply in massive production

2) Limited material

3D printing
Innovative ideas
(manufacturing industry and business world)

Future -Technology
-Consistent material

Customization &
Improve Manufacturing
Risk: *Everyone has their own 3D printer*
