Transcript of 3D 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
1. Complex component
:Automotive, aerospace and machinery
G.E Aviation: first 3D-printed parts in jet engine
Royal Dutch Shell: 3D-printed engine component
+ Simpler design
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
3D Business model
design -> upload to 3D printing provider -> choose material -> proceed
No inventory cost
Save time to launch products
Individuals and business
Limitations & Challenges
Creativity & Uniqueness
Custom Ear buds
Shapeways: 3D business model
+ More choices for customers
-1984 Chuck Hull
+ More opportunities
- Cost of 3D printer

-2012 government funding
1) -Cost of 3D printer
- Labour costs are much cheaper
- unable to apply in massive production
2) Limited material
(manufacturing industry and business world)
Risk: *Everyone has their own 3D printer*
- International trade
