Transcript of 3D Printing
CREATED BY: Chris Reed
An additive process where successive layers of materials are laid down in different shapes to create a 3D object
Democratization of Design
How Does it Work
1.What is 3D Printing?
2. How Does it Work?
3. Applications and Implications
3D Printing - A Brief History
3D Printed Organs
Scientists at Wake Forest engineer a miniature functional kidney that is able to filter blood and produce diluted urine in an animal.
Open Source Collaboration
Hoping to democratize manufacturing, Dr. Adrian Bowyer at the University of Bath founds RepRap, an open source initiative to build a 3D printer that can print most of its own components.
World's 1st 3D Printed Car
Kor Ecologic develops the Urbee, an environmentally friendly car with a complete 3D-printed body. They plan to travel from San Francisco to New York City in 2 days on only 10 gal. of biofuel
3D Printed Prosthetic Jaw Implanted
Doctors in the Netherlands successfully implanted a 3D-printed prosthetic jawbone into an 83-year-old woman suffering from a chronic bone infection
The Birth of 3D Printing
Charles Hull, co-founder of 3D Systems invents Stereolithography (SLA)
First Complex Parts Created
3D Systems creates the 1st SLA machine capable of producing highly complex, albeit imperfect, parts overnight
3D Printing Methods
Digital Light Processing (DLP)
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
Electron Beam Melting (EBM)
Multi-Jet Modeling (MJM)
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
Reduced Inventories (Reduced Supply Chains)
Mass - Customization
High-Quality and Accuracy
