3D Printing
History of 3D printing
Model design is created and input into CAD computer software.

The design is sent to the 3D printer.


Fused Deposition Modeling-lays down materials in layers
thermoplastics, rubber, clay

Direct metal laser sintering- fuses metal powder into a solid part
almost any metal alloy, thermoplastic powder

3D printing companies
Risks of 3D Printing
Benefits of 3D Printing
- Production of functional and technical prototypes

- Reduced costs for manufacturers

- Reduction of process steps of production

- Substantial saver of space and capacity

- Substantial improvements for the environment

- Elimination of physical imports and exports

- Reduction in the limitations associated with
product design
