Transcript of 3D Printing

Michael Aaronson, Angie Pae,
Gabrielle Rizk, Jake Cohan, Max Goldberg,
Semaj Ray and Tristan Luoma

Origin And History
Invented in 1983 by Charles Hull

Hull's specific technique of stereolithography.

Hull invents 3D file format STL (STereoLithography)

Utilizes additive manufacturing
Impact on Consumer
Market / Public
Falling costs of technology enable public accessibility

Distinct industries (service and manufacturing)

Alternatives to purchasing toys, small items, and replacement devices

Computer Aided Design (CAD) files allow preset design templates or customizable options

Origo allows children to utilize 3D technology

Direct Dimensions' ShapeShot takes digital scan to create a realistic body part
3D Printing at the University
Available for students / faculty at the Duderstadt Center and Taubman School of Architecture

Allow for greater precision and intricacy of parts

Cost and time of printing

Learn the necessary skills for the technology
Dangers Associated With 3D Printing
Potential to print deadly weapon from home

Printed, plastic weapons undetectable in security metal detectors

Criminals allegedly used a 3D printer to build ATM skimming device, stealing $400,000.

Chemist Leroy Cronin working on developing "chemputer"
Government Input

Revitalizing Manufacturing
National Network of Manufacturing Innovation Stimulus

What can the government do?
1) Restrict possession of 3D print objects
2) Restrict selling, distribution, and access of 3D information
3) Control manufacturing, process, and people using 3D printers

Industry Leaders

Grown into multibillion dollar industry since emergence in 1980s

Many 3D technology companies merged and acquired smaller companies.

Industry much more competitive.

Future of 3D Printing
Moving 1 dimension further into Time
Implications in architecture, warfare, operations
Change over time
React to changes in external stimuli
Static to dynamic, adaptable, structures


History and Origin

Positive Consumer Uses

Potential Dangers

Future Applications
