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"
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
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
