3D-Printing -
the Impact of technology on society
Introducing the technology of 3D-printing
The potential to change the way we design, manufacture and distribute goods
Fields of possibility: medicine
Challenges: gun control and intellectual property
Complexity is free
It is possible to create complex shapes that cannot be produced by any other means
A relocation of production?
Move production to where people live, instead of moving people to production!
Moving production "back" from low wage countries
International design - local production
One factory making all parts - no need for subcontractors
One factory producing multitudinous goods
Easy to adapt to changing markets
- Decreasing number of employees doing manual labor
Reduces material waste
Decreased energy use
Minimal use of harmful chemicals
Minimizes carbon footprint
- Can you think of any other possible positive or negative impacts that 3D technology may have on society?
The Printing Press
The Steam Engine
The Internet
The 3D Printer
Historical parallels
Technological breakthroughs that changed society
- The digitalization of craft
Elimination of shipment
Additive manufacturing
Lowering thresholds for entrepreneurs
