Transcript of 3D Printing

+ There are many differing 3D printing technologies with various advantages and disadvantages.

+ Tradition Manufacturing What is 3D Printing? The 3D printer allows physical objects to be
created from digital data. 3D Printing Methods Stereolithography
Fused Deposition Modeling
Polyjet Matrix
Selective Laser Sintering
Multi-Jet Modeling How It Works What The Future Holds.... References 3D Printing Chantal Francis
Li Zhi
Colby Raines
Evan Ross 1976 - 3D printing evolves from the invention of inkjet printers The Evolution of 3D Printing The Possibilities Are Endless.......... 1984 - Charles Hull develops stereolithography 1992 - 3D Systems produces the first 3D printer 1999 - early 2000s 3D Printing creates breakthroughs in medicine Cost Savings
Reduced Inventory
High Quality
Ability to combine materials
Accuracy Benefits of 3D Printing Raw materials (typically powder, liquid, or sheet material)
Software capable of designing 3D object (such as CAD)
People (someone has to create the design!)
Technologies capable of removing support material What else is needed? - Cost of Materials and Hardware
- Industry Resistance
- Timely Process
- Consumer Resistance
- Not capable of mass
production (yet) Risks and Challenges 2005 – RepRap is created and sets out to allow buyers to create their own 3D Printers Vendors for Home 3D Printers Jewelry Toy Dental Automobile Architecture Industry Machinery Industries:
Sporting Industry
Jewelry Application 2006 - Selective laser sintering leads to mass customization
a huge breakthrough in manufacturing http://www.explainingthefuture.com/3dprinting.html 2008-2009 – advancements in medicine are coupled with enhancements to the ease with which consumers could make their own printers and manufacture their own products 2011 – 3D printed robotic plane 2011 – 3D printed robotic car Present – Transformation of manufacturing as we currently know it http://individual.troweprice.com/staticFiles/Retail/Shared/PDFs/3D_Printing_Infographic_FINAL.pdf http://on3dprinting.com/2012/08/06/infographic-how-3d-printing-works-industry-growth-stocks-and-more/ http://augmentedtomorrow.com/9-benefits-3d-printing/ 3D printing in the future NASA believes 3D printing is the future of space construction
May be used to make future buildings
May be used to create replacement organs and body parts (such as arms and legs)
Ability to create food (not just chocolate!)
Wide-scale 3D printing may be possible in the future
Speculation it may develop into $1 trillion industry over next ten years
Could 3D printers become commonplace in homes and offices like regular printers are today? http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/02/home-3d-printing-is-killing-the-manufacturing-industry/ Competition + Objet
