The Wonder of 3D Printing

The first industrial revolution
began in Britain in the late
18th century, with the
mechanisation of the textile
First Industrial Revolution
The second industrial revolution came in the early 20th
century, when Henry Ford mastered the moving assembly line
and ushered in the age of mass production. The third
revolution is under way and that consists of manufacturing
going digital.

Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black.Remark about the Model T in
1909, published in his autobiography My Life and Work (1922) Chapter IV, p. 71; this has often become presented in
paraphrased forms such as: "You can have any color as long as it's black."

What is 3D Printing?
is a form of Additive Manufacturing
Process of joining materials to make an object
from 3D model Data; layer-by-layer process
What is 3D Printing?
Digital Fabrication
- it takes a model
a digital design
turn into real, physical Object

Adopted 3D printing as a way to increase innovation
Reduce costs and speed up the process.
3D models of buildings can be easily created and edited as plans
develop something that used to take a significant amount of time
to make.
Airbus would like to make a 3D printer that is large enough to
make planes from the ground up a hangar-size printer as large
as 80m x 80m.
Made In Space is a US company experimenting with zero-
gravity 3D printing. The process could potentially allow
astronauts to print objects as required in space, saving valuable
weight at launch.
NASA has been looking at 3D printing for some time now, and
considering the technology for long missions where astronauts
could create their own equipment during the trip.

Medical Procedures
Custom hearing aids and braces.
Body parts, including ears, hips and even
organs, in exact proportions to fit the patient.
In February 2012, surgeons successfully
implanted an entire titanium jaw, made with
3D printing, in an elderly woman.
