This presentation explored the foundation of ‘the next industrial revolution’ - how additive manufacturing systems such as 3D printers and 3D production systems are changing the future of product development and manufacturing. Mr. Fischer presented examples of how design engineers use 3D production systems for concept modeling and prototyping, but also how manufacturing engineers are now employing these technologies for various applications such as jigs, fixtures, check gauges, and even as a bridge-to-tooling and low-volume end-use parts.

From the 2013 Taking Shape Summit: Additive Manufacturing: 3D Printing--Beyond Rapid Prototyping.

  • 15. Typical Design Cycle Design Change Design Change
  • 16. Prototype Early & Often to Minimize Cost of Change 80% of Product cost finalized 10,000 Relative Costs 1,000 100 10 1 $ Concept $ Engineering $ Detail Tooling Source: Rosenberg, Boston University Production
  • 17. Ideal Design Cycle Design Change
  • 18. Primary Applications for Additive Manufacturing Technology Additive Manufacturing Concept Models Functional Prototypes Manufacturing Tools End-Use Parts Established / Traditional Direct Digital Manufacturing (Design) (Manufacturing)
  • 19. Conceptual Models & Functional Prototypes Direct benefits • Reduce time to market • Solidify design earlier • Reduce late design changes • Lower product development cost • Design changes earlier in process • Make mistakes early and often Indirect benefits • Facilitate communication • Improve product design
  • 20. Henk and I – Zodiac Pool Systems Henk and I Zodiac Pool Systems Henk and I, an industrial design firm located in Johannesburg Zodiac Pool Systems, a global leader in swimming pool products, based in San Diego Challenge Design a pool cleaner with a low-speed, high-torque motor that reduces the number of moving parts and potential for failure Previous process was outsourcing models and prototypes Solution To work efficiently in the highly iterative design process, Henk and I required an onsite 3D printer that could keep pace with its engineers’ ideas “As we developed the concept, we built FDM parts to fully understand the design and communicate our ideas. We also built aesthetic models and shared them with Marketing to help them choose a design look.” “By using our own in-house 3D printer, we were able to complete the design process in about half the time” – Henk van der Meijden
  • 21. Toro Prototypes Withstand 100 psi Prototypes need to withstand high pressures • • Other rapid prototypes don’t hold up Machining is costly; requires long lead times Fortus makes functional prototypes • • Produced in a few hours PC meets mechanical requirements Design perfected for a fraction of the cost • • Engineers able to quickly test design ideas Mold right the first time Dramatic savings over 2 years • • Development time reduced by 283 weeks Tooling and bureau costs cut $500,000 Conventional Machining Fortus Time savings 283 weeks Cost savings $500,000+
