  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community 3D Printing, also known as Additive Manufacturing, is an emerging manufacturing technology that will disrupt many industries 5 HorizonWatching Trend Report: 3D Printing/Additive ManufacturingJuly 2013 ―Additive 3D printers deposit resin, plastic or another material, layer by layer, to build up a physical model. Inkjet 3D printers image successive layers of plastic powder, hardening each layer on contact, to build up the piece. The size of the part varies with the specific manufacturer’s printer and whether support structures are required.‖ – Gartner (link) Video: TED Talk: Lisa Harouni: A primer on 3D printing ―Like an office printer that puts 2D digital files on a piece of paper, a 3D printer creates components by depositing thin layers of material one after another using a digital blueprint until the exact component required has been created‖ – Whitehouse.gov (link) ―Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes.‖ – Wikipedia (link)
  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community The History of 3D Printing 7 HorizonWatching Trend Report: 3D Printing/Additive ManufacturingJuly 2013 ―The inception of 3D printing can be traced back to 1976, when the inkjet printer was invented.‖ – T.Rowe Price (Infographic) T.Rowe Price - A Brief History of 3D Printing ―March 11, 1983 - Charles Hull, later the co- founder of 3D Systems, invents stereolithography, a printing process that enables a tangible 3D object to be created from digital data.‖ – 3D PrinterPrices.net: History of 3D Printing Selected Articles • 3ders.org: The History of 3D Printing • 3D PrinterPrices.net: History of 3D Printing • T.Rowe Price - A Brief History of 3D Printing • How Stuff Works – history of 3-D Printing ―The earliest development of 3-D printing technologies happened at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and at a company called 3D Systems. In the early 1990s, MIT developed a procedure it trademarked with the name 3-D Printing, which it officially abbreviated as 3DP.‖ – How Stuff Works (link)
  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community 3D Printing Process 3D Printing begins with a CAD 3D Design Model, which is then used to send specific instructions to the printer about the amount, location and type of material to use. Using a 3D digital CAD model as the ―blueprint,‖ successive layers of material are precisely deposited or fused by a computer controlled ―print head‖ into the desired 3 dimensional shape. No machining of the part is required, thus no raw material is wasted.

  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community Analysts are predicting growth and opportunity for 3D Printing 13 HorizonWatching Trend Report: 3D Printing/Additive ManufacturingJuly 2013 ―The global market for 3D Printing is projected to reach US$2.99 billion by the year 2018, driven by the advent of newer technologies, approaches, and applications. Expanding use of the technology in manufacturing final products, declining cost of printers, and increasing use of 3D printing technology in newer areas bodes well for market growth.‖ – GIA (link) ―By 2015, Wohlers Associates believes that the sale of AM products and services will reach $3.7 billion worldwide, and by 2019, surpass the $6.5 billion mark.‖ – Wohler’s Associates (link) ―We project that 3D printing will be an $8.4 billion market in 2025 led by automotive, medical, and aerospace applications. In the longer term, it has potential to reshape the manufacturing ecosystem, but it will have the most impact in the near term for products that are made in small volumes, require high customization, and are more cost-tolerant.‖ – Lux Research (link) Wohlers Associates 2012 report (link) ―The AM industry has grown in the double digits for 15 of its 24 years.‖ – Wohler’s Associates (link)
  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community For all Manufacturers…and users… of 3D objects, 3D Printing will change what we make, how we make it, and how we acquire it. Typical Manufacturing Applications • A prototype for a new product • A highly customized or complex part or product • A product with complex features or geometries traditional manufacturing cannot make • A small run of an existing part / product • Quick replacement of no-longer-being- made parts for an older legacy products • Need for a one-off object fast and can‘t wait for the longer traditional manufacturing cycle, shipping, customs or other delays 3D Printing: Make anything you want July 201315 HorizonWatching Trend Report: 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing
  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community 3D bioprinting will allow for the printing of cells placed in predetermined patterns to replicate human tissues, organs, and blood vessels 17 HorizonWatching Trend Report: 3D Printing/Additive ManufacturingJuly 2013 ―Scientists are working on extending the principles of 3D printing to constructing organs and tissues using bioprinters.‖ – Gentic Engineering & Biotechnology News (link) Video: Bioprinting overview at Economist Ideas (link) ―The NovoGen MMX Bioprinter™ is a novel hardware and software platform at the forefront of bioprinting research and development. The platform takes primary or other human cells and shapes them into 3D tissue, with tremendous cellular viability and biology that is superior to even an animal model.‖ – Organovo (link) Example Implications: • May potentially eliminate the need for organ donors. New organs printed using cells harvested from patient. • May provide doctors and surgeons with on-demand human tissue

  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community Implications: Improved product development process yields more efficient designs, design changes, and more effective experimentation which results in superior products 41 HorizonWatching Trend Report: 3D Printing/Additive ManufacturingJuly 2013 New Product Designs: • Designs that cannot be built using ANY other manufacturing process • Custom surface coatings & textures, • Stronger materials only where you need them • Embedding secondary functional materials (optical / electrical). Co-Creation: Customers actively participate in the design of the products they will buy. Increasingly, they will design their own products Better Products: Products have superior characteristics (highly complex geometries, materials) and are customized for the end users. Rapid Prototyping • Reduces the need for tooling, machining, and handcrafting prototypes • No long lead times for castings, forgings, molds, etc. • No need to maintain inventories of castings, forgings, molds, etc. • Experimentation is faster, easier VIDEO: Shapeways 3D Printing & the Culture of Creativity ―The ability to produce highly complex designs with powerful computer software and turn them into real objects with 3D printing is creating a new design language.‖ – Economist (link)
  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community Implications: Supply Chains 43 HorizonWatching Trend Report: 3D Printing/Additive ManufacturingJuly 2013 • Production moves closer to end user • Shipping of designs instead of products • Bring a portion of manufacturing back to home country • Outsourcing production in large volumes to offshore facilities is less cost effective. • New lean yet agile supply chain • Distributed manufacture • Manufacture and the point of consumption • Demand pull business models • Stockless supply chains • Chainless supply chains (home manufacture) • Post Office, UPS, FedEx? ―Designs, not products, would move around the world as digital files to be printed anywhere by any printer that can meet the design parameters. The Internet first eliminated distance as a factor in moving information and now AM eliminates it for the material world.‖ – Atlantic Council (link) ―Assembly lines and supply chains can be reduced or eliminated for many products. The final product—or large pieces of a final product like a car—can be produced by AM in one process unlike conventional manufacturing in which hundreds or thousands of parts are assembled. ‖ – Atlantic Council (link)
  • © 2013 HorizonWatching Creative Commons Attribution License HorizonWatching Community Implications: New Business Opportunity Example Scenario Scenario: A design shop in Michigan, USA, posts a 3D CAD design for part for a1965 Italian car on the Internet A customer in Italy searching for the part, finds the 3D Design file on the internet, purchase the rights to print one copy, and contracts with a Italian local 3D printer services firm to print the part. Result: While the design for the item originates in the USA, the item is manufactured in Italy, so there are no USA sales taxes, international shipping, or import/customs duties. Suddenly, the US auto parts company is competitive in Italy. July 201345 HorizonWatching Trend Report: 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing
