Transcript

  • 1. How can 3D printing make the economy more circular ?
  • 2. What’s the Circular Economy?
  • 3. What’s the circular economy ? What’stheCircularEconomy/EllenMacArthurFondation See our presentation
  • 4. What is 3D printing ?
  • 5. 3D printing is an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. After creating the form on a computer, the printer makes the form the same way the traditionnal printer prints on a regular sheet of paper. What is 3D printing ?
  • 6. How does it work?
  • 7. The printing is made layer by layer *there are other processes but we won’t talk about them here
  • 8. Any object can be created on a computer, and then be shared and printed anywhere. A preview of Thingiverse
  • 9. One printer can make an entire object* Open Reflex by Léo Marius *here only the lense part was not printed.
  • 10. The printing can be made in plastic, cement, gypsum, ceramic, metal, carbon fiber, sugar... (the list is still growing...) plastic cement Voronoi Vase by Dizingof Lunar base printing by NASA
  • 11. "The Hidden" a vase printed in 3D - photo Reuters How can 3D printing make the economy more circular? (in other words, using less energy without generating waste)
  • 12. The printing is made layer by layer Only what’s necessary is printed. 3D printing enables «zero waste» production from the beginning.
  • 13. «3D printing gives us the ability to build layer by layer, it even gives us the ability to think about putting a layer of one material, a layer of another material, like Nature does.» Janyne Benyus - founder of Biomimicry 3.8
  • 14. Any object can be created on a computer, and then be shared and printed anywhere. No more warehouse and transportation cost.
  • 15. Open Reflex par Léo Marius It requires less ressources. One printer can make an entire object*
  • 16. There will be more and more local and biosourced filaments (no oil, no water needed to make the filament) The Seaweed filament is exclusively based on black seaweed.
  • 17. Reusing material will be much easier. Endless by Dirk Vander Kooij. Furniture printed with recovered plastics from old refrigerators
  • 18. What can it change for business?
  • 19. Dentelle by Samuel Bernier Instead of selling an object, a designer or a brand will sell its printing plans.
  • 20. Dentelle by Samuel Bernier - no more transportation - production on demand Instead of selling an object, a designer or a brand will sell its printing plans.
  • 21. A brand can print a personnalised product. In the US, Nike or New Balance print on demand & personalized soles for their athlete shoes.
  • 22. - production on demand - personnalised product In the US, Nike or New Balance print on demand & personalized soles for their athlete shoes. A brand can print a personnalised product.
  • 23. In workshops, people will be able to fix their objects by printing the missing or broken part. In Leroy Merlin Angers, the Atelier enables their customers to fix their objects.In Leroy Merlin Angers, the Atelier enables their customers to fix their objects.In Leroy Merlin Angers, the Atelier enables their customers to fix their objects.
  • 24. - fixing stuff is easier - reduce waste In workshops, people will be able to fix their objects by printing the missing or broken part.

  • 25. In a garage, instead of ordering a new piece, a mechanic will print the necessary parts. OSVehicle enables anyone to create a car in 45 minutes with many 3D printed pieces.
  • 26. - no warehouse - no transportation - production on demand In a garage, instead of ordering a new piece, a mechanic will print the necessary parts. OSVehicle enables anyone to create a car in 45 minutes with many 3D printed pieces.
  • 27. Brands will rethink their products and business models to enable easier hacking and fixing with 3D printing. Brands could give their 3D printing plans to enable their customers to print the fragile pieces.
  • 28. - easy fixing - possible ending for planned obsolescence Brands will rethink their products and business models to enable easier hacking and fixing with 3D printing. Brands could give their 3D printing plans to enable their customers to print the fragile pieces.
  • 29. It’s just the beginning... «In that printer, let’s make sure we put some aqueous chemistry which is what Life does. We are all going to be using nanoparticles as those in our print cartridges. Life is nanoparticles all the time. Nature was nanoparticles before nano was cool. Janyne Benyus - fondatrice de Biomimicry 3.8
  • 30. To sum up, 3D printing opens new opportunities...
  • 31. economical opportunities No more transportation or warehouse costs Photo:StoryvillegirlsurFlickr
  • 32. economical opportunities Better local resilience ResilienceSurvey-YSConline Resilience is the ability of an ecosystem to adapt itself in case of catastrophic event (climate, energy...).
  • 33. environmental opportunities Energy saving
  • 34. Raw materials savings environmental opportunities A 3D printer fixed up a 2D printer - impression-3D.com The broken part... is created in 3D... and then printed.
  • 35. Easier biomimetic conception environmental opportunities Photo:sebmussurFlickr Scientifics are now able to print a very resistant foam based on the structure of the tucan beak !
  • 36. A TechShop in San Francisco Activity relocation social opportunities
  • 37. An Open Bidouille Camp in Brest (open hardware event for everyone) New skills social opportunities
  • 38. To go further... Janine Benyus at the Circular Economy 100 Annual Summit A field manual for re-designing a regenerative economy - Ellen MacArthur Foundation
  • 39. Waste in general New revenues Social and environmental positive impactsL e r é s e a u d e l ’ u p c y c l i n g Wiithaa, the upcycling network Wiithaa help companies dealing with waste thanks to design thinking, methodology and toolkit. By transforming a cost in new economic, social and environmental opportunities, we enable companies to integrate the circular economy in their business.
