    1. 1. 3D Printing MATTHEW BAIRD AN-HSIANG CHENG CARRIE GEISS CHRISTOPHER RIHA
    2. 2. Agenda• Introduction/ How it works• Benefits• Applications• Success stories/ Conclusion 2
    3. 3. What is 3D printing?• It’s one rapid prototyping technologies• It creates physical models from CAD and other digital data—layer by layer• It’s widely used, especially in product designing• It reduces a lot of time and cost• It’s a developing technology 3
    4. 4. What is prototyping?Prototyping is a cyclethat producers ordesigning teams makemodels for end users totest, evaluate, or debug,and get feedbacks thenrevise or redesign at thepre-production or mock-up period. 4
    5. 5. Rapid prototyping• Stereolithography (1988)• Fused Deposition Modeling(1990)• Selective Laser Sintering(1992)• 3D Printing (1997)-Comparison table-why 3D printing has become the most popular one?Ans: faster and more inexpensive 5
    6. 6. How does a 3D printer work? 6
    7. 7. 7
    8. 8. Developing Tech: Gadget printer 8
    9. 9. What do you expect to create next?• A light bulb? A motherboard? or an iPod of the nth generation? -Go online, pay, and download the file then…produce yourself! -No packaging, no shipping, no assembly lines needed! 9

    11. 11. Benefits of 3D Printing• Lower cost of prototyping• Allow more design iterations to choose from• Decreases length of the design process• 3D Printers are small and affordable 11
    12. 12. Design Process Concept Proof Of Product Definition Development ProductionDevelopment Concept• Costs of changing design or finding mistakes increase the further into the design process you go• 3D Printing helps you find mistakes early on to save costs 12
    13. 13. Design Process• Most critical phases of design are early on• In the first 10% of the process nearly 80% of the products total costs are determined• More early designs mean better decision making 13
    14. 14. Speed to Market• 3D Printing increases efficiency late in the design process• Capable of developing parts for use in functional prototypes – Some models can produce pieces that can withstand 60 psi pressure in field tests• Cost of late entry to market is enormous 14
    15. 15. Small and Affordable• Previous rapid prototyping machines often required their own departments and operators• 3D Printers can fit neatly near a workstation 15
    16. 16. Future Savings• A professor at USC has now created a technology to eliminate the need of a laser in 3D Printers – Selective Inhibition Sintering (SIS)• Potential cost savings of $10,000 to $20,000 on the 3D Printing machines 16
    17. 17. Applications of 3D Printing• Uses – Marketing – Point of Purchase Signs – Packaging – Product Prototypes – Learning Resources• Industries – Models 17
    18. 18. Industries• Architecture & Design – Models, Topographical Maps, Building Design• Food and Beverage – Posters, Vending Machines, Point of Sale 18
    19. 19. Industries, Cont.• Consumer Products – Marketing Campaigns –R&D • Proof of Concept • Variations of Models • Inexpensive Modifications 19

    21. 21. 3D Printing Success StoryXerox Limited produces new-generation printers, copiers, anddocument centers. The Xeroxdesign team looked to a 3Dprinter to help improve theirefficiency at producingprototype parts by movingaway from the traditional‘machining’ function andmoving more cutting edge rapidprototyping equipment inhouse. 21
    22. 22. 3D Printing Success StoryCamera mounts for theM1 tank and Bradleyfighting vehicle werebuilt and testeddirectly from digitalfiles using theDimension 3D Printer. 22
    23. 23. 3D Printing Success StoryA 3D printer proved tobe a valuable assetand played a key rolein developing conceptsfor the AMP ResearchAlloy Fuel Door forGeneral MotorsHummer H2 sportutility vehicle. 23
    24. 24. 3D Printing Success StoryFrom furniture andlighting to cosmeticproducts and packaging,Karim Rashid is a high-profile industrial designfirm with an esteemedreputation forcommunicating acontemporary view of theworld through its uniquedesigns. 24
    25. 25. 3D Printing Success StoryAltimate Medical Inc.manufactures standingframes and mobilityaids for people withdisabilities, such asspinal cord injuries,muscular dystrophy,multiple sclerosis andcerebral palsy. 25
    26. 26. 3D Printing Success StoryBravilor Bonamat isEuropes leadingmanufacturer of coffeemachines for commercialuse. For more than 55years, the family-ownedcompany has placed apremium on innovative,user-friendly designconcepts that have helpedthe company distinguishitself in the marketplace. 26
    27. 27. 3D Printing Success StoryTaylorMade wanted pro golferMark O’Meara to try out a newset of irons, O’Meara asked touse them at the 1998 SkinsGame. “We had one week toproduce two sets of irons—withclub designs still in CAD and notooling in place,” says JeffBlasius, TaylorMade’s seniortooling engineer. “So wecreated 50 wax patterns on our3-D printer, sent them to thefoundry for casting andfinishing, and delivered them toO’Meara on time. It was theinitial prototype test and Markwon the Skins Game withthem.” 27
    28. 28. 3D Printing Success StoryGuatemalan twins MariaTeresa and Maria de JesusQuiej-Alvarez were bornjoined at the head. The veinsdraining the blood, wereinterwoven and fed into eachothers circulatory system.The most complex part ofthe operation was to sort outthe veins and reroute thetwins blood supply. Becausethe blood vessels werecrisscrossed, tracking themusing standard, two-dimensional x-rays wasimpossible. 28
    29. 29. ConclusionNothing communicates design ideas fasterthan a three-dimensional part or model.With a 3D printer you can bring CAD filesand design ideas to life – right from yourdesktop. Test form, fit and function – andas many design iterations as you like – withfunctional parts. 29
