First Industrial Revolution
The first industrial revolution
“began in Britain in the late
18th century, with the
mechanisation of the textile
Second 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
“Any Customer can have a
car painted any colour that he
wants so long as it is black”
Henry Ford’s Remark on the Model T, 1909
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."

How 3D Printing Can Change the world?
Advances in research
• 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
• 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 zerogravity 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.
• 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.
•Started in 2005 by Dr Adrian Bowyer
•Develop an open source self-replicating 3D printer
•Short for Replicating Rapid Prototype
