  3. 3. © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation. All rights reserved. SR-1563B Around the world, 3D printers are emerging as a potentially major disruption to manufacturing, production, and trade. Bringing the power to print and manufacture goods to impoverished and isolated households and communities has huge implications for poverty alleviation efforts in and of itself. But when combined with advances in recycling and reuse processes, the impacts will be unprecedented. Think of a community without waste removal systems— covered in the scourge of plastic bags tossed into the air, wreaking havoc on livestock, farming, and beyond. Now think of individuals melting down recovered plastic and, for example, printing them into useful components for locally made agricultural machines. 3 12 | GPP | Future Innovation © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation.

  4. 4. © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation. All rights reserved. SR-1563B Players grappled with the power of 3D printers and how they might be used to build new paths out of poverty. Ideas ranged from the wacky to the cautionary. Some imagined printing entire cities once the capacity for large-scale printing has been fully scaled. Others worried about how to provide the necessary inputs to 3D printing. Many ideas were more pragmatic: some suggested ways in which recycled materials could be used as inputs to printers, simultaneously dealing with waste issues as well as resource issues. One player highlighted the need to include programing and CAD skills training alongside 3D printer distribution. 4 12 | GPP | From the Players © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation.

Using solar panels for power, these printers sinter the sand into a solid material that can then be printed into a wide array of objects. The 3D4D Challenge 3D4D Challenge finalist Roy Ombatti wants to provide properly shaped 3D printed shoes that prevent further deterioration for people suffering from foot infections and deformities caused by the Jigger Fly in his home country of Kenya. 12 | GPP | Signals from the Present Solar Sinter Image Source: www.3d4dchallenge.org/finalistsImage Source: www.markuskayser.com/work/solarsinter

This development takes some of the expertise out of building houses—the only skill needed to run this printer is a basic understanding of CAD. 12 | GPP | Signals from the Present 3D Printed House Image Source: www.gizmag.com/d-shape-3d-printer/21594
