3D Printing

3D Printing

Overview:

3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. In 3D Printing, the 3D objects are quickly made on a compact machine connected to a computer containing blueprints for the object.   

Additive manufacturing: 

Traditional manufacturing - also called subtractive manufacturing - we carve out the required shape from larger blocks of materials. This results in material waste and limitations on complexity of design. In Additive manufacturing, an object is built layer by layer - by placing successive layers of materials with computercontrol until the entire object is created.

Entry Qualification:

ITI or Draughtsman, Diploma or BE/BTECH from any Engineering/Architecture/Interior Design Branch.

Why 3D Printing?

  • 3D Printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing process and changing the way our world works. It brings three game changing benefits:
  • Produce parts closer to the consumer
  • Produce parts just when required
  • Produce parts in small quantity.

Applications of 3D Printing:

  • Aerospace and Defence
  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Jewellery
  • Art / Design / Sculpture
  • Architecture
  • Medical and Dental
  • Gadgets
  • Fashion Accessories
  • Hearing Aids
  • Toys
  • Entertainment
  • Engineering and Manufacturing
  • Education

    The advantages:

  • Allows mass customisation - The ability to personalize products according to individual needs and requirements. Even within the same build chamber. 3D Printing allows you to make different products at the same time according to specific end-user requirements at no additional process cost!
  • Low investment - The investment for 3D Print manufacturing process is far lower than the traditional processes. And they require much lesser space!
  • Zero inventory - 3D Prints can be made at short notice, the need to stock is fully eliminated leading to savings in inventory costs.
  • Savings in logistics - Printing closer to the customer means no costs for shipping and logistics
  • Energy-efficient - 3D Printing technologies provide environmental efficiencies for the manufacturing process itself. They create less waste.
  • A traditional factory will have 100 people running 10 machines. A 3D Printing Factory will have 10 people running 50 to 100 3D Printers. That’s a big shift!

    Opportunities in 3D Printing:

  • The total 30 Printing (3DP) market will nearly expand to $12 billion in 2025.
  • 3D Printing becomes a more broadly accepted method of manufacturing products.
  • Applied in a number of industries today including aerospace and defence. automotive and healthcare.
  • Desktop 3D Printing is redefining short run production. You can now make a product at home, the office, a hospital or a school,bringing manufacturing to non-manufacturers the way PCs brought computing to non-traditional environments.
