Re: 3D Printers and JIT Production

3D printing technology to enable Just In Time (JIT) production at the end of the supply chain is a radical concept. Huge savings might be achieved if we could avoid purchasing and storing items in the event of a need

There will probably be a long way to go to fully realize the possibilities of JIT production--with niches filling first--but the enormous savings will no doubt prevail.

The notion of using 3D printing technology to enable Just In Time (JIT) production at the end of the supply chain is a radical concept. Huge savings might be achieved if we could avoid purchasing and storing items in the event of a need. Instead the necessary emergency supplies and equipment could be produced on site if and when they are needed.

Yes, there are several 3-D printers specializing in circuit boards nearing release--from the $300,000 "GreenJet" from Camtek for professionals to the $3500 EX from a Kickstarter project for hobbyists.

"...between these three different technologies, which offer completely different ways of doing 3D printing. Four chose FDM, seven chose poly-jet, and three chose SLS. "

3D printing is a revolutionary technology that helps productivity immensely. Saves tooling cost for making prototypes, shorten project cycle by eliminating tooling development time & shipment. Good to that the college students are made aware about the advantages and effective utilization of the different 3D printing technologies available today. Wish to see a 3D printing technology for making the PCBs too very soon!
