3D Impact

With this type of application, it is very possible that 3D could have real impact on commerce and industry far beyond where anyone would have imagined. Its application is evolving and this sector is just young.

Yes you are right. 3-D printing is no longer just for prototypes, but can also be used for limited-run end-user products. For long runs its still cheaper to use stamp dies for sheet metal, injection molds for plastic parts, and CNC (computer numerical control) machine tools for metal parts, but I predict that the day is in sight when even mass produced items will be using cheap, super-fast versions of todays 3-D printers.

Advancements on 3D printer front are so quick and big that printer sounds like a misnomer for this technology. Hopefully someone will come up with a better name.

You are very astute, Wilber, how about these:

CADmaker

Manufabber

Quikbuilder

Massformer

OK, so those aren't so good :(

Can any of you out their come up with something better?

Indeed, it is stunning that a rocket thruster can be 3D printed. It seems like just a few years ago 3D printing was mostly restricted to objects that could be made out of plastic.

Yes, there already are 3-D printers speciically designed for dentists. Check out this video from Stratasys about how it works.

Refractory materials

Printing is a great way of producing 2-D objects, but not necessarily a quick way of making 3-D ones.

However, if you're making something from tough, notoriously refractory materials, (which is pretty much par for the course when building rocket motors), it makes a lot more sense to build them up than to turn a large lump of the stuff into (mostly) scrap.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
