3D printing – the future of manufacturing?

2015/09/25 @ 08:30 - 10:00

3D printing is coming of age. It is becoming a rapid “manufacturing” technology that will have a great deal of influence on how we live in the future and will have a profound impact on almost all manufactured products, on how we do business, and on how we live longer and healthier lifestyles. 3D printing completely changes the design rules that designers and engineers have traditionally been ‘constrained’ by. By allowing us to now think differently about the products we design, it opens up a whole new range of opportunities for creativity and sustainability. It also allows inventors and entrepreneurs to get their products to market without the large capital risks of traditional manufacturing that becomes a barrier to innovation.

On the 25th of September @IdeonAgora, between 8.30am-10.00am, Olaf Diegel
Professor and Head of Division at Product Development, Design Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, will talk about 3D printing technologies  and examine some of their current and future applications in the fields of art, engineering, business, and health.

He will discuss some of the social implications these technologies will have on design and on how we live, and examine some of the issues around how we need to start adapting today in order to be ready for the technology tomorrow.
