How 3D Printing Will Revolutionize and Revive American Manufacturing in the 21st Century
Eu já havia lido a respeito, mas ver é outra coisa!
O blog do Prof. Mark Perry (http://mjperry.blogspot.com) traz um post (de ontem) interessante sobre 3D Printing (Impressão de Terceira Dimensão).
Ele inicia com um vídeo da revista Forbes (http://video.forbes.com/fvn/future-tech/autodesk-on-3d-printing), escreve o post abaixo, e apresenta o vídeo mais abaixo que é simplesmente incrível:
Forbes (Rich Karlgaard)
— “The transformative technology of the 2015-2025 period could be 3D printing. This has the potential to remake the economics of manufacturing from a large-scale industry back to an artisan model of small design shops with access to 3D printers. In other words, making stuff, real stuff, could move from being a capital intensive industry into something that looks more like art and software. This should favor the American skill set of creativity.”
Amazing, revolutionary potential here for manufacturing and even for medical applications like organ replacement. According to Autodesk CTO Jeff Kowalski, because of 3D printing, “The next five years in manufacturing are going to be substantially different than anything we’ve seen before. With 3D printing, production and complexity become essentially free. 3D printing will make manufacturing localized, customizable and accessible, with no penalty for personalization or complexity. It’s entirely possible that the U.S. could see self-sufficiency and a self-sustaining future.”
