AI-powered 3D printing technology enables possibility to save lives

I remember the first time when I encountered 3D printing was in university public workplace 10 years ago. It was so huge and expensive devices so that there was a burden to use it personally. The biggest obstacles in applications of medical 3D printing work are cost issues. These are big hurdles. Time cost for 3D printing work, opportunistic cost for many researchers to move together and financial cost for material and machine and so on. I think there should be a platform to reduce these costs with software. Strong AI-based medical 3D printing workflow platform provides superior surgical planning for surgeons and doctors, assist in optimal doctor-patient communication, and also serve as an effective training and educational tool for the medical 3D printing. Attend and find out.

Industry Application

3D Printing for Industrial Applications

Additive manufacturing (AM), more commonly referred to as 3D printing, has come a long way since its introduction in the 1980’s, growing at over 25% per annum over the last 30 years and accounting for around $14 billion spend in 2019. It has proven benefits in providing entirely new design capability, redistributing supply chains closer to end consumers, and making manufacturing processes more efficient and sustainable. Four sectors -- aerospace, industrial machines & tooling, medical/dental implants, and automotive – in particular account for nearly 65% of the global AM market. Despite low current penetration levels, other industrial sectors have equal potential to benefit from AM. For example, the maritime, mobility and the natural resources industries (mining, cement, chemicals) are characterized by geographic fragmentation and remote locations, posing challenges around logistics and inventory management of parts. The problem can be partly addressed by 3D printing and building a digital spare parts warehouse optimizing the overall inventory and cost of logistics.
Join this session to know more about applications and case studies of 3D printing in industrial applications.

State of the Art of 3D Printing of Buildings and Concrete Structures

The last years, the media has been filled with stories about new start-ups 3D printing an entire building in less than 1 day. The stories in the press have made the interest for 3D printing buildings explode with millions of downloads of the videos announced. The stories are fuelling peoples hope for making buildings cheaper and for finally solving the need for affordable housing. More and more 3D printed buildings are popping u around the world, yet we have not yet seen a large scale application of the 3D construction printing technology, where the technology has been used to create a series of buildings.
So what is the real truth here ? Can buildings be 3D printed in 24 hours ? Is it all just hype, but if so what makes a company like GE invest in the technology now ? Will 3D construction printing finally disrupt the construction sector and create all the new possibilities promised ?

AIRMESH: First Functional Stainless-Steel 3D Printed Space Frame Structure in Singapore

The session investigates the application of metal 3D-printing as structural element in architectural scale for complex space frame structure with the theoretical and practical implication. A recently finished design and construction for a 30 sqm surface and 4.8-meter-tall inhabitable lightweight stainless-steel space frame pavilion by the authors support the hypothesis that AM in stainless steel has a clear application in both architectural and structural design. The integration of multiple functional building components of architectural system such as foundation, openings, floor decking, façade cladding, as well as lighting features are implemented in a tetrahedral structure. The main aim is to explore the spectrum of pliability and adaptability of nodal joint system to achieve seamless aesthetic composition alongside with optimal structural performance.
Using an entirely computational-driven design workflow, the non-standard load-bearing structure is conceived and manufactured through bespoke algorithms that combine spatial requirements, structural performance and site-specific data to inform its form. Geometric optimization processes based on force distribution are applied to attain structural efficiency and extreme material reduction in developing a fully functional space frame. This process demonstrates that metal 3D printing opens an entire new set of design opportunities, spanning from extreme levels of precision to minimal tolerances and transition between printed and non-printed standard components that require the use of custom-built software and dynamic parametric models to conceptualize and advance a new conception of architecture.
