Why 3D Printing?

Every day, prototypes are used to perfect the designs of injection molded parts. This simple, fast and affordable measure protects companies from costly production delays, tooling rework and design flaws. "It has been estimated that costs $1.00 to fix in the design phase costs $1,000.00 to rectify once manufacturing begins and $1 Million once the product is launched” *

* Donald Reinertsen: - Developing Products in Half the time

In a recent survey conducted it was discovered in just over a year, the number of companies utilizing 3D printing as well as the variety of applications rocketed dramatically; the percentage of companies using additive to manufacture production parts rose from 27% to 52%, bridge production increased from 23% to 39%, and repair went from 14% to 38%. Although the 3D printing industry is currently worth around $9.3 billion, a report by Smithers Pira predicts that the additive manufacturing industry will be worth $55.8 billion by 2027.


3DP is used early in the product development process tools such as rapid prototyping to

        Validate performance

        Avoid rework

        Protect investments 

        Preserve schedules.

These days 3D Printing is no longer used just as prototyping, but is used for Direct manufacturing because of the following advantages:

        Fewer components for complex geometries

        Lightweight materials

        Science and technology advancing materials management

Therefore it is increasingly becoming important to get to know the evolution of this technology, it’s applications and usage with actual knowledge where one can apply 3D printing for Manufacturing.

The exclusive MMA 2 day workshop is aimed at enabling its members and student members to get up to speed with 3D Printing Technologies, learn current trends, have some practical hands on sessions to know how 3D parts can be easily produced and what parameters determine the accuracy of the part and so on...

Hands-on Sessions will show how a model can be made printable through the application and made ready for 3D printing.



The future of 3D printing is bright and is an increasingly important pillar in the manufacturing renaissance. With the increased usage of the technology, there are growing numbers of use-cases and demonstrable business benefits proving that additive can be used as a mainstream manufacturing technology. What can be done with 3D printing isn’t theoretical anymore; it’s a fact.

Several industries including healthcare, automotive and aerospace and defense have been experiencing impactful production and business transformations within key areas of their business given the maturation of additive technologies and material supply-chains. For instance, interior aircraft parts like ducting, vents and airflow systems created with additive manufacturing permit designers to trim weight, reduce the number of components in assemblies, and conform to tight cabin interiors. In addition, additive manufacturing provides design freedom to experiment with more effective and efficient part shapes, with fewer potential points of failure. These give manufacturers more flexibility in creating their products all while keeping pace with contracting production cycles.
