The CPA Innovation Centre presents Simon Ford, Beedie Family visiting Fellow and Visiting Associate Professor at Simon Fraser University for the 2016-17 academic year, and a Senior Research Associate at the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge. 3D printing (also known in professional circles as “additive manufacturing”) is transforming the industrial landscape, changing where and how manufacturing is taking place. From the high-end metal additive manufacturing technologies that are being used in aerospace, to the types of lower-end consumer 3D printers that have been launched on crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter, 3D printing is making it possible for new applications to be developed, new markets to be entered, and new customers to be served. In this seminar, Simon discusses how 3D printing is changing the manufacturing system, the sustainability and entrepreneurship opportunities that 3D printing is creating, and the educational needs that must be addressed if its potential is to be fully realised.
