3D Printing in India
August 14, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Three Dimensional Printing (3D Printing) or Additive Manufacturing is additive process by which the object is created a layer by layer deposition of material. 3D Printing is rarely used by industries in India due to lack of awareness. Mostly used to minimize the cost of prototyping and produce functional model at a lower quantity. Customized manufacturing is the next big thing in developing markets like India. Few startups are working towards building low-cost 3D Printers for Small Medium Enterprises (SME’s). Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D Printers are popularly used by SME’s across India. The government of India is also working closely with 200+ Schools & Universities to set up ATAL Tinkering Labs with Financial support. Lack of awareness seems to be a major challenge in developing countries like India. This talk will address the steps taken by communities in improving the awareness and address the importance of 3D Printing in India under various fields such as Medical, Jewellery, Engineering etc.
