The global 3D printing market is growing rapidly and is set to reach $22 billion by the year 2022. But is 3D printing always a good idea? Will we one day only use 3D printing technologies to produce all the items that we need?

This webinar will describe the key benefits of 3D printing technologies, including the almost unlimited design freedom that it affords. It will also describe how this freedom is bringing computer science closer to the world of design, and how we are using this to design things that were never thought possible.

This talk will also highlight some of the major challenges surrounding cost, sustainability and the trustworthiness associated with 3D printed components in critical applications.


Joseph Flynn is a Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bath.
