At this point 3D printing offers specialists opportunity in... New Types of Business

Bespoke Manufacture

Professional Services

Repair

3D print shops and kitting possibilities as well as online printing services including customisation and file distribution

In terms of model making and other presentation and prototyping which requires Three Dimensions

A whole new range of manufacturing possibilities which can be achieved easily on a personal level

Improved personal repair and maintenance possibilities, including printing out new parts for a 3D printer

Where could it go? New DIY

When things are being built or manufactured new ways of connecting could be established

Household

Common household objects could be printed instead of bought.

Custom Helpers

Creative Expression

Workshops

Fashion

Amazon 2.0

Children’s Rooms

Custom built objects where physical design can help people suffering from an illness.

Fashionable objects such as accessories could be printed and reused instead of quickly become fashionably obsolete

Sculpture and other objects could easily be transformed from the digital into the physical.

A higher level of customisation could be achieved in a huge range of consumer goods

Inside a variety of sheds or workshops could offer of a variety of uses depending on the communities needs

Children could begin to develop their own toys or download a file of one that they like.

Outcomes

Develop Filament Extruder

Turn Extruder Into a Kit

Explore Future Growth in Melbourne

Explore Future Scenarios of 3D Printing

Come up with a way that filament can be extruded from reused objects. Making it a streamlined process where it blends, melts and extrudes. Accompanying guides could be developed for others to use.

Develop a business plan and provide a new kind of print service within Melbourne. You could even be the Australian supplier of printing kits and supplies

Once extruder is developed release the plan as open source and make it available as a kit. This could then be tied in within a business plan.

Focusing on propositional scenarios involving 3D printing in the future. This would be delivered in written form.
