The AMGTA promotes the environmental benefits of additive manufacturing (AM) over traditional methods of manufacturing.
Mighty Buildings wants to change the construction industry with prefabricated houses 3D printed on demand from thermoset polymer composite. Two such buildings have already been installed.
These 3D printed flip-flops are an example of mass customization, but they also hint at manufacturing's more sustainable, circular future. Find out why in this episode of The Cool Parts Show.
3D printing helps to simplify both manufacturing of a product and material recapture at the end of its usable life. The key is having a plan at the beginning. More in this video, the last in our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
3D printing makes possible new and different consumer goods, but also changes the buyer's relationship to those goods. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
3D printing can support the circular economy by offering an alternative to centralized mass production. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
Workflow efficiencies and sustainability goals can be achieved together. An automated cleaning system and longer-lasting detergent allowed one manufacturer to reduce hazards, costs and time in its resin removal process.
The circular economy needs the lightweight, optimized and efficient designs that only 3D printing can provide. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
Part of our 3D Printing and the Circular Economy series, this video explores the ways that AM supports more sustainable material choices.
