Improving 3D Printing

This project has a three-fold aim:

  1. Develop a low-cost 3D printer that is affordable enough for individual households and low income economies.
  2. Make 3D printing more efficient by leveraging modern information techniques to create failure detection mechanisms that can enable the implementation of an automatic ‘pause, learn, restart and improve’ feature.
  3. Make 3D printing more accessible by creating a lightweight cloud printing system that could enable remote printing and monitoring of 3D products.

Success in this project can have a significant positive impact in under resourced economies as it will minimise waste, reduce reliance on costly distribution channels, and facilitate a much quicker way to propagate good solutions across different regions.
