3D Printing does have negative disadvantages and far-too-often these get overlooked because of the plethora of benefits and revolutionizing aspects of additive manufacturing across virtually all industries. In this video, we aim to educate you on some of the limitations and downsides attributed to this technology.
Topics discussed include:
Labor: Many lower income manufacturing jobs that are especially relied upon in third world countries will be rendered obsolete by additive manufacturing.
Weapons: It has been proven that both guns and bomb parts can effectively be created using this technology and the implications of digital blueprints for these weapons being disseminated to millions through open-source platforms is troubling. This being an international issue and the topic of plastic weapons having the ability to bypass metal detectors is also explored.
Unhealthy Air Emissions: The melting of material during the creation process releases very small particles and volatile organic compounds into the air. The health consequences along with some helpful measures to avoid this issue are discussed.
Learning Curve: We dive into the difficulty level and common problems associated with this technology that is preventing it from being a common household item which families can rely on for printing necessities. The 3D Printing workflow process challenges are mentioned.
Intellectual Property Theft: Infringement on design patents, trademarks, and creative commons licenses is highlighted and the risk posed to original designers and businesses that rely on original designs is discussed.
