Additive Manufacturing Technology and Smart Packaging

"The current state of AM technology does not appear to be able to overcome the hurdles that exist at the intersection of smart packaging and RFID. But, the Industrial Revolution occurred over 60 to 80 years, so industry may just have to wait to see if AM is truly the next revolution, and if it can conquer the challenges such as those presented with printing RFID."

Susanne Kahle's curator insight, June 27, 2013 9:56 AM

Interesting article regarding several aspects of 3D Manufacturing/3D Printing technology (Speed, Material, Costs) - especially an incoming more or less "seamless" integration of RFIDs within the production process adds a lot of potential. 

Beth Robinson's curator insight, June 28, 2013 6:32 PM

Great article evaluating whether the current 3-d printing tech is sufficient to carry out what sounds like a neat idea to solve an existing problem in adopting a different leading-edge technology The answer is no, but the thought process is worth reading.

RFID has so many applications that can save lives.

3-D Printer Hack Produces Eye-Popping Color

3-D Printer Hack Produces Eye-Popping Color | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

"When the MakerBot Replicator was introduced at CES earlier this year, its main selling point was the ability to print in two colors. While impressive, remember "two color" is just another way of saying, black and white.

 

Richard Horne, an electrical engineer and 3-D printing enthusiast, wasn’t happy with that limitation. He wanted to print in color, hundreds of them, even. So, he got to work modifying his RepRap to dynamically generate new hues. Finding a no more fitting name than his own, he dubbed his printer hack the “Rich Rap.”

Rapid Manufacturing and Prototyping with Concrete

Rapid Manufacturing and Prototyping with Concrete | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

"Earthscrapers is an installation for the 2010 Biennial of the Americas that imagines the potential of employing Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) processes in the construction of a proto-architectural landscape—one where the building material source and the building itself are seamless. It also demonstrates the internal design, research and experimentation process by Rael San Fratello Architects in hacking a 3D printer to rapid proto­type and rapid manufacture clays, ceramics and ultimately cement."
