How Valuable is 3D Printing? The Positive Impacts of Additive Manufacturing on Society and Engineering
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Additive manufacturing, or ‘3D printing’ is a rapid prototyping technique which is having a profound impact on traditional manufacturing. In this talk, Nicholas will enlighten students to the social impact of additive manufacturing and the challenges it has brought forward in the workflow of mechanical design and manufacturing. He will review the benefits of this rapid prototyping technique and the disruption it has brought upon traditional manufacturing techniques. Students will be introduced to various case studies that illustrate the positive impact that additive manufacturing is having on society and economics. By the end of this talk, students will have a better understanding of additive manufacturing and its value in society.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Dr Nicholas Tse received his Bachelor of Science degree in nanotechnology from UNSW and his PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Melbourne. In his doctoral research, he has applied his knowledge of inorganic chemistry and interest in nanotechnology for the development of novel magnetic resonance imaging contrast agents. Since then, he has joined Macquarie University as a post-doctoral research fellow, developing novel hydrogen fuel cell catalysts. He is currently an associate lecturer in the department of engineering teaching introductory courses, which include a 2nd year subject; Introduction to Materials Engineering.
