3D printing is affecting the way engineers design in the automotive industry. The technology is already used in the industry, currently mostly for plastic and metal spare parts. Additive manufacturing has opened the door for newer designs, safer products, shorter lead times and lower costs. Moreover, it will be an enabler for the automotive industry to adapt towards the new smart mobility requirements.
With 3D printed electronics, even more applications are in
sight. Engineers can now design the electronics to fit a certain part, rather
than designing parts around electronics as before. The design is no longer
limited to flat printed circuit boards, things get three-dimensional. Furthermore,
electronics can be printed using a variety of techniques- inkjet, analog, so
there is a lot of room for innovation.

New GfK research shows that half of people internationally believe smart home technology will make an impact on their lives in the next few years, compared to just a third who say the same for wearables.
The study, which covers seven countries, asked consumers to choose which of 11 leading-edge technologies – from 3D printing to augmented/virtual reality to Internet of Things — would have an impact on their lives in the next few years. (Respondents could choose as many technologies as they wished.) Continue reading “Smart Home Beats Wearables for Impact on Lives, Consumer Survey Shows”
