According to Ben Carroll, Minister for Industry and Employment,“3D printing is a game changer for manufacturing – which is why we’re backing the technology so more local companies can reap the benefits. This new hub will help local manufacturers innovate, become more productive and excel in future industries. Victoria’s manufacturing industry contributes $27.7 billion to the Victorian economy, with over 13,000 businesses employing more than 283,000 people. It also exported $18.16 billion of manufactured goods in 2016-17″.
Minister for Industry and Employment Ben Carroll today joined Member for Carrum Sonya Kilkenny at Objective 3D to announce the new Additive Manufacturing Hub – supported by $2 million from the Andrews Labor Government.
According to Jenna, “she created a 3D-printed ballet shoe that gives comfort to the dancers.
The project is the design of ballet pointed shoes via 3D printing and scanning technologies. Ballet shoe design has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. But we now have technology that allows us to address the customization and fit issues that cause toe deformation and injury”.
We all love to have unique things. It is human nature.
When we visited Europe, I bought the Swiss watch at the Geneva airport.
The watch had the unique color. I never ever find that watch here in the USA before.
Recently when I was shopping at the mall. I visited Swiss watch store. I love shopping. You know what did I found. The same watch I bought at the airport. I can’t believe it.
Some people who were working for the store told me this is only for Geneva.
It is fine. We can get 3D printed watch, any color, any style:)
According to Bellouard and TAG Heuer Chief Executive Officer Jean-Claude Biver says”A personalized watch—a certain type of watch for one single person—would certainly be added value, and people would buy it for that, so the price could go up. Simplified manufacturing by reducing the number of components could also make it cheaper in certain aspects of transition is still in the beginning stages. Customers are increasingly looking for bespoke and unique pieces.”
