HP 3D Printing Roundtable
HP-NTU Digital Manufacturing Corporate Lab (HP-NTU Corporate Lab) and HP Inc (Singapore) joined forces with GAIN to host a roundtable to share how 3D printing is used to drive innovation and business growth. With an increasing number of 3D printing applications in the manufacturing sector, many of our industry partner organisations are exploring new business models and opportunities with 3D Printing technology. Delving into the current state of 3D printing across a range of industries and showcasing the use cases across sectors relevant to your businesses.
|To start off the roundtable workshop, Mitchell Beness (Product Manager Lead of 3D Print and Digital Manufacturing, HP Inc.) gave everyone a brief introduction into 3D Printing. Exploring the history of 3D Printing and its development across the years, the versality of 3D Printing has allowed it to become an integral part of innovation and design. Pushing the boundaries of its applications across a multitude of industries. With the rising trend of 3D printing applications, more companies nowadays have begun to research more on the possibilities of 3D Printing technology in their own business innovation.|
|In order for the participants to effectively explore 3D Printing opportunities for their own companies, Mitchell introduced the framework of innovation design to delve deeper into their problem statements. Participants were personally guided by Mitchell, Richard Ng (SMARC Manager and Innovation Lead of Supplies Operations, HP Inc.), NTU professors who specialise in 3D Printing, and 3D Printing Experts from NTU's Singapore Centre for 3D Printing (SC3DP) research institute for an in-depth discussion on 3D Printing Technology in innovative solutions. The roundtables proved to be conducive, with participants from different companies working together to brainstorm new ideas and provide fresh perspectives on challenging problems.|
|At the end of the discussions, participants had the chance to share their problem statements and 3D Printing solutions; gathering constructive feedback and novel points of view on how to further explore 3D Printing for creative problem-solving. Participants had a chance to hear from 3D Printing experts and gain valuable insights from the roundtable sharing. Challenging them to think outside the box and push the boundaries of 3D Printing applications. By the end of the event, many participants were eager to continue the discussions with GAIN, HP-NTU Corporate Lab and SC3DP to explore possible collaborations on 3D Printing Technology, making the event a resounding success!|
