Course Objectives
Excitement around 3D printing continues full speed ahead whether in electronics, consumer goods or industrial systems. Understanding the capabilities, limitations and most importantly the complexities of 3d printing remains challenging despite significant progress in both equipment and materials. This tutorial on 3D printing introduces the application of 3D printing in and around the world of electronics, whether for prototyping, pilot production or manufacturing.

Beginning with a review of the history of 3D printing/additive manufacturing the tutorial delves into the techniques, materials, equipment and processes for 3-dimensional manufacturing as well as design tools. Continuing with analysis of capabilities and limitations, the tutorial demonstrates the power of additive manufacturing in its roles from prototyping and product development to mass customization and even its role in digital health and human welfare. Specific examples include batteries, shielding, high density capacitors, and simple circuits. Discussion also includes applications outside the electronics world to stimulate creative thought, e.g. jet engine turbines and hyperbolic airfoils.

The tutorial concludes with a review of specific market opportunities and current applications areas showing the greatest promise and growth.
