3D Printing Shipbuilding

Postby JK » Thu Jul 23, 2015 5:16 am

This just blows me away!
a focus of the innovation center will be on developing cutting-edge shipbuilding and industrial robot manufacturing technologies.

In total, the Ulsan Center aims to localize the production of at least 15 key ship components by the end of 2015 and a total of 165 within the next three years. It is estimated that the localized manufacturing of these parts through additive manufacturing methods will save Korean shipbuilders an average of nearly $2 billion per year.

The "Replicator" of Sci Fi. First the 3D scan then press "Print" and there you are, Chateau Briande Steak with a Chateau Neufe Du Pape. Or a new robot, whatever your preference. I believe you can buy "domestic grade" 3D printers for less than a Laser Printer cost a few years ago, I can seem them replacing the Lathe in ER workshops, just have to get all the drawings from the makers and you could fabricate yourself a complete ship from the comfort of your armchair, maybe.

Like the choice of wine, Pete. :) I wonder how strong and how flexible a "printed" hull would be?

“Ulsan is the industrial capital of Korea, where per capita production and incomes are the nation’s highest, specializing in major heavy industries such as ship building, automotive and petrochemicals,” Park Geun-hye, Korea’s president, said during a congratulatory speech. “However, as Korean heavy industries are challenged by nearby countries’ technological advancements, I hope to see the Ulsan Center contribute to giving new life to existing industry by integrating ICT and making it a next-generation growth engine.”
