Publisher: Connecticut Business and Industry Association

This course component, provided by the Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing (RCNGM), contains valuable information and reference material on 3d (three-dimensional) printing. On this page, users will gain an overview of the role of innovation and 3d printing in current industry applications. "While the first industrial revolution was driven by big companies in factories filled with large machines, this one is being driven by individuals armed with Internet connected computers and 3D desktop printers in their office or garage. The previous revolution relied on large numbers of workers with the physical strength needed to work long hours and operate large machines. The new revolution requires innovative thinkers who use computers creatively to design products while working collaboratively and remotely via the Internet. Access the materials and resources presented in this topic to learn more about the "New Industrial Revolution"." Here, viewers will find a TED Talks video, as well as a list of resources on the topic. Users must create a free login before viewing this resource.
