Video: How is 3D printing revolutionising the manufacturing industry?

From prosthetic body parts to Rolls Royce cars and airplanes, shoes to drones, engagement rings to 400sq foot homes - there's not much in the manufacturing sphere that is out of the technology's reach.

In April 2016, H. H. Sheikh Mohammed launched the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy - the goal of which is to ensure that 25 per cent of buildings in Dubai are based on 3D printing technology by 2030.

The same year, UPS led a $48 million series B funding round for 3D printing startup Fast Radius. While UPS had 3D printing capabilities in more than 60 locations, Fast Radius had software that could aid in design, development and manufacturing of industrial-grade parts.

Today, we look at the potential of 3D printing technologies to revolutionise the manufacturing industry in the latest edition of Arabian Business Enterprise Innovators series, in association with UPS.
