The Shape of Things to Come with Ben Redwood of 3DHubs (part2)

Macro Micro Michael Marco & Startups at the Edge (M4Edge)

Our show today is part 2 of our interview with Ben Redwood of 3DHubs. Ben is bookend-ing our miniseries on Additive Manufacturing, otherwise known as 3D Printing. In part 1 of our interview with Ben, we spent most of our time discussing many of the different additive manufacturing techniques, which was a great intro to the next set of episodes.  Ben has also written a book about 3D Printing, and M4Edge listeners can get part of that book for free by going to https://www.3dhubs.com/podcast/m4edge/ .  Also on the 3DHubs site, you can check out their really useful trends report about what‘s happening in the industry, by going to https://www.3dhubs.com/get/trends/. In between parts 1 and 2 of the Ben interview, we spoke with 4 fascinating founders of additive manufacturing companies, each with a really amazing technology, each markedly different from the next. They were Greg Mark of MarkForged, Bob Swartz of Impossible Objects, Nanci Hardwick of MELD Manufacturing and Blake Teipel of Essentium.  If you’ve missed those, I encourage you to go back and give em a listen. Today we close the miniseries with Ben and discuss 3DHubs' business model, which is manufacturing as a service, we discuss the 3D Printing industry and its place in the global manufacturing chain, and of course, since Marco can’t help himself, we discuss SciFi.NB: It turns out that if you live outside the US, chances are that Marco and I haven't seen your review. Please let us know if you've written one, so we can give you a shout out on the show - send an email to info@m4edge.com

What is 3D Printing, with Ben Redwood of 3DHubs

Macro Micro Michael Marco & Startups at the Edge (M4Edge)

In our view, 3D Printing - also known as Additive Manufacturing - ranks up there with Artificial Intelligence as one of "those technologies," meaning one of those that truly holds potential for fundamental changes in how the economy functions. To say that 3D Printing represents a new way of building things is like saying that commercial aviation represented a new way of getting places. 3D Printing will change the who, what, where and how of manufacturing. The “when” is starting now.Our interview with Ben Redwood of 3DHubs is split into two parts. In this episode, we use Ben as our technical expert, and he’ll explain to us all the different kinds of additive manufacturing processes that exist, go over some technical terms, and talk to us about the industry in general. It’s a bit technical at first, but there are two rewards for listening through to the end of the episode. First: Ben’s written a book on 3DPrinting, two chapters of which are being made available for free, to you. Second: later in the episode Ben reveals insights from their latest Future Trends report, which is also available for free, and we dive into a discussion of how 3D printing will change everyone’s life. In part two of the interview, which we’ll air in a few weeks, we’ll talk to Ben about 3D Hubs, where he’s the Director of Supply Chain. In between, we’re going to hear from the founders of 4 of the most interesting and promising 3D Printing startups out there, including Greg Mark of Markforged, Nanci Hardwick of MELD Manufacturing, Bob Swartz of Impossible Objects, and Blake Teipel of Essentium.

S1E3 - Ben Redwood: 3D Hubs & Automated Manufacturing

The Edge

~Plus Jordan Husney on working with GE and running a 3D Hub~If you owned a 3D printer back in 2013, you probably remember hearing about 3D Hubs for the first time. Desktop 3D printing was still in its early days, and a community of people were coming together on their site to share knowledge and experiences while building out a distributed manufacturing network. And, as we’ll hear in this episode, it worked. Fast forward to today, and 3D Hubs describes themselves as the “world’s largest manufacturing network.” Today they offer not just 3D printing services, but CNC and injection molding as well. We caught up with the Director of Supply Chain at 3D Hubs, Ben Redwood, to learn about some of the recent transitions the company has gone through and what it means to automate human interactions in manufacturing.Links and show notes at bantamtools.com/theedge
