Formatted Contents Note: Part I: Economies of 3D Printing - Reorganizing Manufacturing -- Part II: Communities of 3D Printing - Makers, Entrepreneurs, Outlaws -- Part III: Futures of 3D Printing - Trajectories and Applications.
Summary: This book identifies, analyzes and discusses the current trends of digitalized, decentralized, and networked physical value creation by focusing on the particular example of 3D printing. In addition to evaluating 3D printing's disruptive potentials against a broader economic background, it also addresses the technology's potential impacts on sustainability and emerging modes of bottom-up and community-based innovation. Emphasizing these topics from economic, technical, social and environmental perspectives, the book offers a multifaceted overview that scrutinizes the scenario of a fundamental transition: from a centralized to a far more decentralized system of value creation. .
