3D printing and the bottom billion

  1. 1. 3D printing for humanitarian aid @FldRdy www.fieldready.org @LaurieJ laura.james@fieldready.org
  2. 2. 60% to 80% of aid income procurement, international and local transport, warehousing, distribution, associated activities e.g. information management $10bn – $15bn per year Tatham, P.H., and Pettit, S.J. (2010), “Transforming humanitarian logistics: the journey to supply network management”, International Journal of Physical Distribution and Logistics Management, Vol. 40 No. 8/9, pp. 609-622.
  3. 3. Nimble Manufacturing Hyper-local manufacturing 3D printing (&more)
  4. 4. Key finding from Haiti: We can make useful things in the field
  5. 5. Umbilical Cord Clamps • Cost off the shelf in China $0.1 • Cost off the shelf in Haiti $1 • Cost of printing & electricity for a clamp is $0.2 • Cost of labour for printing is $0.4 • Total cost is $0.6 40% cheaper without a supply chain when made in the field (this cost will come down)
  6. 6. Innovation spaces in the field allow for close, rapid user engagement
  7. 7. Innovation spaces in the field can help to build responses on local capacities
  8. 8. Learning / challenges from Haiti • 3d printers aren’t enough: need richer remote manufacturing setup – And robust power • Need training – and a design mindset to find new solutions • Plastic recycling is possible but not good enough yet • Quality & testing is important
  9. 9. More recently in Nepal
  10. 10. 3D design is hard
  11. 11. Crisis mapping
  12. 12. 3D Printing Trends May 2015
  13. 13. Humanitarian Makers www.humanitarianmakers.net
  14. 14. Humanitarian Hackathons! Makerspaces saving lives! FabLabs in the field! Peer to peer connections between maker spaces around the world
  15. 15. Learning / challenges from Nepal • Customs argh • Local skills • Global design support works! – It’s not always 3DP
  16. 16. Innovation spaces in the field Enabling open innovation Mobilising innovators around the world Working in partnership Respecting communities and collaborating
  17. 17. Next steps • More field trials & proof of concepts! • More manufacturing technologies – Injection moulding – Metal parts – … • Build global humanitarian maker community • Work up design catalogue – open hardware! • Power solutions • The Remote Manufacturing Unit
  18. 18. Inspiration: ideas-box.org
  19. 19. Remote manufacturing units – deployable makerspaces Humanitarian Makers Platform for field innovation Exponential technology
