DIMAPUR — A one-day 3D printing (3DP) workshop for education was organised by the Assam Electronic Development Corporation Limited at Immanuel College, Dimapur, on March 13.

Ira Bhatia, team lead at DIC UIET, Panjab University and Karan Chadha of Consultant Industry 4.0 for North Eastern Region, were the resource persons of the workshop, an update stated.

The workshop was attended by students of Holy Cross Hr. Sec. School, Govt. High School, Nagaland Tool Room and Training Centre, Pranabananda Women’s College, Immanuel College and Christian Hr. Sec. School.

Ira Bhatia elucidated that 3DP is a technology revolution introduced to enhance and develop better equipment with zero waste products in any manufacturing industries and provide ease of living.

It is a boon to aerospace industries, educational institutions, hospitals and even small scale industries. 3DP is an additive manufacturing that enables the production of geometrically complex objects, shapes and textures, she said.

It often uses less material than traditional manufacturing methods and allows the production of items that were simply not possible to produce economically with traditional manufacturing. Its raw material can be anything from plastic to wood to food and even living cells to manufacture the object in any desired shape. The commonly used materials are resins, polymers and metal, the resource person said.

Bhatia also played a short video which threw light on the function of 3DP including use of 3DP in aerospace industry to make parts of jet engines that are lighter and stronger to make airplanes more efficient and use less fuel.

3D printed food has also entered into the kitchen arena with chefs experimenting new culinary dimensions and hospitals to make new body parts to repair fractures and also make organs from cartilage, she said.

She further highlighted that the 3DP project is aligned with PM-DevINE objective and SDG 2030 goals.
