Q1. Summarize, in your own words, what “digital fabrication” is and how it is different from traditional manufacturing tools and technology.
What is a digital fabrication?
Digital fabrication is the process that merges designing, construction and production that come together at one level. In other word, it is the process of translating digital design into physical objects that is tangible. Digital fabrication is going to allow individuals to design and produce tangible object and that can be by using the new technology that appears in last several years, which is the three dimensional printer along with the three dimensional software programs that help them to do their work more easily ...view middle of the document...
How digital fabrication is different from traditional manufacturing tools and technology?
From my perspective of view, digital fabrication will replace the traditional manufacturers tools. The digital fabrication is more useful, flexible and accurate that the traditional manufacturers. Furthermore, the product in traditional manufacturing is required to go through different process and tools that cost the manufacturing time and money while in the digital fabrication, the process of producing products are easier and faster and that help the firms to make their production line more productivity and efficiency. Some traditional manufacturing is slipping to develop a complex product that is hard to achieve by using traditional tools and technology while digital fabrication can help these manufacturing to reach their goals by using the three dimensional printer and software. In addition, in the traditional manufacturing ,the industrial mass-production requires different factories, tools, and technology for every type of product while the flexibility of digital manufacturing has the ability to merge all these factories, tools, and technology of the traditional manufacturing in one tool to make almost any things.
Q2- Do you agree with the author that the digital fabrication represents the “new digital revolution? Why or Why not?
From my point of view, I totally agree with the author that the digital fabrication is revolutionary technology. The digital fabrication will become more fashionable in our day to day life. In addition, the digital fabrication will change the way of thinking in different field starting with firms and ending with consumers. The demand of digital fabrication will increase in the coming few years and it becomes a top priority for most of the companies that will replace their traditional manufacturing to this new technology. The digital fabrication will help many companies to produce high quality product and the rate of error will reduce significantly than the traditional manufacturing. The people how use 3D printer and 3D...
