In a byline in Ingeniøren, PA explains the potential that 3D print technology holds for the Danish economy. PA speaks of a third industrial revolution, made possible by digital design and 3D printers.

PA writes: “This means that smaller companies, entrepreneurs and consumers are given the chance to realise their ideas in the digital world and to make physical products […] This means that design, development and production in particular doesn’t need to take place in lower-paid countries outside Denmark, but can happen locally.”

PA goes on to argue that the sustainable nature of 3D printing – which makes it possible to reuse materials – also creates fertile ground for new local workplaces.

“The Danish government should consider whether to let the newly approved innovation strategy embrace new production methods such as 3D print […]. Also, the government should consider how to create the best framework for recycling materials locally,” says PA.

Finally, PA encourages Danish companies working with 3D print to involve consumers in the design process: “There is still a long way to go, but if we start realising the potential of new innovation platforms such as 3D print technology, and adjust to it, we may face a new industrial revolution that will ensure the future of Danish production and workplaces."
