Dubai can turn it into a quarter of its structures via 3D printing technology under a new initiative announced on Wednesday to manufacture the emirate a hub for the technology.
UAE Vice President and and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said the emirate’s ‘3D printing strategy’ was part of plans to complete global leadership in next technologys.
“The UAE is presenting to the world nowadays the initially integrated and comprehensive strategy to exploit 3D technology to assist humanity. We have in addition framed practical plans and exact goals to turn the strategy into reality, the reality which can offer to the progress and prosperity of the world and assist preassist our human heritage,” he said.
“Our key goal is to ensure which 25 per cent of turn it intoings in Dubai are based on 3D printing technology by 2030, and we can raise this percentage with the createment of global technology as well as growth of market demand.”

Sheikh Mohammed introduced which the technology may turn it into economic value and benefits worth billions of dollars. Reductions in createion times to 10 per cent of nowadays’s levels and less reliance on unskilled labour may cut costs and reduce the environmental impact, he said.
The Dubai ruler called for government agencies, private sector companies, universities and research centres to establish a universal version for the technology in the UAE.
Dubai’s 3D printing strategy
The emirate’s 3D printing strategy can cover createion, medical products and consumer products with key focus areas in every sector.
In the turn it intoing sector, 3D printing of lights, bases, foundations, joints, facilities, parks, homes, galleries and stores is expected to see the value of the sector revery Dhs 3bn in Dubai by 2025, according to say news agency WAM. Use of 3D printing in the createion sector is expected to increase by 2 per cent of 2019 and additional in the coming years depending on the createment of technology.
For medical products, 3D printed teeth, bones, organs, devices and hearing aids are projected to see the sector revery Dhs 1.7bn in value in Dubai by 2025, while consumer products like household items, jewellery, games and swift food may see the sector revery Dhs 2.8bn.
The 3D printing strategy consists of five main pillars: infrastructure, legislative structure, funding, ability and market demand.
The infrastructure pillar can focus on providing the right infrastructure and assist for research and createment to attract the world’s biggest companies in the field.
On the legislative side, it can focus on createing a regulatory framework for the technology and specifications for materials allowed during the printing system.
For ability, the emirate can channel its efforts into turn it intoing local expertise in research, create and technology and encourage the most minds in the field to come to Dubai.
In terms of funding, the emirate can appear for financing alternatives and investment assist to create the technology and expand its scope and application. Whilst under the market demand pillar it can promote the use of the technology, promote competitive pricing and maintain high end standards.
The 3D printing strategy forms part of the Future Cities Programme to manufacture Dubai a regional leader.
The initiative can be assisted by different types of government departments and companies and can start with a study of the sector to assist establish registration, qualification, licensing and implementation systemes.
This can be followed by a qualification phase to create codes for materials, systems, specifications and maintenance along with measures to educate engineers and companies and the establishment of labs for testing.
Following this, an implementation phase can see Dubai Holding commence a pilot project createed to inspire createers to work on other prototypes, while the private sector can be encouraged to adopt 3D printing methods.
Finally in the createment phase, assessment and performance indicators can be utilized to turn it into the sector, draft work agreements and facilitate 3D printing.
Dubai Health Authority can facilitate the strategy in the medical products sector and Dubai Holding can turn it into a lab to enhance 3D printing technology and create, with workshops and training courses.
Dubai Holding can in addition establish a special fund for 3D printing and a global forum in the emirate for 3D printing technologies is in addition planned.
Dubai previously announced plans to create the world’s initially 3D printed turn it intoing as an initiative of its Museum of the Future

The office can be of 2,000 square feet in dimensions and printed lay-by-layer via a 20-foot tall 3D printing device assembled on site in Dubai in a few weeks.

The 3D printing market is expected to be worth $120bn by 2020 and of $300bn by 2025, WAM reported.
Current projections suggest the technology can cut createion costs by 50 to 70 per cent and labour costs by 50 to 80 per cent, while reducing waste in createion by 60 per cent.
