DUBAI 3D PRINTING STRATEGY
The value of the 3D printing technology based construction sector in Dubai is expected to be about Dh3 billion by 2025. The use of 3D printing in Dubai’s construction sector will increase by 2% starting 2019 and more in the coming years, depending on the development of the technology and its future reliability.
In the medical products sector, the focus will be on developing 3D printed teeth, bones, artificial organs and medical and surgical devices and hearing aids. The value of 3D printed medical products in Dubai is expected to be reach Dh1.7 billion by 2025.
Reports indicate that 3D printing technology will cut construction costs by between 50% and 70%, and cut labor costs by 50% to 80%. In addition, the technology will help reduce waste produced in construction operations by up to 60%, which will reflect positively on the economic returns of the sector and contribute to sustainable development.
Bashar is currently the chair of the graduate program at the Mechanical Engineering Department and an associate professor of mechanical engineering at Khalifa University. He served as the Associate Chair for the department from 2013-2016. Before that he acted as an academic advisor for the British University in Dubai to develop an accredited industrial engineering program.
He founded a design and development pre-incubator at the JUST University to train and qualify students to become entrepreneurs. He is a member of the Advisory Board of the Innovation Lab at the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and a member of the editorial board of IJAER. His current research is focused on developing new concepts of advanced machining centers based on parallel kinematics mechanism and machining in harsh environments by adapting to the environment/geometry and be able to perform machining/welding tasks.
