Could 3D printing eradicate extreme poverty and hunger?
- 783 million people live in poverty . The latest global estimate suggest that 11% of the world population lived below the extreme poverty.
- 9.2 % of world's workers living with their families on less than $1.90 per person per day.

Poverty is a fundamental global concern that directly affects daily lives of individuals and society as whole .3D printing (Additive Manufacturing ) has proven to be a disruptive technology that has demonstrated the ability to expedite the speed of innovation and create products that were previously not possible.
The Idea of E4-3D Engineering for additive manufacturing is to create a trusted and secure online marketplace to sell certified CAD files without the fear of loose IP. It allows aftermarket auto parts manufacturers stores the digital designs in central repository for all parts.
E4-3D Engineering for additive manufacturing will provide certified Consumer-ready product files accessible online to allow a person who is capable of using a 3D printer to print any file that is readily available. Anyone who owned a 3D printer would, in theory, not need prior CAD or product design experience to produce a part. Products will be made to order from an existing stereo lithography (STL) file. The elimination of CAD or product design experience allows people to create new Business and high income around owning and operating a printer. Because the final print quality is important and depends on both the consistency and the quality of the printer. E4-3D Engineering for additive manufacturing offer training on additive manufacturing technologies and post processing quality control.
Why the need of direct auto spare parts production?
How can aftermarket auto parts distribution prevent from stockpiles up to 80% of warehouses with very slow moving parts, that may never be used?
We all have cars and all cars need repairs. Over 60 million cars are produced globally each year. Automotive companies maintain spare parts inventory for all car models for 7-10 years, this leads to very high inventory holding cost or a low item fill rate if the part is out of stock
With 3D printed auto parts online marketplace, 3D printing ‘Factory in a Box’ facilities will be installed in local warehouses and product will be printed on demand. Our solution can create local highly paid local jobs while save over of 90% in the Total Supply Chain costs. This is achieved by virtually eliminating all Inventory Holding Cost and a big reduction in transportation cost
The total global opportunity for aftermarket business is £500 billion , actually 10% of spare part can be designed for additive manufacturing or re engineered and ordered from a digital spare part library
The 3D printed auto parts marketplace is a pay-per-print business model that securely streaming 3D CAD files without the fear of loose IP.
I am Irma Gilbert and I have over 23 years experience in International manufacturing.
I am asking £10K to build the Minimum Viable online platform to distribute and sell the certified and tested digital design files (STL files ) globally.
