educe, reuse, recycle. The three Rs of green
were first coined sometime in the 1970s. We've
all heard the terms but they all deliver different
types and levels of benefits in general and
especially in 3D printing or additive manufacturing
(AM). And now that AM is making the transition
into mass production applications, it's a good time to
review how it delivers on these benefits and important
changes coming from standards-issuing bodies and
other organizations, such as the Additive Manufacturer
Green Trade Association (AMGTA), to clarify and quantify
these benefits.

als, it means things such as turning off the lights in
unused rooms, taking a shorter shower, or setting the
heater to 66 ˚F.
In manufacturing, this could mean using less material
to deliver a given geometry, using less energy to create a
part, or using less labor for the full execution of a manufacturing
process. Shortening the distance from supplier
to producer or producer to customer with localized
or decentralized manufacturing strategies also
counts.
With modern engineering tools and computer-aided
manufacturing, product development cycles can consume
less time and money than physical prototyping.
We can use more digital twins, digital analysis, and digital
simulation. We can consume fewer real resources
and more virtual ones.
