"We are producing metals parts for companies at up to 90 per cent cheaper than the current process of producing and delivering them, in many cases saving weeks in waiting for replacement parts through traditional supply chains," CEO David Budge said.

"It is our expectation that Aurora's industry grade, high speed, large format printers will be positioned across the world, particularly in remote areas, so that both large and small companies can replace broken parts with brand new ones created on-site or nearby."

"At some stage in the next two to five years, its my belief, and I believe it is Worley Parsons' belief as well, companies are going to wake up and go 'oh, my goodness I can save somewhere between 10 per cent and 90 per cent on the cost of a part by printing it so why haven't I converted all my inventory into a digital inventory that I can print'," .

Mr Budge said it was in talks with a major miner and processor chewing through $700 million a year in parts and maintenance that wanted the capacity to print its entire plant in-house. While another potential customer just wanted a digital inventory so it could click on a part and have it turn up within days.

The minefield for Aurora and other 3D printers is how to get parts certified so they don't become giant paperweights. Mr Budge said it was trying to keep original equipment manufacturers, the companies that make and supply machinery and plant in the first place, onside by building a digital rights management and certification process into its systems.

"It gives them direct recourse for enforcing any intellectual property rights that they have," he said. "The other bonus for them is that it effectively allows them to potentially sell products all over the world when they may have had a limited market previously."

Company may well of been thought of as smoke and mirrors once before but it looks like Budge has hit the motherlode equivalent of metal 3D printing! devilsmiley.gif

application of Aurora’s Rapid Manufacturing Technology (RMT) in the mining
industry. The venture could progress to Aurora potentially developing
technology or processes that may reduce production and operation costs in
the mining and resources sectors.

Speaking of tax rebates/R&D, I've noticed a couple of companies being reviewed by ATO re their R&D claims going back to 2015. KNL is one, and their claims don't appear excessive - circa $1m/yr. The article below suggests max of $4m for companies with a t/o of $20m or less. A3D should fall into that category, but then KNL also does - they have zero revenue.

Uncertainty over research tax incentives reigns as scheme tightened

The legislation currently before the House of Representatives makes a number of key changes that affect how much companies can claim and how their research spending is scrutinised.

For companies with turnover of $20 million or less, it caps the cash refunds available for research and development at $4 million. It also changes the tax offset rate for these companies from a flat 43.5 per cent to their corporate tax rate, plus 13.5 per cent.

Prior to this businesses with turnover of $20 million or less could apply for an unrestricted cash refund of 43.5 cents for every dollar spent on research and development activities.
