Explore all aspects of the success of 3D printing

The wide variety of topics around 3D printing, content and design has made the 3D Printing Event to a big success. Companies like Autodesk, Sketchfab, ASML, Berenschot and CECIMO succeeded to inspire the international attendees with their enthralling presentations, in which different views and technologies were introduced. The lively workshop of Berenschot, and Additive Industries’ masterclass gave new insights in different markets.

Throughout the two days, the attendees were actively networking around the exhibition, where a.o. Materialise, Super Tangible and Felix Printers had decorated their stand. We can look back on an event full of innovation, inspiration and networking!

After four successful events in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and Madrid, Spain, the fifth edition of the 3D Printing Event took place in Eindhoven, during the Dutch Design Week. The international event gave insights in the rapidly developing 3D printing market, in new technologies and in how other businesses apply these new opportunities. This last edition consisted of an exhibition area with professionals and start-ups, plus 4 half day programs:

Seminar: 3D Design Software, crucial for engineers & designers: This seminar will focus on how engineers & designers will have to change their ‘traditional’ thinking in order to create optimal 3D designs and how 3D software tools can support that.

Seminar: Challenges in Business, Regulation and Law: Regulatory issues are becoming more and more of a pressing concern for companies and experts involved with 3D printing and additive manufacturing. How will this affect the industry and what does it mean for the business opportunities and challenges?

Workshop: Successful Business Models for 3D Printing: By showing and discussing a large number of cases, participants will get insights on do’s, don’ts and lessons learned from the most successful 3D printing users at this moment in time.

Master Class: Design for Additive Manufacturing: This Additive World Master Class organised by Additive Industries & AddLab in close collaboration with Jakajima aims to offer an overview of all aspects of Design for Additive Manufacturing: drivers, design rules, dedicated designs, material selection and results.
