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:
pply 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.
CECIMO, the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries, is the point of reference in the area of metallic based additive manufacturing (AM) vis-à-vis EU policy-makers and contributes to the making of policy and regulations with a view to creating the right framework conditions for the development of metallic based additive manufacturing in the EU.
During the fifth edition of the 3D Printing Event held last week in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and supported by CECIMO, Giorgio Magistrelli, the CECIMO Additive Manufacturing Project Manager presented the newly launched AM Working Group, involving the 15 European national machine tool association members of CECIMO. He also explained the main scope of CECIMO in the AM sector and its participation to related EU projects and worldwide standard bodies such as ATSM F42. Finally, he introduced CECIMO’s strategy to establish an AM knowledge-sharing platform for European machine tool builders.
