Published by 3dpbm, 3D Printing Media Network is a trusted independent resource for additive manufacturing industry news, information and market insights.
Our editors have nearly two decades of combined experience covering the additive manufacturing industry and are familiar with all major companies, technologies, materials and applications. We believe that additive manufacturing—in its many forms—is the future of all production and represents the clearest path toward a more sustainable future.
As a trade publication for the 21st century, 3D Printing Media Network is 100% digital. We believe that the AM industry represents the purest digitalization of manufacturing and, as such, it cannot rely on traditional analogue media formats.
Every day, we bring our readers relevant, accurate news and announcements from AM industry stakeholders and operators around the world. We do this through our large AM network, which includes over 5,000 AM companies listed in our 3D Printing Business Directory, the largest global directory of verified 3D printing companies. All of this means that our readers, whether they are professional adopters or newcomers to AM, can rely on us for the industry’s latest innovations and trends.
Our reach is global. We have collaborators and partners in all seven continents (yes, currently even in Antarctica). Our editors and core team members are based both in Europe and North America so that we can cover a range of time zones with our reporting. We work directly with companies in the US, EMEA and APAC. We see the AM industry as both the most global and the most local manufacturing.
How to read 3D Printing Media Network
3D Printing Media Network is a massive website and it may feel overwhelming at first. However, once you understand where to find what matters most to you, you’ll find it an invaluable tool to support your business in AM.
3D Printing Media Network’s homepage is divided into six main sections. At the top, you’ll find Featured content. This is either exclusive, highly relevant content that has been produced by 3dpbm or high-profile sponsored content produced in collaboration with leading AM companies.
Below you’ll find the Must Read section, where we post all the most important news and announcements from AM companies.
Under that, you’ll find the Insights and Future sections. Insights is where we publish all the immediately relevant AM industry news, such as distribution deals and partnerships, new product launches, acquisitions and funding. In the Future section, we post all announcements that have medium- to long-term implications, including interesting research on new materials and processes, futuristic concepts and content related to consumer adoption (which, however, is increasingly moving towards the Insights section).
About halfway down, you’ll find our AM Focus section. Each month, we zoom in on a specific AM vertical, giving our readers the unique opportunity to find what matters to them and gain valuable insights within a defined and focused context. This includes exclusive and original stories, analyses and interviews on each specific topic. At the end of each month, the best content, as well as more exclusive content, is collected in an AM Focus 2020 eBook, which can be downloaded or viewed online in the relevant section.
Last—but not least—is our Latest News feed. This is where you’ll find every story we publish in chronological order.
Throughout our AM Focus 2020 series, we are spotlighting leading subsegments of the additive manufacturing industry. Each AM Focus addresses a specific area of additive, covering important technical advancements, market trends and industry announcements to provide our readers with a unique and comprehensive perspective.
If your company or research institute has activities relevant to our upcoming AM Focus 2020 segments, please submit relevant news, announcements or activities, which we will consider for publication.
For companies and organizations looking to amplify their message in these areas, we also have a number of sponsorship opportunities available.
Throughout the month, our editors gather the latest and most important news on 3D Printing Media Network. At the end of each month, these exclusive and original articles are collected into these easy-access eBooks.
In each eBook you will gain key insights:
- Exclusive market analyses and forecasts on business potential
- A map with detailed information on key segment stakeholders
- Exclusive interviews with adopters and AM industry operators for each vertical
- Original and exclusive segment-specific case studies
- Unique product features and reviews
The eBooks can be viewed online or downloaded as a PDF absolutely free.
Carefully curated by our Editor-in-Chief, our weekly newsletter contains the best content from the week including the latest industry news, market analyses & forecasts and exclusive interviews. We don’t do spam: we only send a few, highly relevant newsletters a week, as we realize that you already get way too many emails and we don’t want you to miss the additive insights that matter.
3D Printing Media Network’s articles are assigned to nearly 100 different categories. Using the easy-access menu in the sidebar you can directly access a specific category. Here you will find all articles on the specific topics that are relevant to you.
