Since 2013 the Additive World Conference organized by Dutch SLM system manufacturer Additive Industries has been bringing renown AM experts from around the world together to discuss and share their knowledge, vision and practical experiences on industrial 3D printing.
From March 14 thru March 15, 2018, Additive Industries organizes the 6th edition of the annual Additive World Conference in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. This edition of the Conference will be focused on learning the latest on industrial additive manufacturing from a broad perspective. Experienced users from all stages of the Additive Manufacturing process (design, simulation, production, quality control and post-processing) will come together, providing delegates a complete picture of this emerging technology.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the experts at leading global companies such as Sauber Motorsport AG, the European Space Agency, Deutsche Bahn, K3D, Betatype, Radboudumc 3D Lab and many more. Register before March 9 in order to secure a spot.
The event will also see participation from the finalists of the Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge 2018. In the 4th edition of challenge, both professional designers & engineers and students were encouraged to take an existing part of a machine or product that is made with conventional technologies today and redesign it for 3D printing. Partners in the Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge are leading CAE technology provider (e.g. Topology Optimization) – Altair Engineering, a consumer 3D printer manufacturer – Ultimaker, Autodesk – a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software and European Association of the Machine Tool Industries CECIMO.
The top 3 in both categories will receive a free 1 year licence of Altair’s Inspire software and Netfabb licences. All 6 finalists(teams) will be invited to the Additive World Conference & Additive World Awards Dinner. The winners in both categories take home the Ultimaker 3D printer (professional winner Ultimaker 3 and student winner Ultimaker 2+), 3D printed award and a goodie bag from Autodesk. The award winning designs will be printed in metal. Also the winners will get an opportunity to present during annual Masterclass: Design for Additive Manufacturing, which will be hosted by Additive Industries during Dutch Design Week.
