GoPrint3D announces conference focused on AM and higher education

Additive Live will be held in Manchester on January 28, 2020

GoPrint3D, a UK-based supplier of 3D printing technologies, is launching a new additive manufacturing conference, Additive Live. The first edition of the event, which is supported by HP, will be held at the end of this month at PrintCity in Manchester Metropolitan University’s Additive Manufacturing lab.

Today, a number of events held around the globe are focused on the additive manufacturing industry. These events range in size and scope: some of the largest, like Formnext, encompass much of the vast industry and bring together companies and players from around the world. Others have a more contained focus, targeting a specific facet of the broad 3D printing sector. Additive Live falls, more or less, into the latter category.

The first edition of the GoPrint3D event will be centered on additive manufacturing in higher education. Within this topic, the conference will host talks discussing the use of color in 3D printing, generative design and more. Notably, the conference will include a preview of HP’s university-level 3D printing curriculum.

Experts attending the event will also highlight some of the fundamentals of setting up an additive manufacturing lab within universities and how to create bridges between academia and industry, specifically with SMEs—something which is proving to be critical for the adoption of AM.

“The idea behind Additive Live is to help delegates learn about the latest AM technologies and best practices, whilst helping them improve their 3D printing skills and develop their professional network,” said David Whitehouse, Marketing Manager of GoPrint3D. ”Our first event in Manchester will be tailored towards Universities and Colleges.”

Edmund Keefe, Senior Lecturer Industrial Digitalisation at PrintCity, added: “PrintCity and Manchester Metropolitan University are thrilled to be hosting this event. As an organisation, PrintCity is constantly looking to collaborate with industry leaders and to incorporate the latest technologies and practices into our teaching and research output.”

The new AM conference has some pretty high-profile backing from HP which will likely generate interest. This support follows HP’s announcement this summer that it was adding GoPrint3D to its list of UK resellers for its Jet Fusion technology.

Maryam Qureshi, Application Specialist 3D printing at HP Inc., stated: “HP is very pleased to be supporting our channel partner GoPrint3D at this inaugural event, and look forward to hearing from the attendees on their future developments for AM and how we can assist them in realizing these plans.”

The first edition of the Additive Live conference will be held on January 28, 2020 at PrintCity at the Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK. Registration for the event is free.
