Join Us at the 3DoP Community Kick-off Event at Formnext 2023

Are you ready to embark on a journey of innovation and investment in the world of Additive Manufacturing (AM)? The 3DoP (3D Printing optimised Production) project is set to revolutionise the AM landscape, and we invite you to be a part of this exciting endeavour. With a unique approach to addressing bottlenecks and fostering innovation, 3DoP is a collaborative effort between 33 small and medium-sized companies and knowledge institutes from across Europe. The mission is clear: to accelerate market uptake and increase global competitiveness in the field of AM.

As we gear up for Formnext 2023, the largest trade fair and conference dedicated to Additive Manufacturing and industrial 3D printing, we extend a warm invitation to you, the valued members of the AM community and beyond. This is your opportunity to join us at the 3DoP community kick-off event and witness firsthand the future of AM and the innovative investment projects driving change.

About 3DoP: Breaking Barriers in AM

The 3DoP project is not your average AM initiative. It stands out by implementing investment projects that target identified bottlenecks in various critical areas. Instead of taking a one-size-fits-all approach, 3DoP relies on a concept of ‘packages of investment projects,’ spanning across different work packages (WP2 to WP5). These packages are the engines that drive change and create investment opportunities to support regional ecosystems.

Key Components of the 3DoP Project:

  • Work Package 2 – Metal Printing Optimisation: In this work package, the consortium partners delve into the intricacies of optimising 3D metal printing, working to overcome the specific challenges associated with this critical area of AM.
  • Work Package 3 – 3D printed Tools, Moulds & imprinted Electronics: The third work package focuses on advancing the field of embedded electronics within the realm of 3D printing. The aim is to enhance the integration of electronics into 3D-printed objects.
  • Work Package 4 – Dental Printing: Dental applications are a significant aspect of AM, and in this package, the focus is on the precise field of 3D dental printing, striving to improve both efficiency and quality.
  • Work Package 5 – AM Production Automation: This package is dedicated to the automation of 3D printing factories, streamlining production processes, and increasing efficiency.

Beyond Implementation: 3DoP’s Regional Impact

While the core of the 3DoP project focuses on innovation investment projects, WP6 is dedicated to ensuring sustainability and leveraging the project’s impact across entire regional innovation ecosystems. This includes identifying needs and opportunities, offering support services, and integrating outreach efforts. The aim is to foster complementary innovation and investment projects aligned with Regional Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3).

Your Personal Invitation to the 3DoP Community Kick-off Event at Formnext

We invite you to join the 3DoP community at Formnext, the world’s premier event for Additive Manufacturing. The 3DoP project will be featured at the AM Hub Eindhoven pavilion, where you can explore the contributions to the exhibition. On November 7, AM enthousiasts hosts a special 3DoP community kick-off event at Formnext, and they want you to be a part of it.

We look forward to seeing you at Formnext 2023 and taking the first step towards a future of innovation, collaboration, and transformation in the world of 3D Printing.
