Additive manufacturing is one of the innovations of the 21st century. Hardly a day goes by without that this technology surprises with something new. Meanwhile it is part in higher education programs and at technological universities or institutes. 3D printing is standing on the threshold to be integrated into industrial manufacturing processes. For some time now, the technology is not pushing its way to the fore – but as hidden champion, it acts as an "enabler" of many concepts and innovations, and even of completely new business fields. The needs of humans are in the foreground through individual solutions. Spare parts procurement is being rethought. Last but not least, lightweight construction creates sustainability. Social projects are only made possible by 3D printing in some areas. Pioneer thinking also requires the courage to put it into practice, breaking new ground. The 3DPC is looking for these pioneers who think 3D printing one step further. Where is it enabler, where is it in the main focus?

Further prizes awarded by our partners:
The Exhibition at the Rapid.Tech + FabCon 3.D in June 2019 was a full success.The exhibition of the finalists will be shown as a roadshow over one year at various national and international locations. Among others, there will be the 3DCafé in the German Bundestag by the 3DDruck e.V. association in Berlin. The 3D Pioneers Challenge will once again present the highlights of the challenge 2019 to politics as an international platform for 3D printing.
Whilst the 3DKonzept Lab 3DPC presents projects of the finalists of 3DPC 2019.
Mobility goes Additive is an international network for industrial Additive Manufacturing which acts as a central platform for providing solutions for the challenges facing the AM industry. Each year, the network hosts its MgA Annual Meeting to bring together AM industry professionals and companies. A big thank you to our partner Deutsche Bahn for this Roadshowstop.
This year's 14th Baden-Württemberg SchreinerTag will take place in Baienfurt near Weingarten, Germany. This year again, visitors will benefit from a proven mix of lectures, supplier marketplace and exchange of experience. Simone Völcker will present the highlights of 3DPC at a lecture pushing the following questions regarding 3D Printing: What is possible today? What is the range of materials and manufacturing processes? What about hybrids and enabler interfaces to the trade. How can you produce? Think outside the box- project examples/innovations of the 3D printing industry.
The Elmia Subcontractor InnoDex trade show in Jönköping is the leading tradeshow for technical supply industry of the production branche in Northeurope and Scandinavia. For the seventh time Haute Innovation organizes the secial exhibition space with trends and actual material developments as well as innovations in technology. 3DPC is on board also for the 4th year.
Together with our partner Haute Innovation we present the highlights of the finalists 3DPC 2019. #IEM2020
