3D printing at home – Seminar

3D printing at home is going to change the way we are living! We will be able to print everything we have designed in the comfort of our home.

3D Printing is hot. All over the world new initiatives start to offer 3D printing services, and more and more companies are using 3D printers for rapid prototyping and/or low volume production. 3D printer prices are getting lower, and some organizations are offering 3D printers below 1000 Euro.

3D printing at home is the central theme of the 3D Printing Event, which will take place during the Dutch Design Week, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, October 2011.

The event exists out of three linked activities:

  • The seminar will tackle social, technical, cultural and design challenges, discuss innovative solutions, show new business opportunities and will give an outlook into the future of 3D home printer industry.
  • The exhibition will show 3D printing in its current and future formats
  • The 3D Printing Design competition exhibition will show the best selections of designs printed with a future home 3D printer.
