3D printing is revolutionising manufacturing, enabling new products, and impacting business processes. Germany’s pre-eminence in sophisticated manufacturing technology, processes, and products, will allow for 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, to make a large impression. Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, the leading B2B tradeshow for the 3D printing industry, will continue its world tour in Berlin on March 10-11, 2014. The conference, programmed by Dr.-Ing. Eric Klemp, Geschäftsführer of the DMRC Direct Manufacturing Research Center at the University of Paderborn, will feature two full days of conference sessions over two tracks. Interest in this emerging field is at an all-time high, with the inaugural New York City event attracting more than 3,000 attendees. Top exhibitors are to exhibit in Berlin and showcase their services. Discover what investment opportunities exist and create your product roadmap for a 3D printing enabled world. Inside 3D Printing brings together leading entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, educators and professionals to prepare you for the 3D printing boom.
Machines for industrial applications: Learn more about customer requirements and how you can meet them. Machine suppliers SLM Solutions, EOS and Stratasys show you how they are achieving it with their new developments. The result of an implementation can be the integration in existing process chains, an increase in productivity, repeatability and accuracy, as well as the developments used for quality controls and their verification.
New technologies and materials: You will gain an understanding of new machine designs to realise continuous manufacturing, of the implementation of known principals from well-established concepts, as well as a closer inspection of materials. The aim of this session is to demonstrate what modern machine designs look like and which materials are available.
European Research: What’s the current status of the RP7 and how’s the prospect for AM within Horizon 2020? Gain an insight into the design and implementation of such a project and learn what results you can expect.
Applications, professional services and processes for professional customers: The development process from rapid prototyping to the actual part is revealed. The main focus is the realisation of different customer requirements in a professional environment. Using the example of the aerospace industry, you will find out what it means to deliver to the market and how one large service provider is dealing with AM with growing volumes.
Professional service providers’ approach to processes and customer value: Service providers will tell you how you can add value through customers. From the construction and analysis of the desired functionalities, the realisation of the surface of AM parts and the integration of AM in the value-added chain, to the finished component. Learn everything you need to know in these sessions!
Technological developments for industrial and private users: Learn more about the colored refinement of AM parts to meet the need for industrial and private users. The speakers will show you how you take the step from home to professional use, using the example of stereolithography and its allied processes.

“In two decades, 3-D printing has grown from a niche manufacturing process to a $2.7-billion industry, responsible for the fabrication of all sorts of things: toys, wristwatches, airplane parts, food. Now scientists are working to apply similar 3-D–printing technology to the field of medicine, accelerating an equally dramatic change.” — Popular Science
“3D printing could well rewrite the rules of manufacturing in much the same way as the PC trashed the traditional world of computing” — The Economist
“3D Printing helps you make the product from the core up so you have less waste…The tool is cheaper, the time is faster. If all thought 3D printing could do was shoes, I wouldn’t be talking about it.” — Jeffrey Immelt, CEO, General Electric
Watch 3D printers in action and meet with top 3D printing companies and experts at Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo. Here’s a peek inside our recent event in California.
“I was amazed at the attendance of the show. With varying backgrounds, needs and knowledge, it was easy to see that 3D printing really is ready for the broader audience.” — Afinia News
“After years of being lumped in with other maker-oriented technologies, 3D printing finally has its own professional conference, the Inside 3D Printing event.” — CNET
“For two days, New York became the center of the 3D-printing world, with some of the industry’s leading companies gathering at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center…” — Mashable
“One thing that impressed me was how well the crowd mixed—it included plenty of people who were completely new, lots of people from the “desktop” 3d printing world, and plenty of people from medical and aerospace, whose printers cost several times more than most of us make in a year.” — Make
“The Inside 3D Printing keynote this morning was a state-of-the-industry address from Terry Wohlers of Wohlers Associates…the definitive independent resource for gauging the state of business and technology in the 3D printing field.” — Adafruit
“Seeing an audience of 1,000+ is a speaker’s dream come true. That’s what I saw when walking onto the stage early Tuesday morning. The attendees were a mix of NY investors, analysts, startup companies, and corporations of all types.” — Wohlers Talk
“The excitement and anticipation and the full-on eagerness to learn more is as strong as any I have ever seen, maybe more so. People were getting there early…And as many, if not more hung around after the close — both days — to talk more, to engage more and to network even more.” — 3D Printing Industry
