Seminars & webinars

For your entry into 3D Printing: the seminar series Discover3Dprinting.


  • What is 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing and how does it work?
  • Should I consider 3D Printing for my production?
  • Can I make money with it?
  • Where to get examples about obstacles, experiences and successful implementation?
  • What are the first / next steps to get started?

Have you ever asked yourself one of these questions? If you have, you should participate in this seminar.

"Brief but comprehensive introduction into the topic, clarifies terms and technologies, helps to evaluate the potentials for one's own business."

"Profound and hands-on overview of current AM technologies and applications, presented in a very easy to follow style. Also included actually manufactured small parts that were distributed in the audience for us to touch and inspect closely. Highly recommended seminar."

"The seminar gives an overall view of the state of the art of the AM technology, its application and challenges, giving enough knowledge to decide whether or not to deepen the study of this business opportunity or not."
