3D Printing 101: Shaping the Future


3D Printing (3DP), also known as Rapid Prototyping or Additive Manufacturing, is revolutionising the way things are made. Traditionally it was used for concept models and functional prototype, but now we are moving towards Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) - using 3D printed parts as manufacturing tools or even, end-use-parts.

In this session, we will go through the introduction of 3DP, applications of 3DP in various industries such as consumer products, medical and life science, lifestyle, and manufacturing sector.

Attend to gain insights on real-life applications of this advanced technology and see how it is shaping our future.

At the end of the session you'll also have the opportunity to ask for advice on your current projects. Join the innovation conversation by registering for this sharing session now.
