3D Printing Materials Conference

Event date: January 27, 201510:00u
End date: January 27, 2015

The ongoing development of new materials does not only have impact on the quality of the 3D printed end product, it opens new markets and it has a positive influence on the price level of the used materials.

Fine-tuning materials. The roads to success in the 3D printing sector will depend on fine-tuning materials to the needs of each application. This fine-tuning process will involve the type and the quality, strength and costs of materials, but also the selection of marketing channels and for example packaging of the end product.

Since each user group and each application needs its own materials set, the market has huge potential: it seems that hardly a day goes by without new materials being added to the 3D printing palette. But simultaneously, it raises many associated questions: which developments can be expected in the near future? Which markets will be influenced on short term? How can materials be produced cost-efficiently?


  • Materials; metals, plastics/polymers, ceramics
  • Development of emerging materials
  • Design rules
  • Value chains
  • Sustainability
  • Trends and market forecasts
  • Relationships between 3D printing processes and material options.

Who should attend? Any person who is involved in developing products for 3D printing, from designer to engineer, from researcher to 3D printer manufacturer and from material manufacturer to material reseller.
