Additive Manufacturing technologies are developing rapidly all over the world. It’s a challenge to keep up to date with international trends, dynamic technologies and business cases. By creating an international platform where knowledge is shared, industry insights are given and international trends explained we can accelerate the learning curve and stimulate each other to bring this innovative technology to a mature level.

On  March 20-21, 2019 the 7th edition of the Additive World Conference took place at the High Tech Campus and at the HQ of Additive Industries in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. This already 7th edition of the Conference was organised, just like the previous editions, to learn the latest on industrial additive manufacturing from a broad perspective. Experienced users from all stages of the Additive Manufacturing process (design, simulation, production, quality control and post-processing) will come together, providing delegates a complete picture of this emerging technology. More information on the 7th edition of the Additive World Conference can be found here. The new edition of the Conference will take place on April 1-2, 2020.


The designer has the key to success of 3D printing
Industrial 3D metal printing or additive manufacturing is gaining ground every day. In aerospace fuel nozzles are printed by GE Aviation, Siemens is printing parts for turbines and both dental and medical implants are made additively by several specialised manufacturers. Critical in the success of these innovative applications is the ability of the designer to ‘design for additive manufacturing’ or maximize the possibilities this new production technology has to offer. Apply the features that make this technology unique: design freedom, thin walls, lattice structures, form free channels in the product, integration of parts and functions, customisation and more.

Additive Industries wants to challenge both professional designers and students
In order to raise the number of examples and inspire many other industries to develop dedicated applications for industrial 3D printing Additive Industries has launched the 6th edition of the Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge on October 25, 2019, during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, the largest design event in Northern Europethe largest design event in Northern Europe

Competing in two categories both professional designers & engineers and students are encouraged to take an existing part of a machine or product that is made with conventional technologies today and redesign it for 3D printing. The possibility to apply for Design Challenge 2020 is from October 25, 2019 until February 1, 2020. To find out more about the finalists, winners and prizes of the last edition on the Design Challenge, please go to the Design Challenge 2019 page. 

Registration for all the events is  possible through this website. For questions please contact our team: or by phone +31 (0) 40 2180660.
