SITUATION REPORT of the current participating events under the 3DDW flag
3D Delta Week (3DDW) is quickly approaching (20 – 24 June), and the week’s content has already taken on nice shape. Various events of different organisations and companies have already been registered to take place under the 3DDW-flag and there are still some more to add to the program. Components from the entire ecosystem are thereby represented. The advantage of this Benelux ecosystem? Visitors can learn, network and explore 3D Manufacturing faster and easier. As several events around 3D Manufacturing are brought together in one week, you can easily and quickly select and attend the events that are of interest to you.
Create your own program
Via 3D Delta Week, you can put together an interesting and instructive program yourself. The still growing program contains events on different topics, aimed at diverse target groups and purposes and hosted on various locations. Hence, all tastes are catered for.
You can attend events with general and informative information about 3D printing, such as the Open House at Landré with information about 3D printing techniques and materials and a tour or demo at their showroom. However, also events focusing on more in-depth and specialist 3D printing know-how will take place. You will find this for example at events like the Materialise VIP Day with workshops delivered by industry experts in manufacturing and software for data and build preparation. Additionally, many events, conferences and master classes on specific 3D printing topics are being organised. For example, for answers to questions about 3D printing for the medical sector you can attend the masterclass “Scalable production for high volume am-applications for health” by Brainport Eindhoven. Or perhaps you are more interested in the potential of AM for the environment? Then the Additive Manufacturing Climate Action Conference is for you.
There is also plenty of opportunity for networking and gaining an overview of the AM field. At events like the 3D Delta Networking Dinner or RapidPro, you will be able to connect with important stakeholders within the domain. Another great example is Flam3D’s Additive Manufacturing R&D Day: an event focused on R&D on AM aimed at building new synergies, capitalising on each other’s expertise and findings, and matchmaking.
However, maybe you are looking for more diverse new or emerging techniques within the manufacturing industry? 3DDW has got you covered as well! From 22-23 June, 3DDW will not only put the spotlight on 3D printing, but on 3D Manufacturing in general! Events such as Virtual (R)evolution, the Smart Maintenance Congres and the Model Based Definition event, recently united under the name 3D Production Days, will give you an overview of industrial applications, specific solutions, and innovative techniques within the manufacturing industry.
In addition, several other events will join the eventweek as well. For instance, the events of 3D Makers Zone, Binder3D and Weber Beamix will be added to the program soon. So be sure to keep an eye on this page. PS. Would you like to organize an event under the 3DDW flag too? That is still possible! Find more information about how you can participate with your company or organisation on this page.
Strength in collaboration
The strength of the 3D Delta region lies in collaboration. Both Flanders and the Netherlands have a lot to offer in the field of 3D Manufacturing, but in order to gain international weight, we have to make it bigger together. A philosophy that ambassador sponsors Materialise and Design8 have fully understood and want to promote. A week in which the sector unites and presents itself in all its facets could in fact also attract foreign parties.
