3D-Print Conference
Amsterdam 2016


Vondel CS, Amsterdam. 1 June 2016

Welcome to
the next edition


Welcome to the 3D-Print Conference Amsterdam. After a successful edition in 2015 and a great start in 2014 we brought the next edition of this conference to the heart of Amsterdam in Vondel CS in the Vondelpark!


Like last year we focussed on finding the right business cases for 3D-printing. And this year we continued to look at successful implementations of 3D-printing, to the current status of the market, but above all at what’s to come!


But that’s not all, we also moved this conference forward with another great program for the creative industry. How can the creative industry tap into the possibilities of 3D-printing now and in the (near) future? The latest insights and great cases and examples where given by specialists, consultants, experts and creative minds.


3D Print Conference Amsterdam is all about exploring the field and finding the right business case. The conference is positioned in the sweet spot of mass customization, mass production and design, with top notch speakers from every aspect of professional 3D printing.


LIVE: BNR (Business News Radio) broadcasted with a radio debate from the 3D-Print Conference Amsterdam! Listen here! (Dutch)

Building with Additive Manufacturing: An open future for design and construction
Marta Malé-AlemanyHead Lecturer in Digital Production, Urban Technology Research Programme / School of Engineering Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS – HvA)
Venue: Studio B
In the last 25 years, digital fabrication has transformed the production of architecture. Through the use of computers, architects began to establish a direct link with manufacturers, gaining an exceptional control over their building forms. Digital fabrication entered architecture in the 90‘s -through the technology transfer from other sectors- for the production of small structures. Progressively, it got used in the construction of buildings that required non-standard solutions. The digital fabrication processes that were available then (mainly subtractive or formative) offered constructive possibilities that were unthinkable before. Nowadays, AM can offer architecture an even more advanced production paradigm.

Marta Malé-Alemany has investigated the impact of digital technologies for the production of architecture for many years, in her own profesional practice, as a reseracher and academic in various international schools, and also as an exhibition curator of themes related to design and technology. She has explored the impact of 3D Printing for design through various dedicated exhibitions, and deepen her investigations through her doctoral theses, which focused on the potential of AM technologies for architecture and construction.

This year she brings a synthesis of this topic at the 3D Print Conference, by looking at the added value of 3D Printing for building purposes, recalling where it all started, presenting experiments done under her guidance, exploring the current state of the art, and pointing towards a wide open and stimulating future.

Aiming to create custom-tailored solutions for heads similar to how suits are created to custom-fit our bodies, the Boulton Eyewear team uses a process that allows users to scan their faces using their own phones rather than a dedicated 3D scanner. Once the company receives the photos, they then create a digital model of a user’s face to reference for creating the final measurements of the 3D printed eye frames, which come in both sunglasses or prescription lenses in a variety of styles.

How 3D printing is helping emerging economies
Jasper MiddendorpFounder Reflow
Venue: Studio A
For forward thinking creators everywhere, Reflow converts recyclable plastic into ethical, affordable, high-quality 3D print filament using open source technology. Their mission is to significantly improve the lives of waste pickers and to create a global, socially responsible 3D printing community.

Reflow believes that the disruption of manufacturing by 3D printing will happen in developing countries first. Just like mobile banking skyrocketed in Africa because of broken banking structures, 3D printing will take off because of broken distribution lines, high costs of transport, and lack of capital for large scale production.
14:15pm - 14:35pm
3D Casting & Metal Printing by EDS Innovation
Mark RahusenManaging Director EDS Innovation
Venue: Studio A
3D metal printing offers enormous design possibilities. We would like to show what we experience when we are approached for a product design in general. Printing a product is often seen as an objective on its own where in our opinion it will always be a method to create a product. Should your product be 3D printed?

Send your 3D design prior to the conference to Mark@edsinnovation.com. We will take a look at your design, give you feedback on possible improvements and take you on a journey that will make your ideas come to live. We would like to share the received requests and results with everybody present on the 1st of June. If you are concerned about sharing your ideas to a third party please let us know in advance.
14:40pm - 15:00pm
Additive Manufacturing – State of the Art and ongoing advances
Wessel WitsAssistant Professor of “Physics in Design” at the Laboratory of Design, Production and Management at the Faculty of Engineering Technology, University of Twente
Venue: Studio A
Additive manufacturing allows for more (geometrical) freedom and personalization of parts. Design engineers are therefore increasingly embracing the unique properties to design parts with complex embedded functionalities in a relatively fast CAD-to-part process. Next to part design, also process design for additive manufacturing is an important topic to improve final part quality, for instance to optimize the build direction, reduce internal stress and part deformation, reduce porosity, etc.

At the hand of several industrial design projects, the presentation will highlight the current state of the art and capabilities of additive manufacturing. Also, ongoing advances and current research projects will be presented, touching upon challenges for the entire additive manufacturing product development process from concept design to the end-user. For instance, activities in terms of computer aided design tools, process modeling and prediction, and (destructive vs. non-destructive) testing methods for quality assurance.

Dr. Ir. Wessel W. Wits is Assistant Professor of “Physics in Design” at the Laboratory of Design, Production and Management at the Faculty of Engineering Technology, University of Twente. He teaches several design-related courses at the bachelor (BSc), master (MSc) and post-master (PDEng) levels. His main research focuses on designing from first principles. From an engineering perspective, successful product development is constantly challenged by considering novel technologies. For design engineers this requires both a thorough understanding of the underlying physics and physical phenomena, and a systematic way to transfer this knowledge to the product level. Additive manufacturing, as enabling technology for future high-value engineered products, has received his special attention. Especially for metal-based powder bed processes, Dr. Wits has investigated many aspects for industrial applications, such as Design tools, Process planning, Testing methods, Quality assurance, etc.

3D Printing Quick Scan
Onno PonfoortSenior Managing Consultant at Berenschot
Venue: Studio A
Many companies are contemplating investments in 3D printing. They see benefits in many areas. Still, reaching a decision is hard: how do you compare possible market opportunities, with extra speed in product design, or better tooling, or supply chain efficiency? Often each opportunity you see requires a specific kind of 3D printing investment. A polymer printer, will not produce metal parts. And buying a printer is not enough, you will need to adjust your workflow and value chain, and educate your personnel. The 3D Printing Quick Scan is a tool to help you assess the various benefits of 3D printing for your company. It helps you put a value on the benefits so you can compare the various options.. Based on these insights you can focus your attention on those aspects that add most value to your company and have an economic justification for your investmens.
