A UK-based distributor of AM technologies, GoPrint3D is unveiling a new 3D printing conference. The conference is called Additive Live and its first edition event is set for the end of January 2020. HP is the main supporter of the event that will be hosted at the Additive Manufacturing lab of Metropolitan University in PrintCity in Manchester.
Currently, many events hosted across the world are centered on the 3D printing sector. Such events vary in scope and size. There are some that are biggest such as Formnext include much of the wide sector. They also bring closer firms and actors from around the universe.
Other events have included focus centering on a certain aspect of the extended AM industry. Additive Live lies less or more into the late class.
The initial release of the GoPrint3D event will be focused on 3D printing in higher education. In this theme, the convention will hold discussions on the use of shade in additive manufacturing, generative design, etc.
Reputably, the convention will comprise a presurvey of HP’s university-grade additive manufacturing curriculum.
Specialists attending the occasion will as well highlight some of the basics of establishing a 3D printing lab in the universities. They will also highlight how to make connections between academia and the sector. This is especially with SMEs. This is a thing that is confirming to be crucial for the enactment of 3D printing.
“The idea behind Additive Live is to help delegates learn about the latest AM technologies and best practices, whilst helping them improve their 3D printing skills and develop their professional network,” stated the Marketing Manager of GoPrint3D, David Whitehouse.
”Our first event in Manchester will be tailored towards Universities and Colleges.”
“PrintCity and Manchester Metropolitan University are thrilled to be hosting this event. As an organisation, PrintCity is constantly looking to collaborate with industry leaders and to incorporate the latest technologies and practices into our teaching and research output,” added Edmund Keefe, Senior Lecturer Industrial Digitalisation at PrintCity.
The latest 3D printing convention has some rather high-profile support from HP. The support will possibly create interest. The backing comes after the announcement by HP this summertime. It stated that it was including GoPrint3D to its roster of UK resellers. This is for its Jet Fusion technology.
“HP is very pleased to be supporting our channel partner GoPrint3D at this inaugural event, and look forward to hearing from the attendees on their future developments for AM and how we can assist them in realizing these plans,” said Maryam Qureshi, Application Specialist 3D printing at HP Inc.
The premier release of the Additive Live convention is set for on January 28, 2020, at PrintCity at the Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK. The event is free to join.
