3D printing conference, Rotterdam
Key players in 3D-printing technology to meet
ROTTERDAM (NL) - Last year, The Economist labelled 3D printing – producing fully digitized objects with smart software – as the third industrial revolution. On the forefront of this revolution is Italian entrepreneur, designer and inventor Enrico Dini, who has developed a 3D printer, dubbed D-shape, that produces structures from sand. In 2014, he plans to build an entire house (see upcoming article in A10 #50).
During a lecture at the RDM Campus
in Rotterdam, Dini and other key players in the field of 3D-printing building technology will come together to talk about the latest developments and possibilities for the future. Participants are Peter Troxler
, lecturer at 'Revolution in Manufacturing' at the Polytechnic College in Rotterdam and chairman of the International FabLab Association
, Thomas Bossuyt, sales engineer of LayerWise
, a Belgian company that shapes metal parts by melting metal powder layer by layer, and Jelle Feringa, PhD student at Hyperbody
, a research group at the Faculty of Architecture of the Delft University of Technology that explores techniques and methods for designing and building of non-standard, virtual and interactive architectures.
