The fourth edition of Additive Days, scheduled for July 4-5 in the industrial area of Pescara, Italy, is set to explore the frontiers of industrial 3D printing and its revolutionary impact on various sectors – providing a unique opportunity to discover the latest news, cutting-edge technologies, and most surprising applications of 3D printing materials.

The event, organized by Treddy, a 3D printing service and consultancy company, and Rimas 3D, an official reseller of the world’s leading 3D printers, scanners, and CAD design software, is a reference point for professionals and enthusiasts – bringing together industry leaders and making their expertise open to the general public, for free.

The exploration of industrial 3D printing’s potential, new additive materials, and the combination of both to create complex and customized objects in an eco-sustainable way, is at the heart of Additive Days 2024.

Industrial applications

Although 3D printing originated as a tool for rapid prototyping, and is still used as such today, it has evolved into a technology increasingly being adopted by large-scale industrial companies around the world – often to produce tooling aides and even end-use parts.

Within aerospace, the technology is widely used to prototype and iterate new designs, and to lightweight airplanes and spacecraft by producing generatively designed parts only possibly to manufacture using 3D printing, in different metals and polymers. Within automotive, the technology is used for similar applications to those in aerospace – also adopted by Formula 1 teams globally – and for bespoke customization within the luxury automotive niche.

The medical industry is benefitting enormously from the developments of 3D printing. The technology is used for the production of prosthetics and implants, with knee, hip, spinal, and CMF implants being among the clearest examples of digitally, additively mass-produced final parts.

The dental industry is one of the main medical beneficiaries. Thanks to the technology’s ability to produce cost-effective, patient-specific parts, companies like Invisalign, the largest producer of clear aligners, have reportedly 3D printed more than half a million unique parts per day in recent years. The combination of intraoral scanning and 3D printing is enabling dental labs to create crowns, bridges, and bite splints perfectly fit for a patient’s anatomy. All the way back in 2017, Formlabs, a 3D printer manufacturer based in Massachusetts, USA, estimated that dental practitioners had already successfully completed more than 50,000 guided oral surgeries using guides printed on the company’s Form 2 system alone.

Companies producing consumer goods are quickly turning to 3D printing, for far more than mere prototyping – enabling them to efficiently adapt to consumer demands and trends. The technology is speeding up product development and time-to-market, and enabling never-before-seen mass customization.

Presentations

Participants will have the opportunity to discover the latest technologies and innovative materials that are shaping the future of additive manufacturing through presentations from companies such as HP 3D Printing, one of the most significant players in the world of 3D printing, and the event’s main sponsor; Caracol AM, a leading large format additive manufacturing (LFAM) company based in Milan; Markforged, an American company known for its Digital Forge – an industrial platform of 3D printers, software, and materials that enables 3D printing at the point-of-need; DWS Systems, an Italian company producing 3D printers for prototyping and rapid manufacturing, materials for 3D printing, and related management software; AM Solutions, a company offering industrial post-processing solutions and equipment independent of the printing process and the part material; and Guzman Polymers, an importer and distributor of raw materials, polymers, and plastics for industries such as 3D printing.

Guest speakers and performances

The event is not limited to simply presenting the technical aspects of 3D printing, but will also host exceptional testimonials from iconic figures in the world of motorcycling, such as Loris Capirossi and Danilo Petrucci, who will share their experience in the racing sector – where 3D printing is playing an increasingly important role. In addition to this, the program will be enriched by an artistic performance by Erica Abelardo, who will create sand art, live, using additive materials from Treddy, on the Friday evening, as well as insights from sports and fashion influencers like Valentina Vignali.

Additive Days, sponsored by VoxelMatters, a trusted independent resource for additive manufacturing industry news, information, and market insights, is a must-attend event for all those looking to understand the future of industrial 3D printing, and how to leverage it effectively.

It is brought to life thanks to the patronage of prestigious institutions such as the City of Pescara, Confindustria, and AITA (Associazione Italiana Tecnologie Additive) – all of which confirm the value and centrality of this event in the national 3D printing landscape.

The event will be held at the Treddy headquarters, at via Raiale 93/A, in Pescara, and will be free and open to everyone, including both businesses and private individuals. Those looking to attend can find more information here.
