3D Printing has become an instant phenomenon in contemporary art, culture, and business, expanding technological horizons for all fields of work. 3D Printing, also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM), refers to the process performed by an industrial robot that deposits layers of material in order to create pre-designed three-dimensional objects. The process has revolutionized the way objects and models are formed, finding more industrial and consumer uses than ever before. The 3D Printshow will take place in Berlin from March 26-28 and will travel throughout 2015 to other major cities worldwide, including Madrid, New York, London, California, Paris, and Dubai.

This year’s event will consist of a number of conferences, showcases, and workshops in the professional fields of medicine, business, investment, and the arts. The show will provide professionals and their businesses with an opportunity to network and familiarize themselves with the newest forms of technological innovation and the way 3D Printing can be incorporated into companies/industries. The show will also give the public a chance to explore 3D Printing and its many applications, welcoming participants to give it a try at the on-site printing lab.
