3D Printing/AM China 2012

China is growing more innovative. Research and development spending are increasing dramatically and so are patent filings. Great efforts are being made to promote enterprise-led innovation. New ideas and creative thinkings are encouraged and appreciated, reflecting the nation's commitment to build a more balanced and innovative economy.

3D printing/AM is a good solution to the products development in China. With better quality, saved time and reduced cost, a growing market for 3D printing/AM is expected. Personal and desktop printers are also taking momentum due the size of student and young population of the country.

3D PRINTING/AM CHINA 2012, the first of its kind, aims at promoting applications of 3D printing/AM. It is also a good business opportunity to meet customers.


  • The first event of its kind in China to introduce 3D printing and AM technologies.
  • Speakers are from leading research institutes, manufacturer and university at home and overseas.
  • Demonstrate the application of 3D printing and AM in various industries including industrial design, healthcare, automobile, aerospace, jewelry, footwear, cultural relic preservation, education, arts and etc.
  • Showcase of latest 3D printing and AM equipment, software, materials and service.
  • Extensive side events such as 3D printing in middle school education, 3D printing for digital arts and 3D printing for digital implant.
