3D Printing of Bioinspired Materials


This symposium will highlight the state-of-the-art researches and innovations on bioinspired materials and related themes such as technical materials, construction materials and practical applications, using 3D printing technologies.Research scientists, engineers (design, mechanical, industrial, aerospace and construction), architects, innovators, and technologists will have a great opportunity to exchange knowledge about innovative process and materials using 3D printing in the field such as engineering and construction, automotive, aerospace, industrial design, architecture, dental, medical industries.This event would also bring international academic and industrial experts to discuss the key challenges and opportunities in the field of 3D printing that would go beyond the “overhype” media attention on this technology.

Scope/Topics Covered

State of the art of additive manufacturing

Prototype to production

Nanoprinting (surfaces structuration at micro and/or nano-scale)

Bioprinting (molds, materials for bioprinting)
