No matter where you are in the world, there is always a 3D printing event there for you. If you are curious about 3D printing and don’t want to miss any opportunities to meet the 3D community and learn about the latest trends, here is a list of a few 3D printing events you should definitely put in your agenda !


  1. 3d Printshow


The 3D Printshow is a series of 3D printing events taking place in 6 differents countries with shows in Paris, London, Amsterdam, Dubaï, Istanbul and California. This organization created a show to promote 3D printing and enhance the visibility and access to this technology. Key players of the 3D printing community are attending such as engineers, designers, online 3D printing services and makers. This mix of passionate people allows everyone to discover the latest innovations in this industry and create a solid network with the attendees. The team organizing these events is really involved in 3D printing and always aware of the latest trends on 3D printing. Follow them on twitter if you want to keep up with all the latest news @kerry_hogarth  and @Faith__Robinson!

The last Euromold Event was the September 25th in Germany at Dusseldorf.


    6.  Rapid 

For 26 years Rapid has been the authority tradeshow in 3D. Specialised in Scanning and additive manufacturing. With more than 14 additive manufacturing technologies represented Rapid is one of the most specialised event in 3D printing covering a lot of aspects around the technology such as : tooling, services, softwares and peripheral technologies


The next event will be May 17-19th in Orlando, Florida.


  1. Maker faire 

The Maker Faire is an event made in the spirit of the movements of the makers, meaning the people who loves to create things by theirselves. They are 3D printing enthusiast because 3D printing allow them to be independent from the usual manufacturing technologies. This event is not only focus on 3D printing, but it is an amazing opportunity to meet the community who is living this technology with all its heart. This “family-friendly festival of invention” is gathering both science part and county part. There are 14 Maker Faires and 119 Mini Maker Faires around the world !
