Here is why we need you to participate.


What is the State of 3D Printing?

The State of 3D printing is an annual survey made by Sculpteo, since 2015. Each year, we ask you about your use of 3D printing. Why? As the industry grows, the uses of 3D printing continue to evolve. We want to show the world what 3D printing can do and how it is impacting real people and businesses. As we gather this information and publish it each year in our free report, we share these insights with material and machine manufacturers and other players in the industry. This helps to guide the industry as to what users want and ensure your needs are met.

With more than 1000 participants from 62 countries and 2100 downloads last year, the State of 3D Printing is the largest 3D printing study.

This survey is addressed to anyone using additive manufacturing for professional use, research, or personal interests. We then analyze how promising this technology is by considering what are the most used materials, in which sectors 3D printing is used, for what, and what are its benefits for companies!

This survey is always a great success, and very useful for all professionals, so we are doing it once again this year, for a 5th edition. But obviously, we can’t do it without you!


Why we need you

This survey provides insights into your true use, your views, your experiences with additive manufacturing, the evolution of your needs, and the problems you need to resolve to make the most of this impressive technology.

This survey will allow us to build a whole study, which will benefit 3D printer manufacturers, 3D printing services, researchers, and so on! With your participation, you will shape the future of additive manufacturing and help this industry to grow in the right direction!

CEOs, engineers, surgeons, project managers, architects… Everyone is invited to answer to this study, we need people from all sectors and all professions to answer our questions!
