Posted By on Jun 19, 2019 |

Have you downloaded The State of 3D Printing 2019? Each year, we ask 3D printing professionals to answer our survey in order the get a great overview of the use of this technology. Today, let’s focus on the presence of women in the 3D printing industry in partnership with our friends at Women in 3D Printing. Where are they?

Let’s find out, and download this free report about women in the 3D printing industry.


State of 3D printing: the biggest study about additive manufacturing


Each year, Sculpteo release the State of 3D printing, a huge study about the additive manufacturing industry, and the use of this technology in a professional context. For this 5th edition, we had over 1300 respondents from more than 65 countries.

Now that the biggest study on the additive manufacturing world is out, you can learn about all these interesting data, and get a better understanding of the point of view of professional users about the evolution of this technology.  What are the biggest advantages of additive manufacturing for them? How is it impacting their business strategy? These are all the data you will have access to with this report.

But this year we decided to enrich our study with two more reports: One about the 3D printing job market, and another one about women in 3D printing, to learn more about their presence and work in the additive manufacturing sector.

Why did we decide to create a mini report about women this year? The State of 3D Printing is the biggest study about 3D printing, we decided to offer you the most complete study possible on this growing industry. Diversity is an important subject for us, and we support the increasing presence of women in an industry such as additive manufacturing. We are sure that you’ll be as interested as us by the results of this mini report.


Insights about Women in 3D Printing


Nora Touré, who worked at Sculpteo for 8 years, is the founder of Women in 3D printing, introduce this report. If you never heard of Women in 3D printing, it is a global organization, promoting, supporting and inspiring women in the additive manufacturing industry.

The idea: Share about diversity in 3D printing, promoting it and give visibility to women in the industry. As Nora Toure explains it in the introduction of this report:

“’‘The State of Women in 3D Printing offers very complete and useful insights that we hope will help to shatter the gender glass ceiling many women are facing throughout their careers in Additive Manufacturing, especially in engineering-related positions.”

-Nora Touré (Founder of Women in 3D Printing)
