“I found that many questions asked at the Materialise 3DP Academy were answered more openly than at other workshops. There were also conscious efforts to discuss the various challenges, which I really appreciated.”
– Rainer Sabisch, Director of Global Application Engineering at Alcoa Power and Propulsion TITAL GmbH

“We had bad experiences with the early stages of 3D printing 10 to 12 years ago. Now, the technology has moved on, and at 3DP Academy I learned how we can really utilize it for saving costs in production lines. That’s always a plus for any company.”
– Chris Dufaux, Mechanical Design Engineer at Renishaw
