Ideation lab covering the topic “How can 3D printing save the world” on Ludwig Bölkow Campus04 October 2018
On September 20, approx. 60 experts from industry and science met on the initiative of Bayern Innovativ and Airbus R&T (CRT) to discuss the topic ”3D printed - function integrated“. At the beginning of the event speakers from industry presented actual use cases for additive manufacturing with the focus on applications in aerospace. The scientific status of basic materials used for additive manufacturing as well as the challenges and solutions for integrated functions rounded up the presentations before lunch time. The spotlight in the afternoon has been on the workshop “Ideation lab additive manufacturing - how can 3D printing save the world?“ The moderated workshop was conducted under the format of a ”creative sprint“ with the aim to generate ideas and visions, and to find new ideas for products/parts. Four start-ups located at LBC and doing business in the field of additive manufacturing were present with a booth and participated at the workshop.
