About Rapid.Tech 3D

The meeting place for additive technologies.

Rapid.Tech 3D is one of the most important information events in the field of additive manufacturing processes.

The status and progress of rapid prototyping up to the implementation of end products with the help of additive manufacturing, as well as the entry of technology into series production, are examined. In addition, the Rapid.Tech 3.D as a user conference with an accompanying trade fair offers a platform for the exchange of knowledge between researchers, developers, designers and users. Rapid.Tech 3D is based on a triad of congress - trade fair - networking and, with its unique combination of theory and practice, creates a successful overall package for visitors and exhibitors.


Rapid.Tech 3D offers a creative meeting point for start-ups as well as for experts and industry giants in additive manufacturing.

In addition to a high-class trade fair, the 3D Printing Conference, the 3D Pioneers Challenge or the Start-Up Award offer suitable opportunities for networking and the presentation of ideas as part of Rapid.Tech 3D.

For the 20th time, Erfurt will be the hotspot of 3D printing and will offer providers and users of additive processes a stage in Erfurt.

Rapid.Tech 3D is aimed at both users and developers of additive manufacturing technologies. Under the motto 'Understand. See. Experience' users and providers are brought together in a targeted manner. At the international specialist congress, leading scientists and experts from practice will present the latest findings on industrial 3D printing. In the exhibition area, companies and research institutions present the latest products and technologies.

Rapid.Tech 3D offers plenty of space for the exchange of ideas and the initiation of projects: whether in the specialist forums, at the exhibition stands, at the evening event - NETWORKING has always been a top priority for us!
