Workshop Overview

I3DL™ – International 3D Printing Driving Licence is the first and only comprehensive Certifying program on 3D Technologies, including 3D Printing, 3D Scanning, 3D Modeling, Computer Aided Engineering and related technologies in Industry 4.0.


The main Goal of the I3DL™ Workshop is to bring State of the Art Knowledge and hands-on experiences to people. Academic and industrial expert can update their 3D knowledge and newcomers can quickly acquire the most relevant know-how to get into the new technology.


Workshop Concept

The Workshop is typically a mix of presentations, lectures, hands-on workshops, panel and group discussions, and can also include poster session, B2B Technology Match Making and Project Presentations. Customized Contents can be also included according to organizers’ requests and suggestions.
