This is the biggest event in the Central East Europe in the theme of 3D printing, also the Budapest 3D Printing Days. The purpose of the Design Terminal’s event is to gather together the leaders who are involved in 3D printing, from the enterprises to the investors. Another purpose is to familiarize the audience with the new dynamic technology by giving them the opportunity to try out the newest 3D printers.
The 3D printing’s market is increasing by 3 billion dollars by year. The new technology will become cheaper and more effective in the next decade and it will change the whole industry , from design to the mass production and to medicine.
In 3D printing we can find promising Hungarian companies, such as the Leona3Do or the DOD3D start-up. Liszkai Tamás, the founder of the company, thinks that the first professional Hungarian 3D printer will be faster and cheaper than its foreign counterparts. The 3D Printing Days will be organized with the help of the Fablab Budapest, the FreeDee Printing Solutions, the Gigamax3D and the Varinex Kft.
