3D Printing in China – A Roadmap of “Made in China 2025” As one of the 6 Innovations Accelerators, 3D printing is driving the transition of conventional industrial development and commercial models. With 2015’s research on China’s 3D printing market, IDC will take a look at the current status of 3D printing in China. IDC will also study how 3D printing in the future will accommodate the plan of Made in China 2025 to drive the industrial development in China.

Shaping a New World of Opportunities Hewlett Packard has been a long-time leader in the IT sector for more than 60 years and Silicon Valley’s first garage-to-world leader story. The keynote will focus on how HP, through its heritage of technological breakthroughs in Inkjet printing technology and its technological assets, will break the industries barriers and revolutionize the additive manufacturing/3D Printing industry. This presentation will reveal Hewlett Packard’s roadmap to this transformation through its HP Multi Jet Fusion TM technology and its go-to-market vision.
3D Printing Surgical Implants This session will cover surgical implants/artificial organs of interest along with materials considerations and smart materials. Cellular integration including printing a ‘living’ implant and 3D printing challenges related to instrumentation and software are all part of the discussion.

Awareness to Application — yesterday, today and tomorrow of 3D printing
The Challenge of Adopting 3d Printing Technology in Healthcare In the past decade, we have seen many successful stories about how 3D printing can improve healthcare, such as the use of custom anatomical models, custom implants, custom prostheses and orthotics. However, at this point we still don’t see mass adoption of 3D printing in healthcare institute, and the limitation of the hardware is not the only major hurdle. In this presentation we are going to go through the major issues that we need to overcome to make 3D printing more approachable to today healthcare professionals.

3D Printing: Education for the 21st Century Education is key to the building of a 3DP-literate public and workforce. How can we most effectively develop, deliver and then administer educational programs that will not only stretch the imagination of students but also leave them with them hands-on, career-oriented 3D printing skills? In this session, we’ll learn about what’s already being done on 3D Printing’s education and training frontiers. We’ll survey the variety of educational and structural models that have emerged to-date. We’ll also review 3D printing and modeling educational programs available for students today.
Toy Design and Beyond: How 3D Printing is Changing Everything This session will cover how 3D printing has already changed the toy industry, how it is currently changing, and the amazing future ahead. See how the corporate overseas manufacturing model vs. the “American Made (in my garage)” culture is evolving through fun toy examples. Find out how 3D prototyping has changed and accelerated Mark’s private inventing business on every level. He will also discuss why there has never been a more exciting time to be an inventor/designer/artist – and how anyone can get involved in changing the world today. 3D printing allows inventors to maximize their talents to create anything they can dream up, and make a living doing it. Plus insights into our awesome future…. and how it is being reimagined everyday.

3D Printing Is Changing the Way We Think
New Models for Design and Consumerism in the Postindustrial Era Through a series of case studies this presentation will illustrate new approaches to design, manufacturing, and consumerism enabled by digital design and manufacturing technologies. It will focus not on the production technologies themselves but on the creative opportunities they afford. The freedom and flexibility of Additive Manufacturing (AM) offers not only complex geometries; it allows a reassessment and reinvention of relationships between designer, manufacturer and consumer. The designer can explore new ways of working, the manufacturer can respond to niche markets, and the consumer can become engaged in the creative process. Digital manufacturing is a revolution that is blurring traditional boundaries between art, design and craft. The freedoms of this technology demand not only intriguing designs but creative approaches to business in general.

A Glimpse into the Future of 3D Printing Academics, economists and even politicians acknowledge the role of additive manufacturing in the Third Industrial Revolution. Yet most consumers did not buy a 3D printed good in 2014. Relying on case studies sourced from in-person visits to leading practitioners across more than 10 countries, this talk will dive into such discrepancies and offer a compelling perspective on the future of the technological and business landscape. Topics to be addressed include why the Long Tail is trumped by Constrained Customization, speculation on how to make 3DP 100x faster, and a formulation of the ultimate promise of 3D printing.
