Looking back at Rapid.Tech 3D

Exciting days at Rapid.Tech celebrating the 3D Pioneers Challenge Award Ceremony, joining the European AM Platform Meeting, and exploring interesting networking opportunities.

We had an incredible time at the 20th anniversary of Rapid.Tech + FabCon 3D in Erfurt, the future-oriented pioneering event of the AM scene! It was the perfect place to discover new innovative solutions and celebrate industry advancements.

First of all, on May 14th we celebrated the 9th edition of the 3D Pioneers Challenge award ceremony, a competition that brings together the sharpest minds and most creative solutions in additive manufacturing, across various categories. Every year, it becomes more global and diverse, and this year was no exception! Moreover, it was an honor for MGA to be part of the jury. Stefanie Brickwede and Naomi Nathan not only contributed to the selection of the winners, but also to the presentation of the awards in the Medical Technology and Machinery categories. We would like to give a big shoutout to all participants for their amazing ideas, huge congratulations to this year’s winners, as well as a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this year’s edition!

The excitement didn’t stop there. On May 15th, we joined the European AM Platform Meeting, where our managing director, Stefanie Brickwede, had the opportunity to present our network on stage. The AM-platform serves as a free virtual hub for all topics related to Additive Manufacturing in Central Europe. The objective is to foster a cohesive strategy, understanding, and utilization of AM technologies. By aligning with the Lisbon and Gothenburg objectives set by the European Commission, the aim is to drive the AM industry towards becoming the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy by 2030 while also promoting sustainability.

Overall, it was a great opportunity to attend exciting presentations and exhibitions, and to connect with industry experts, exchange knowledge, and contribute to the future of 3D printing. We are already looking forward to next year’s edition that will take place from 13 to 15 May 2025!
