Konferencja Naukowa "Szybkie Prototypowanie - Druk 3D i 4D w zastosowaniach inżynierskich".

Scientific conference on 3D and 4D printing technologies

19 september 2022
The 5th edition of the Rapid Prototyping, 3D&4D Printing for engineering applications" was held from 19 to 20 September at the Targi Kielce's Congress Centre. The meeting devoted to inter alia, the intelligent use of additive technologies began on the eve of this year's METAL industrial expo

Broadly defined research on 3D and 4D printing technology we witness today heralds the industrial revolution 4.0 and the latest software implementation. The scientific conference on "Rapid Prototyping, 3D and 4D printing in engineering applications" with the participation of representatives of scientific and industry milieus is excellent to gain knowledge exchange on the latest research.

- The last decade in 3D printing has brought amazing developments in the field of chemistry, materials and a new philosophy of layered manufacturing and contributed to the implementation of 4D printing combining all the advantages of 3D printing and a new innovative philosophy of design and production - said the Chairman of the Scientific Committee - Doctor Hab. Engineer Sławomir Błasiak, Professor  of Kielce University of Technology upon opening of the conference.

The implemented and planned investment of the Kielce University of Technology, its educational offer, the curricula launched in cooperation with the Jan Kochanowski University and other projects implemented in the Kielce research centre were discussed by Professor dr hab. Artur Maciąg, the Vice-Rector for Students and Didactics of the Kielce University of Technology.

- The conference scope is extremely important because it covers practically all areas of life: medicine, biomedical engineering, aviation, cosmonautics, arts. The number of areas 3D printing, 4D printing or multidimensional printing is can used for is very large. Thus such conferences attract an increasing number of people - thrue business insiders - emphasised prof. dr hab. Eng. Grzegorz Budzik from the Rzeszów University of Technology.

During the first day of the conference comprised of industry sessions with the participation of companies specialising in new additive technologies and 3D printing as well as a scientific session during which research and analyses of additive FDM or SLM technology. Technological solutions used for the automotive and civil industries are also in the limelight. The poster session features properties of products manufactured with the use of additive technologies and composites used in rapid prototyping technology or 3D printing technology. On the second day of the conference, two scientific sessions are held: online and on-site.

The conference is organised by the Kielce University of Technology in cooperation with Targi Kielce. The previous four editions were organised by the Rzeszów University of Technology.
