Additive Manufacturing (AM) Interest Group

Main content

Additive Manufacturing (AM) / 3D Printing has the potential to fundamentally change research and manufacturing. Our AM Interest Group connects all members at ETH involved in 3D printing.

The use of additive manufacturing (AM) continues to rise among students and scientists at ETH Zurich. In order to connect the 3D printer users and scientists who pursue research in the field of additive manufacturing, the ETH AM Interest Group has been created. This is a platform to exchange know-how and experiences as well as to interlink research projects following common strategies, thereby fostering innovation and pioneering research in the AM field. A further objective of this platform is an up-to-date status on available AM infrastructure which enables an efficient resource planning within the community.
