Local Manufacturing and The Future of 3D Printing

Fri 04 May 2018 17:30-18:00, Classroom 2, Said Business School


With production facilities connected in over 140 countries, 3D Hubs helps product designers and engineers find the fastest and most price competitive manufacturing solution. Founded in 2013, the network has since produced more than 1,000,000 parts, making 3D Hubs the global leader in distributed manufacturing.

As a key driver of the fourth industrial revolution, 3D printing & digitisation is not only reinventing the way we manufacture goods and prototypes. In this talk, Filemon Schöffer will be sharing with us the success story of 3D Hubs, how local manufacturing is disrupting both the industry and the consumer market, reconfiguring the global supply chain. He will also discuss the impact of 3D printing on modern manufacturing and the future of 3D printing.

With a background in Physics and Industrial Design Engineering, Filemon Schöffer is currently the CMO at 3D Hubs, where he’s been responsible for setting up the world’s largest 3D printing network, with over 20,000 connected services. He is also the father of the 3D printing movement (@Marvin) and the co-author of the best selling book in 3D Printing, The 3D Printing Handbook.
