Expert Seminar--the Business Model of 3D Printing?
3D printing, born in 30 years ago, does not develop so fast as people’s imagination, there are two main reasons, on one hand, 3D printing technology is not a strong alternative technology, unable to compete with the traditional manufacturing technology; on the other hand, there is no a mature business model. The mode of traditional manufacturing, such as producing equipment and selling equipment is obviously not suitable for 3D printing industry, so, how can we adjust our strategy, and effectively open the application market?

Technology Seminar--the Technology Road-map of 3D Printing
Compared with traditional manufacturing technology, 3D printing is a frontier advanced manufacturing technology, however, how to combine the technology with market is a difficult problem. And the technical route of 3D printing should pay close attention to the application market changes, and lead the expansion of application market. If we cannot quickly open the application market of 3D printing in three to five years, 3D printing may be replaced by more advanced technology in the future.

Opening Ceremony and Theme Report--Innovating a Good Life with 3D Printing
3D printing technology has attracted wide attention from all circles of society in recent years and this technology is facing a good opportunity to make great progress. But how to depict the future blueprint of 3D printing to users and society, how to scientifically apply 3D printing technology to biological medicine and cultural creativity, how to implement the “3D printing, innovation unlimited” as well as the aims of innovation life.
Ideological Debates--the Comparative Advantage of 3D Printing?
It seems that the development of 3D printing enters?into the mistaken?position, the social impression is 3D printing seems able to do anything and omnipotent, while actually 3D printing technology can not replace traditional manufacturing technology in most areas, so the key to the development of 3D printing is playing its comparative advantage, and finding the market orientation of their own.

Dialogue--the Trend of 3D Printing
Looking from the history of future development of 3D printing technology, the present 3D printing is still in the primary stage of development as a whole, will also combine with more closely with the Internet of things, big data, cloud computing and other advanced technology, and become a part of the future intelligent manufacturing platform.
