Recently, global manufacturing paradigm has experienced a revolutionary transition towards entering a new paradigm called Industry 4.0. This is due to introduction of 3D printing, also called Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology which is gradually replacing traditional manufacturing methods. AM utilizes digital 3D CAD data to fabricate a part through layer-wise stacking mechanism (often, termed as 3D printing). Apart from polymers/composites, the scope of AM is extended to fabricate metallic and ceramic components as well.

AM clutches innovation in digital processes, communications, imaging, architecture and engineering to provide digital flexibility and efficiency to manufacturing operations. Recently, India has realized the need of exploring this emerging technology in all segments including defense and public sectors, especially within the nation&rsquos small, medium and large-scale industries to keep pace with the new manufacturing paradigm (Industry 4.0). In the strategy paper, documented by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), domestic manufacturers are encouraged to set up operations by exploring available resources and collaborating with foreign companies who are presently known as the leaders of AM throughout the Globe. It is believed that many possibilities of AM are to be unfolded in near future. This will definitely push forward the national program MAKE IN INDIA

The Workshop on 3D Printing: State-of Art and Future Prospects (3DP-2023) is focused on the global knowledge transfer and networking of professionals involved in additive manufacturing technology domain. The course includes expert lectures from industry and academic from around the world, discussion on additive layer technologies and additive metal processes, latest developments in 3D printing and metal-based additive manufacturing, application potential of additively manufactured products in defense, aerospace, automotive and biomedical sectors.

Academicians from premier institutions like IITs, NITs, State/ Centrally Funded Universities, foreign universities, experts from Industries as well as R&D Organizations having expertise and experience in relevant domain knowledge are to be invited as Resource Person for this workshop.
