3D today. And tomorrow.

Kick-off meeting of basic project AGENT-3D

The kick-off meeting of AGENT-3D_Basis_Rahmenbedingungen took place in Dresden on January 11, 2016. After a brief welcome and introduction by Professor Leyens, the planned work packages were presented and detailed plans drawn up. In the following months exciting results will be generated in the following fields: future value chains, 3D printing and the law, new pathways of design, quality management, interfaces and standardization. First results will be presented at the association meeting on February 9, 2016. We wish the basic project framework team great success!
