3D Printing Cultural Museum, Shanghai

3d Printing Museum Shanghai

Around a month ago Doug Baird was in Shanghai for the Farsoon Global Partners Summit and was also visiting the TCT Asia Pacific 2018 trade exhibition. While in Shanghai Doug also visited the 3D Printing Cultural Museum in Baoshan dedicated to the history and future of the 3D printing industry in China spread across a large 6 floor building. China is sending a clear message that it’s taking its national 3D printing culture very seriously.

There are nine functional spaces housed in the museum serving as an historical and cultural education and provide specialised cultural experience. The 3D Printing Cultural Museum displays a vast collection of 3D printing technology from various fields of design and application. Metal works of art making use of selective laser melting (SLM) can be viewed alongside 3D printed nylon furniture, 3D printed ceramics, and dazzling 3D printed jewellery in all shapes and sizes.

The museum from the entrance through to the cafe has the wow factor and includes samples of 3D printing from science, technology, and design. Any one curious about 3D printing should visit the museum as China is investing heavily in the 3d printing industry and its a great lesson and example of the integration between culture and industry within China today.

Farsoon Global Partner Summit

Doug Baird recently attended the Farsoon Global Partner Summit meeting with other Farsoon suppliers from around the world in Shanghai. There is exciting news with Farsoon developing new partnerships across the globe.

Farsoon has established a number of partnerships in the industry since 2015 including long-term partner Laser Sinter Service (LSS) in Germany, chemical giant, BASF which led to the development of its PA6 material, and Prodways resulting in the launch of a new machine brand, Prodways powered by Farsoon. It’s also one of only two labs in China to receive the National Additive Manufacturing Laboratory status, which allows the company to tap into resources and collaborate with other research groups within the sector.

Farsoon Technologies has also begun direct sales, training, integration, and support operations in North America with the opening of our Sales and Support office located in Round Rock, Texas, suburb of Austin and the birthplace of Selective Laser Sintering. Farsoon Technologies determined quickly that having US based operations was key to the continued growth and executional strategies in this new age of Advanced Digital MFG solutions.

A new collaboration between Swiss listed technology group Oerlikon (SWX:OERL) and industrial 3D printing solutions company Farsoon Technologies is seeking to increase adoption of additive manufacturing in China. Under the terms of the agreement, Oerlikon will become the primary metal powder supplier and global partner for Farsoon 3D printers, delivering a convenient material and hardware solution to customers.

Farsoon is now the number one SLS seller in China and the number two SLS seller globally with a 60% increase in growth in 2017. With the only “open system”, meaning you can print using other suppliers materials,  and the manufacturing the largest SLS 3D printing machine in the world (HT1000), with 60 engineers in R & D and over 300 employees Farsoon are a global 3D printing leader.

Proz3D Solutions are the distributor of the Farsoon technologies across Australia & New Zealand.
