The project strives to modernize the industry by bringing together actors in research, development and innovation (RDI) throughout Finland that develop and disseminate the use of large-scale 3D printing technology. The aim is to improve the local and national impact of these activities by combining close domestic cooperation with the best of global expertise. In practice, this means new business and business-driven renewal based on the development of skills and innovation. The project will achieve these objectives and contribute to the digitalization of manufacturing by supporting the transition to 3D printing as one of the digital manufacturing methods, the adoption of which will also contribute to the digitalization of other manufacturing methods.
