by Pawel Slusarczyk, President of the Board, CD3D Sp. z o.o.

  1. Introduction: short history of CD3D and The Open Bioprinting Cluster
  2. The historical approach: the development of the 3D printing industry and perspectives for the development of the bioprinting market
  3. Three pillars of technology development: the meaning of hardware, materials and software for creation of new kind of medical applications



What drives you?
The idea that I can make something no one did before

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
They will probably hear something that they do not expect and will not hear from anyone else

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
3D printing technology with use of brand new materials in liquid or semi-liquid form

What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Possibility to create applications with completely new physical properties (soft, durable, biocompatibiles, biocompatible etc.)

What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
The usual suspects: time and money

“Special Quote”
It has to start somewhere. It has to start somehow. What better place than this? What better time than now?
