The Materialise World Conference 2015 welcomes all the world’s leading thinkers and doers involved in 3D printing, from clinical, to biomedical, to industrial, to consumer applications, to meet and exchange ideas of how 3D Printing can make a difference in their communities.
With 4 summits in 1 conference, you’re sure to leave full of ideas and inspired to create meaningful innovations through 3D Printing.
These three are my suggested sessions; although they all look interesting!
23 APRIL : Keynote Speaker
What does fashion lack? “Microcontrollers” according to Dutch based fashiontech designer and innovator Anouk Wipprecht. As she is working in the emerging field of “fashion-tech”; a rare combination of fashion design combined with engineering, science and interaction/user experience design, she created an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way.
Frederik De Wilde
24 APRIL : Art, Science and Technology: “Hacking the Universe”
Frederik De Wilde is an inter- and transdisciplinary artist, researcher, microentrepreneur, author, consultant, advisory board member, 3D modeller, animator and software developer, acting on the border of art with science and technology.
24 APRIL : From Idea to 3D Printed Shoe
Katrien Herdewyn studied electrical engineering, material sciences and obtained a master’s degree in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Together with PhD research in sciences, she specialized in fashion footwear design at fashion art academies in Belgium, London and Florence. In her collections, she experiments with new technologies and materials. She cooperates with Frederik Bussels from Visualize-to.be to translate her 3D-printable ideas into reality, mainly for the prototypes of her designs. In September 2014, Katrien founded her own commercial footwear label Elegnano, combining high tech and high heels.
