CTO / Co-founder Secured 3d

3D Print Conference in Almaty was an amazing event! People may ask, what special is about 3D printing in a developing country such as Kazahstan? Developing countries sometimes adopt and drive innovative technologies like 3D printing even faster than the reachest countries - Kazahstan and 3D Print Conference is a very good example.

Most of the speakers were 3D printing business owners, so participants got a firsthand message. As soon as 3D printing is not binding businesses to a special location, anyone, anywhere in the world can make successfull 3D printing business and the rest can utilize all the benefits. For a long time designers, prototyping bereaus and inventors experienced a huge void in rapid manufacturing, as before you could produce parts in a fully automatic way only in a number of developed countries, now it is a time when anyone, anywhere can bring his/her idea to the market in a matter of days.

3D printing and distributed manufacturing is conquering the world! Smile Expo did a great job organizing the event where professionals from different parts of the world could share experiences and ideas.

Many thanks to Smile Expo!
