Towards a Member Driven Trade Association for the European Additive Manufacturing Business Community

Thank you for your interest in the 3D Printing Association (3DPA). We are a start-up association with the mission to provide an independent, member driven platform to advance the additive manufacturing industry in the wider Europe.

Our vision is based on the following principles:

  • The B2B point of reference

    To be the B2B point of reference for companies in the Additive Manufacturing business to connect, network, interact, share information and collaborate on common objectives

  • Voice of the additive manufacturing eco-system

    To be the voice of the additive manufacturing eco-system on regulatory affairs, awareness and education

  • Healthy development of additive manufacturing

    To be the leading platform that contributes to a healthy development of additive manufacturing

  • A professional association structure

    To provide a transparent, member driven and professionally supported association structure

In case of questions, do not hesitate to contact Astrid Lejeune or Jules Lejeune at +31 70 312 39 25

Thank you on behalf of the 3D Printing Association!

As the business model for the relaunched 3D Printing Association, the founding Board of 3DPA ‘2.0’ is proposing the ‘satellite’ model, with three corresponding ‘Project Forums’ around the ‘Basic’ member platform.

Basic Membership
In this satellite model, the basic membership of 3DPA covers the general benefits of belonging to the organisation: listing in the Member Directory, access to the member network, listing in 3DPA’s twitter feed and reports in our monthly newsletter, preferred access to the annual Member Summit (in February-March), influence in association decision making, as well as special access to 3rd party partner programmes.

Project Forum Membership
On top of this basic, ‘passive’ membership fee, companies may apply for membership of one or more of the three Project Forums: ‘Education’, ‘Standards & Regulations’, and ‘Marketing & Communications’. These are the platforms where the actual volunteer work is done, supported by the professional organisation in The Hague. The Project Platforms will initiate and drive the joint programmes in the respective areas of interest to the European Additive Manufacturing community. Representation on and participation in a Project Forum will therefore require a minimum level of competence on the areas of interest discussed in the Forums, in order to ensure the reciprocity of the Forum.

For a summary of the outlines of each of the 4 member platforms, see the following charts:

Membership fees
• For the basic membership package, a basic membership fee of € 250 excl. VAT p.p. p.a. will apply.
• Membership of a Forum applies per company or organisation and is charged at an additional fee of € 500 excl. VAT per Forum p.p.p.a. (in case a company wishes to register more than one person for a Forum, an incremental supplementary fee will be payable).
• In case of member companies joining multiple Forums and/or delegating more than one representative to individual Forum(s), discounted rates may apply.

For more information, please contact the 3DPA secretariat at tel. +31 70 312 39 25 and ask for Astrid Lejeune or Jules Lejeune.
