BE-AM | Symposium

BE-AM is a symposium and exhibition that brings together experts in 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing from industry, academia, design and architecture. It is a platform to share and discuss ideas, projects and technologies. The event is hosted by the Formnext fair in Frankfurt/Main, and organized by Prof. Ulrich Knaack, Prof. Oliver Tessmann, Dr.-Ing. Philipp Rosendahl, Dr. Bastian Wibranek and Chris Borg Costanzi of the Technical University of Darmstadt.
