Welcome Message

Welcome to ‘The 2nd International Conference on Design for 3D Printing (ICD3DP)’, organized by Smart Additive Manufacturing Research Association of the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers (KSME) and Singapore Centre for 3D Printing (SC3DP) at Nanyang Technological University. We extend our sincere gratitude to all the participants for joining us in this conference, which will take place from October 18 to 21, 2023, in Jeju, South Korea.

The conference offers an excellent platform for all the participants to discuss the future trends, challenges, and roles of 3D printing (additive manufacturing) including design, materials, manufacturing, remanufacturing, repair, sustainable applications, and new case studies. Throughout the conference period, several interesting papers, including 1 plenary paper, 3 keynote papers and 1 invited paper, will be presented in both oral and poster sessions, giving participants from academia, industries, and research institutions across the globe an opportunity to network and collaborate.

Jeju Island is renowned worldwide for its serene and calming environment, and we hope that all participants will find the conference to be exciting and make new connections through personal interaction. To facilitate networking and collaboration, formal and informal social periods will be scheduled.

We express our heartfelt gratitude to the keynote speakers who will be sharing their valuable insights despite their busy schedules. Although the pandemic has made it challenging for researchers worldwide to meet and hold in-person academic conferences, we hope that ICD3DP 2023 will be a meaningful and rewarding experience for all participants.

Once again, we welcome all participants to ICD3DP 2023 and hope that everyone has an enjoyable and productive time during the conference period on Jeju Island.
