SINGAPORE – From the printing of synthetic skin tissue for ethical drug testing to making spare parts for port equipment, the Republic has pushed for the growth of 3D printing in industries here.
The one-week event at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre brings together over 300 local and international delegates who will explore 3D-printing tech start-ups involved in industries such as space and pharmaceuticals.

Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry Koh Poh Koon said that “Singapore is in a good position to adopt new technologies in 3D printing, to change, disrupt and innovate manufacturing processes for improved performance and cost advantages.”
