Interreg 2Seas 3D&FPP
The 3D&FPP project researches the integration of post-processing and 3D metal printing, especially for high precision parts. In 2016 this project was granted funding from the Interreg 2 Seas programme 2014-2020 co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. 3D&FPP aims to result in a reduction of production time of 50% and a reduction of production cost of 30% by developing a flexible and affordable post processing solution.
In the afternoon of September 19th, 2019, the 3D&FPP partnership proudly presented the results of their research into integrating 3D metal printing and flexible post-processing. In the course of the research the state of art was assessed, and the requirements defined resulting in a possible concept for a flexible post processing solution. This solution was then further developed.
Closure of 3D&FPP project
In the coming months, the algorithm will be further tuned and validated. The validation of the solution will provide a view on the achieved reduction in production time and costs. This validation is the last stage of the project and the 3D&FPP projects consequently ends.
