CD3D is one of the best known companies on the 3D printing market in Poland. It has been operating since January 2013, i.e. since the launch of the 3D Printing Center portal – the largest and longest-running medium dedicated to additive technologies in the country. Over the years, CD3D has enabled the emergence of the vast majority of companies operating in the 3D printing industry in Poland, as well as helped implement additive technologies to countless manufacturing and service companies.
The 3D Printing Center had a key impact on the development of the 3D printing market in Poland and the popularization of additive technologies among institutional and individual users. First presentations and descriptions of native 3D printers and profiles of companies creating them appeared on the pages of the portal. From numerous articles, readers could learn not only what 3D printing is or how 3D printers work, but also how to create and develop a business based on additive technologies.
Centrum Druku 3D
Centrum Druku 3D (3D Printing Center) is the largest website dedicated to additive technologies in Poland and the only one of the three longest operating websites of this type established in Europe. Since its debut in January 2013, it has provided the latest information on additive technologies from the country and the world, presents tests and reviews of 3D printers and consumables, and publishes opinions and analyzes on the functioning of the 3D printing market. Since 2016, the portal has been taking up the topic of using additive methods in medicine, being currently the largest medium describing such issues in Poland.
3D PRINTING CENTER
In 2016 the 3D Printing Center was launched. It is an independent platform in relation to the polish website. 50% of traffic is generated by users from the USA, and over 95% from countries other than Poland.
Training in 3D printing
Since mid-2014, CD3D has been conducting specialized training in the field of 3D printing technology. Participants of the training acquire knowledge about the methods of operation and functioning of devices using additive technologies. During the training, great emphasis is also placed on the business and commercial area of using 3D printing so that after their completion participants are ready to implement technology in their daily work. To date, we have trained hundreds of people from all possible sectors: school students (elementary / technical / high schools), university students, people starting their own businesses, engineers, managers of trading and manufacturing companies. In training, we focus on virtually all existing manufacturing techniques: 3D printing from thermoplastics, light-curing resins, powdered plastics, or powdered metal alloys.
CD3D has been providing consultations on the implementation of 3D printing technologies in enterprises, schools and universities, as well as public institutions for many years. Consultations are free – all you have to do is contact and make an appointment.
MEDICAL 3D PRINTING
In 2016, CD3D launched a department dedicated to the use of additive technologies in broadly understood medicine in the 3D Printing Center, while expanding its competences in this area. The company cooperates with the Laboratory of Individual Medical Implants located in the Laboratory of Molecular and Nanostructural Biophysics in Bionanopark in Łódź, where it has been based since autumn 2014.
