Innovation / Projects


The emerging group BASE3D, coordinated by the CIM UPC, is a group of research centres created to promote research, technological development and innovation in 3D Printing, and which has proposed to increase the TRL (Technology Readiness Level) of various lines manufacturing of additive manufacturing technologies.

The SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital leads the project FUSE3D - Technologies for material deposition.

Fuse3D, focuses on the improvement of parts forming systems by deposition of hot material in semi-molten or pasty form applicable mainly to plastic, metal or mixed materials (plastic / metal / ceramic / inorganic). Materials that can be presented alone or hybridized to acquire new functionalities or make their processing viable by more efficient and sustainable methods, benefiting from the advantages provided by Additive Manufacturing and opening new areas of uses and applications hitherto unexplored.
