Rapid Design Prototyping and Manufacturing Conference

3D Printing

The RDPM Conference is well established as a platform for the dissemination of research in the field of additive manufacturing/3D printing and associated technologies. This year, the conference will be hosted by the College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences at Brunel University, Uxbridge, on Thursday 4th and Friday 5th April 2019. 

The conference is open to a number of complimentary disciplines within the wider subject area of additive manufacturing and encourages presentations from interdisciplinary researchers and multidisciplinary projects. The conference is targeted towards PhD students and early career researchers (although more senior academics and industrialists are welcome) active in all aspects of additive manufacturing. 

The first conference was held in 1995, organised by the Centre for Rapid Design and Manufacture (CRDM) and hosted by Buckinghamshire College (now Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College), High Wycombe. In the following years, it alternated periodically between High Wycombe and Lancaster University, Lancaster, and more recently in 2015 at the Loughborough Design School, Loughborough University and in 2017 at Northumbria University. RDPM2019 sees the conference continuing to make its way around the United Kingdom by heading south, to be hosted by Brunel University in Uxbridge. The conference will be held within the new STEM centre at Brunel, located in the Wilfred Brown Building. 

Over the past 30+ years that the technology we now know as additive manufacturing has been around, researchers have developed the discipline to be very broad, as is witnessed by the array of presentations that are given every year at the conference. These 30+ years have shown constant innovation in every aspect of product development, engineering design and manufacturing technology. Sharing these developments is key to the ethos of the conference - a platform for like minded people to meet, share ideas and even start collaborative research projects.
