Flanders, the northern part of Belgium, is a key economic region in Europe, with an export-based economy. Flanders has been a major player in European trade since the Middle Ages. Today Flanders continues this trading tradition, being the world’s No. 1 exporter per capita. Flanders is particularly active in high added-value, quality products and services.
Flam3D - short for Flanders Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing Ecosystem - is the independent Flemish platform for all stakeholders active in 3D / AM in Flanders. 3D printing is neither a hype nor a threat: it can be a special addition to traditional technologies. Flam3D wants to look for value chains to support smart and internal innovation inside and outside Flanders, and both inside and outside the network. By expanding the Flam3D network, our members gain access to market information and business opportunities. This way, we are working to ensure that Flanders continues to play a leading role in the development of 3D printing.
