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, and that it will do so by executing projects that total a global investment of about € 3.7 million.

For this, 4 projects have been promoted:

  • LIGHT3D: Laser and Other Light Technologies, led by LEITAT.        
  • FUSE3D: Technologies for semi-phase material deposition, led by HSJD.        
  • INK3D: Technologies for the deposition of continuous inks, led by the UPC BBT research group.
  • HYBRI3D: Technologies for multi material hybridization, which we lead from the CIM UPC.        

It is 50% co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund 2014-20 of Catalonia with the support of the Department of Research and Universities.
