Vision & Goals

France Additive federates the actors of the French 3D printing ecosystem who share the values of openness and transversality. Founded in 1992, the association has had a strong ambition for French 3D printing since its inception: to structure the ecosystem, pool knowledge and skills in order to set up joint actions that are recognised and supported by the public authorities.

France Additive’s vision is supported by its members.



Delivering value to members

France Additive’s priority objective for 2020-2021 is to bring value to its members by putting in place the tools and animation to federate the network, share knowledge and give rise to common projects.


Bringing actions to the attention of public authorities

France Additive is actively working to have 3D printing recognised and integrated into the actions of the public authorities. The objective is to federate the ecosystem in order to structure the sector at the national level.


Assises 2021, the highlight of the ecosystem

France Additive is organising the 25th edition of the European Rapid Prototyping Conference in 2021, a real highlight for the 3D printing community from industry, research and entrepreneurship.
