Dassault Systèmes is proud to partner with Women in 3D Printing and support its first annual conference, called TIPE 3D Printing. With a focus on case studies, additive manufacturing user applications, visionary talks on the future, and people shaping the industry, the TIPE 3D Printing conference curates an inspirational all-female agenda of speakers and panelists.

The TIPE 3D Printing conference – covering the Technology, Industry, People and Economics shaping the additive manufacturing industry – takes place virtually over 2-days, January 27-28, 2021 from 7am PST – 4:30pm PST. For more information or to register go to 

According to Women in 3D Printing founder, Nora Toure:

“With a mission of ‘Promoting, supporting, and inspiring women using Additive Manufacturing technologies, Women in 3D Printing seeks to foster a more diverse industry. Within six years of existence, Women in 3D Printing managed to grow from a simple blog to one of the largest Additive Manufacturing community worldwide, with over 75 chapters in 28 countries. The TIPE 3D Printing conference is built by and for this community of 10,000+, and features an inspirational all-female agenda of speakers over a 2-day global conference, which is a world’s premiere for the industry.”
