Singapore Centre for 3D Printing (SC3DP) aspires to be a national centre of excellence, to consolidate cutting edge technology and research in the area of 3D printing. With close to $150m funding secured from NRF, EDB, AStar and MOE NTU and external partners, SC3DP provides a platform that spearheads Singapore’s efforts in 3D Printing.
The centre aims to build on Nanyang Technology University’s (NTU) existing strengths and competencies in 3D printing for manufacturing and precision engineering. Currently, NTU’s capabilities in 3D printing are housed in 3 main setups:
1) NTU Additive Manufacturing Centre (NAMC): College-level research centre
2) Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech- NTU) Joint Lab in 3D Additive Manufacturing: Joint collaboration with an Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Institute
Together with a strong pool of qualified researchers and collaboration with industry partners, SC3DP will extensively improve and create innovative technologies and novel processes, contributing to manpower and talent development for growing needs. SC3DP will expand into the following key industry sectors:
The centre serves as a one stop shop for industry interaction through projects and consultations. In the long run, the centre hopes to attract leading researchers and scientists worldwide for collaborative projects, short courses, conferences and seminars.
