3D PRINTING EDUCATION & RESEARCH ASSOCIATION is a non profit organisation  founded in 2019 by a group of researchers, Academicians, Doctors, Scientist, Engineers, Designers, Software cos, Additive Manufacturing companies and technology companies. The intent of forming this association is to recognise 3D printing technology as an industry across sectors in India. The Association will align with all the policy makers from each Ministries of the Government of India to get the technology its presence and importance initiated for recognition in each of the sectors. Ministry of Industries, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Medical & Health, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Skill Development, Ministry of Small & Medium Enterprise, Ministry of Science & Technology and others relevant Ministries for policy initiatives.  The Association will also be a catalyst as a global representation in Research, development, education, skill development, Human resource, Training  with new initiatives, which will benefit all the sectors. The sectors of focus will be Dental, Maxillofacial, Prosthesis, Orthopedic, Medical devices, Tissue Engineering, Lifescience, Pharma, Aerospace, Defense, Engineering, Electronics, Automobile, Tooling, FMCG, Architecture, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Construction, Design, Jewelry, fashion, Art, Entertainment, Education, research  and other relevant industries benefiting from the technology.

3DPERA will also evolve as an integrated platform for all the major industry associations in India and Globally to work with them for benefiting their respective industries.

We would also include start-ups and enterprises with a focus to push the industry forward by evangelizing the concept of Additive Manufacturing in India. The association is aimed to bring together all stakeholders to a common platform and promote overall growth of Additive manufacturing technology in India by promoting collaboration and education thereby also addressing needs of all members of the Industry irrespective of their affiliation or their company size.  Education, Research and development is also the prime focus of the association, which will institute a conscious effort in working closely with the respective research institutions and scientist to develop new means and methods to achieve the best in class materials, machines, software and other prerequisites.


Our Aim is to represent 3D Printing technology and the industry’s viewpoint and work with various government bodies, apex industry chambers in formulation of policies and rules on the challenges and opportunities of the industry, that may help promote and protect the interests of the Industry in its endeavor to serve the consumers better.

Our Aim is to work with the facilitators across industries, trade bodies and Industry association in framing, development and dissemination of best practices related to environment, quality, manufacturing, and other relevant areas.
