Das Center for Digital Fabrication ist ein Kompetenzentrum am Lehrstuhl für Wirtschaftsinformatik und Systementwicklung der Universität Würzburg. Wir beschäftigen uns mit der Technologie additiver Fertigungsverfahren – auch umgangssprachlich bekannt als „3D-Druck“ – und deren ökonomischen Potenzialen. Das CEDIFA steht als Ansprechpartner für Unternehmen unterschiedlichster Branchen zur Verfügung, die sich für den Einsatz additiver Fertigungstechnologie interessieren. Setzen Sie sich bereits heute mit den Potenzialen dieser Technologien auseinander. Additive Fertigung bietet kein „Plug & Play“ – umso wichtiger ist es, die notwendige Lernkurve zu berücksichtigen und frühzeitig aktiv zu werden. Im Vordergrund müssen jedoch stets Kunde und das positive Kosten/Nutzen-Verhältnis stehen. Gehen Sie stets von der Frage aus, wo bislang unadressierte Kundenbedarfe bestehen und wo die Vorteile der additiven Fertigung gezielt einen Nutzen stiften können. Eine Zusammenarbeit mit dem CEDIFA ist u.a. in folgenden Bereichen möglich: Bilaterale oder konsortiale Beratungs- und F&E-Projekte Workshops, Seminare und Tagungen Betreuung von Bachelor- und Masterarbeiten sowie Dissertationen

"The Additive Manufacturing Users Group's origins date back to the early 1990s when the founding industry users group was called 3D Systems North American Stereolithography Users Group, a users group solely focused on the advancement of stereolithography (SL) use with the owners and operators of 3D Systems' equipment. Today, AMUG educates and supports users of all additive manufacturing technologies. The primary charter of the group remains the same, but its members are much more diversified, global and focused in advancing additive manufacturing technology for rapid manufacturing and prototyping.With AMUG's expanded range, operators/owners of any commercial technology — stereolithography, selective laser sintering, 3D printing, DMD, DMLS, FDM, LS, SL, SLM, PolyJet, and more * — can benefit from the information exchange and professional network that AMUG offers."
