The 2022 TIPE 3D Printing conference, a virtual event set to feature talks from over 100 additive manufacturing industry leaders from around the world, is set to take place online from 18 – 20 January.

Organised by Women in 3D Printing and featuring a line-up of solely women speakers from the additive manufacturing industry, the event will cover topics around the Technology, Industry, People, and Economics of 3D Printing.

This year, the event boasts three keynote speakers, including Anouk Wipprecht [above], a Dutch FashionTech designer, who combines robotics, sensors, AI and couture, and has partnered with brands such as Intel, Audi and Materialise.

Julia Koerner, founder of JK Design and an assistant adjunct professor and director Summer Programs at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design, is an award-winning designer working at the convergence of architecture, product and fashion design – specialising in additive manufacturing and robotic technology.

The final keynote speaker is Reshma Saujani, CEO of Marshall Plan for Moms and Founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has spent more than a decade building movements to fight for women and girls’ economic empowerment, working to close the gender gap in the tech sector, and most recently advocating for policies to support moms impacted by the pandemic.

Also presenting is DEVELOP3D’s own SJ, who alongside Alex Kingsbury, an additive manufacturing industry fellow at RMIT University, Melbourne, will be discussing navigating the gender pay gap that exists in parts of the additive manufacturing industry.


On the third day of the TIPE conference, two virtual career fairs will take place to support North American and European employers. Hiring companies include: 3Yourmind, DMG Mori, EOS, GE, Link3D, Mantle and more.

“With a mission of ‘Promoting, supporting, and inspiring women using Additive Manufacturing technologies,’ Women in 3D Printing seeks to foster a more diverse industry,” says Wi3DP founder Nora Toure.

“The TIPE 3D Printing conference is built by and for this community of 23,000+, and features an inspirational all-women agenda of speakers.

“TIPE 2022 welcomes everyone and we certainly hope to see you at the 2nd edition of this global virtual annual meeting that is now becoming a Movement.”
