Could 3D Printing become the preferred manufacturing tool for IoT?

As IoT is becoming more and more present in our everyday life, we would like to take a closer look at the manufacturing process for those Connected Devices. Since almost any and everything can be connected nowadays, an IoT innovation needs to be out on the market as fast as possible. That’s easier said than done though since we are talking about releasing on the market and actual device, object, item, or however you want to call it: a physical part. When it comes to speed, innovation in the shape and flexibility of the supply chain, isn’t Additive Manufacturing the first thing that comes to mind? How about cost, material choices and assembly needs though?

We are gathering, with Cyant, a panel of experts to whom we will be asking those questions (and many more). Join us in Paris, June 22nd, for a #3DTalk on 3D Printing and IoT as we will explore the challenges and advantages of using 3D printing to develop prototypes but also to offer a finished product. And of course, as this is co-initiated by Women in 3D Printing, we gathered only female speakers experts on this topic, on both the panelists and moderators side of the table:

Isabelle Excoffier is the Sales Director for Connected Devices development at Inventhys. She is in charge of selling electronic, engineering and web development services regarding Connected Devices. She has a very good understanding of the IoT product development and market.

Sabine de Maussion is the co-founder of, an on-demand toy platform that combines the physicality of LEGO and the hackability of Minecraft. It can be best described as “The App Store for Toy Designs”. Sabine will share with us how 3D Printing is used in their platform and how it is combined with traditional toys.

Tatiana Reinhard provides professional training to businesses going into 3D printing. Ater co-authoring “Design for 3D printing”, translated and distributed overseas by Make, she is now prototypist at Rythm where she puts her experience at the service of the development of the Dreem product, a connected headband improving sleep.

For this #3DTalk, we are also thrilled to rely on a local team of amazing moderators: Mathilde Berchon, Corporate & Events Lead at TechShop – Ateliers Leroy Merlin, and Annabelle Drault, ENT Project Leader at BIOMODEX.

This #3DTalk panel is hosted by the School42 and the student society Code[Her]. 42 is the first tuition-free coding school in France. Many aspects of this school make it unique: the school is open 24/7, and all the school pedagogy relies on peer learning. Besides prospective students are not expect to own any form of diploma. 42 is also proud to host the first Street Art Museum in Paris. Code[Her] is a student society promoting gender diversity within the school and in the Tech world in general.

We are also thrilled to count on Sculpteo‘s sponsorship for this event. Sculpteo is a global leader in digital manufacturing based in Paris and San Francisco. The company provides professional online 3D printing and laser cutting services for on-demand production of prototypes, individual products as well as short-run manufacturing. Sculpteo provides access to a wide range of materials, finishes, and techniques, as well as superior optimization tools for file analysis and repair. With factories in Europe and the United States, Sculpteo offers fast turnaround and worldwide delivery

#3DTalk panels are open to everyone: men and women, kids and adults, novice and experts in 3D Printing. Monthly events are organized in San Francisco, New York area and Paris, France all year long, so come and join us on June 22nd in Paris! Thank you to 3D Printing Industry for covering this event as well!

This #3DTalk will be live streamed via our Facebook page, 3DTalkEvent. Tune in at 7:30pm CEST on June 22!

If you are in Paris that day, we recommend attending in person to experience the #3DTalk at its fullest. RSVP here.
