PrintCity Network

Through our PrintCity Network programme, you’ll develop an understanding and knowledge of the latest additive manufacturing (3D printing) technologies and processes.

You’ll explore market trends and look at the opportunities within these for your small business. You’ll use this knowledge to identify how you can use 3D printing in your business to create new products and processes.

A two-phase programme that will take you on a journey to learn about additive manufacturing, from current best practice to design ideas, and how your business could use 3D printing innovation.

During the programme, you’ll develop a design project specific to your business and you’ll present this to your peers at the end of the first phase.

Some businesses will then be eligible to progress to phase two, where they will receive technical assistance to drive their new innovation forward.

*only available to SME’s within the Greater Manchester Area.
