innovation day.

A hands-on, quick-fire forum where your teams explore
3D printing applications and case studies, and use additive innovation tools to generate their own concepts.


A hands-on 3D printing innovation day that pushes you to think big and be bold

3D printing is widely seen as a pivotal innovation technology; a key driver for businesses to stay ahead of the competition, deliver new products and amaze customers.


But leveraging the power of 3D printing to innovate new value propositions can be daunting.  For all the unique capabilities of 3D printing, most organisations don't know where and how to begin leveraging these advantages.

At RETHINK, we combine our deep 3D printing knowledge, industry experience and unique additive innovation methodologies to help you form strong, coherent and long term additive innovation and growth strategies. 

1 day


Build a business worth of
3D printing ideas, in one day


build a team that thinks additively

Give your teams the fundamental knowledge of 3D printing they need to create concepts and solutions that make technological sense as much as they do business sense.


Quickly build 3D printing concepts

Through quick-fire and thought-provoking ideation methods, generate a wealth of 3D printing solutions that align to the needs and goals of your business.


Get your teams thinking bigger

With tools, presentations and innovation exercises, your teams will have the confidence to use 3D printing to tackle business challenges big and small.


a fast-paced, intensive 1 day dive into 3d printing innovation

A 3D printing innovation day is a fast-paced, hands-on event that pushes people to create, collaborate and challenge the status-quo.  With only 8 hours available, the day is a highly co-ordinated series of engaging activities that explores 3D printing technologies, applications and value as a tool for business innovation.   Channelling this new found knowledge and insight, individuals and teams apply Rethink additive innovation tools to create and build 3D printing concepts relevant to the business, collaborating and prioritizing these as a group.

Explore how 3D printing works, is applied, and is being leveraged by others to drive growth, reduce costs, improve efficiency and push what's possible.
