The 3D printing industry is expanding with new facilities unveiled by FIT AG, Dassault Systèmes, Airbus and GE Aviation.
FIT AG, a German additive manufacturing company, has lifted the curtain on its new €20 Million German headquarters which was announced back in 2015. While French company, Dassault Systèmes has launched a new site in the US at Wichita State University (WSU) along with Airbus. Also in the United States, GE Aviation has held the grand opening ceremony for a ‘Brilliant Factory’ in Muskegon, Michigan.

Dassault Systèmes’ newest 3DEXPERIENCE Center at Wichita State University is part of an ongoing collaboration with the academic institution. The French software company announced plans during Solidworks this year, to develop another separate 3DExperience center at their Boston Headquarters.

Our new 3DEXPERIENCE Center is going to help businesses solve today’s problems while training the workforce of tomorrow. The advanced manufacturing techniques, new materials research and 3D simulation innovations that are unveiled in this new facility will have an immediate impact on the aerospace industry, and will also be applicable to countless other industries across the world.

Accompanying Dassault Systèmes, aviation company Airbus has also expanded to Wichita State University’s Innovation campus. Airbus will occupy a two-story 90,000 square foot building to house 300 employees. John O’Leary, vice president of Airbus Americas Engineering, explained the location was strategic as “Wichita’s talent pool of aerospace and aviation experts is among the richest in the world.” Along with Dassault Systèmes, Airbus – as partners of WSU – will have access to research labs, meeting facilities, training and education facilities as well as the opportunity for collaboration with faculty, staff and students.
