NEW DATES for the 3rd edition of ADDITIVE DAYS COMING SOON
Additive Days is an international annual event, taking place in Sofia, Bulgaria. The forum is dedicated to knowledge-sharing, networking and brainstorming inspirations.
The Balkan forum for additive manufacturing is a propitious opportunity for starting new collaborations and initiatives. The event aims to facilitate the better understanding of the role 3D printing has to play in different areas such as engineering, medicine, business, science, education, architecture, design, fashion, etc.
The organizer and initiator of the event Additive days is B2N – the official representative for Bulgaria and the Balkans of leading companies in the additive industries like Ultimaker (The Netherlands), Formlabs (USA), MarkForged (USA), Artec Group (Luxemburg), SolidThinking
(USA). B2N strives to expand its business by consolidating the various communities in the industry, as well as by offering innovative approaches to 3D printing.

3 October, 18:15-19:45, 3D creativity laboratorium at John Atanasoff’s innovation forum
This workshop targets artistic children. Its aim is to stimulate their creativity and provides them with ideas how to recycle objects from our everyday life and how to creative new and interesting pieces of art with application, different than their original use. With a pinch of 3D printing, a spoonful of electronics and a mouthful of inspiration, we will turn toothbrushes into tiny robots til the end of the workshop.
3 October, 16:30-18:00, 3D creativity laboratorium at John Atanasoff innovation forum.
The workshop is focused on teachers and academics, who are always searching for new and innovative ways of introducing technology to children and of stimulating their creativity. You will understand how to include the use of a 3D printer in the study programme and will learn about interesting school projects, realised with the help of Ultimaker.
The workshop will be held in English. Lecturer: Roberto Vdovic, Fablab.hr
5 october, 14:00 – 15:30, 3D creativity laboratorium at John Atanasoff’s innovation forum.
3D scanning is gaining more and more importance in areas such as manufacturing, the automobile industry and aviation. Regardless of its use (reverse engineering, comparison of ready end products and their digital projects or 3D documentation), it is a useful tool for each specialist. This workshop aims to give you the means how to scan 3D objects and to turn the scanned data into editable CAD files. Next step of the process is design optimization and 3D printing of the end object.
The workshop will be held in English
Lecturers: Samuil Topalov, B2N and Felix Radisch, Altair solidThinking
6 october, 10:30 – 12:00, laboratorium, parter, room 125, for children 10=14 years old.
In this workshop, the children will get to know the logic behind the work of functional mechanisms, and how to create functional parts by themselves with the help of a 3D printer, in order to build a small robot. Taking part in this workshop will inspire them to experiment and will boost their confidence to dare, create and invent. The children will work in small teams of 2-3 and will decide together as a team which model they will create together.
Lecturers: Assoc. Prof. Ivan Chavdarov, BAS and Ivelin Stoyanov
