It focuses on establishing and expanding the business under the Forward AM brand with advanced materials, system solutions, components and services in the field of 3D printing. BASF 3D Printing Solutions is organized into startup-like structures to serve customers in the dynamic 3D printing market. The company supports customers from first idea to printed part – with deep simulation expertise, material know-how and one of the largest portfolios in the industry.
BASF 3D Printing Solutions cooperates closely with the global research platforms and application technologies of various departments at BASF and with research institutes, universities, startups and industrial partners.
