ACCESS-3DP is a transnational project funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

The project aims at taking Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) as a new, disruptive technology under the umbrella of Advanced Manufacturing in order to set out frameworks to train and upskill workers in the craft and creative industries.

It is implemented by 5 different organisations in France, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain.

3D printed steaks

Barcelona-based startup Novameat, which developed its technology in 2018, is using its 3D printing technology to manufacture vegetarian “steaks” that it hopes will reach the mass market next year. They are planning to sell its “steaks” directly to consumers and to businesses such as restaurants interested in producing plant-based meat.

The company uses 3D technology to test recipes, introducing ingredients through capsules because it is a cheaper process than mass-producing. Once a model is considered successful, it could then be produced on a larger scale in bigger machines not using 3D technology, manufacturing up to 500 kg of fake meat per hour. The company also said it was producing fake meat for environmental reasons.
