The seminar itself will dissect 3D printing technology, its place in the manufacturing sector and its ongoing growth across many industries due to its ability to create small batch custom manufacturing in a much more sustainable and accessible way. It will delve into GROHE’s application of the technique and how provide the opportunity to procure customised products for bespoke client specifications in the future.

The session also aims to shed light on the positive sustainability impact 3D printing can have on reducing CO2 emissions and saving water thanks to less wastage and more efficient use of raw materials.

Glen Wilson, Head of Projects at GROHE UK, said: ‘Now we have acquired first-hand experience and understanding of 3D printing, we want to share this knowledge with professional architects to challenge the status quo around manufacturing processes. The seminar aims to help inspire a more widespread shift in thinking when it comes to considering sustainable options. The more information architects have at their fingertips, the more they will understand the potential of this technology for bathroom specification.’
