Innovation Insights: 3D Printing

Published by Glenda Beaulieu

April 05, 2017

Presented by Canada Makes and hosted at Emily Carr University of Art and Design


Innovation Insights is a long-standing Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters event series which succeeds in demonstrating innovative technologies and manufacturing processes on-site in a manufacturing facility. Participants and hosts share a common focused goal to achieve increased productivity and profitability for their companies.

The Innovation Insights program is widely recognized throughout Canada’s manufacturing community as high-value, with practical demonstrations of manufacturing best practices in technology utilization and process management. The ultimate objective is to enhance the innovative and productive capabilities of Canadian industry.

The tours and sessions provide participants with ideas for improvement and offers learning opportunities with cross-sectorial experts. It is a learning experience for the attendees, with value-add feedback for the host.


Emily Carr University of Art + Design is one of the oldest post secondary institutions in BC and the only one that is dedicated solely to professional education and learning in the arts, media and design.

New technologies and modes of enterprise are based on open, shared platforms for making are changing the notion of what it means to mobilize expertise – to develop and implement tacit knowledge in systems of fabrication. Exemplary of this is 3D Printing and its presence as an emergent personal production platform.

As 3D technology development continues, artists and designers will no longer be limited by constraints imposed by traditional models for cultural and commercial product development and production.

Material Matters has been developed as a meeting point — an intersection of groups that catalyzes disciplines, students and faculties within Emily Carr University of Art + Design. We work with external partners who may be industry-based, NGOs, non-profit, or community groups.
