About Réseau Québec-3D

As part of its mission to make Québec industry more competitive and boost growth by supporting innovation, productivity, and exports, CRIQ (Centre de recherche industrielle du Québec) has carried out studies on additive manufacturing.

What did it find? It’s time to go 3D!

Press Conference

In October 2014, Québec’s Minister of the Economy, Innovation, and Exports Jacques Daoust announced that Réseau Québec-3D was being set up and tasked CRIQ with coordinating the 3D printing network. Réseau Québec-3D seeks to pool stakeholder 3D printing expertise in order to provide complementary and diverse services ranging from contract implementation to training highly qualified staff, helping Québec take its place in this burgeoning sector.

"CRIQ shares our government’s desire to boost Québec’s expertise in the 3D printing industry,” said Jacques Daoust. “More than ever, our focus is on innovation and integrating new technologies to ensure our economy continues to grow and prosper. We must spur on and further support development and use of this technology within our Québec businesses and organizations."

Additive manufacturing in Québec

The ties between various stakeholders in the additive-manufacturing industry in Québec tend to be created by time-limited collaborative research. Québec already has a solid skills base for software development, simulation, modelling, industrial design, laser parts and systems, and material science and technology, but today the challenge is to bring all these elements together to develop an additive-manufacturing supply chain.

Réseau Québec-3D: an additive-manufacturing network

The Réseau Québec-3D network is helping rally a community around additive manufacturing. Interested parties include stakeholders from aeronautics, ground transportation, and the energy industry, as well as mould manufacturers, machining companies, and people from the medical and dental sectors. University, college, and industry researchers are also taking part, along with 3D printing manufacturers and manufacturers and distributors of the raw materials used for 3D printing and metal-processing and composite material companies.

Réseau Québec-3D is a one-stop solution for companies looking to...

  • Reach out to stakeholders along the 3D printing production chain, from sizing up a company’s needs to delivering a project
  • Acquire the skills required to efficiently use the new technology in their manufacturing activities
  • Stay informed and attend conferences and training sessions
  • Access additive-manufacturing products and services across Québec
  • Enjoy the benefits of additive manufacturing, such as producing parts in small batches
  • Consult a pool of experts who can walk them through innovation projects and answer their questions
  • Go 3D!

Who can join Réseau Québec-3D?

  • Businesses of all sizes
  • Applied-research centres
  • University and college research centres
  • Product and service providers
  • Students.

Proud partner of Canada Makes

The Centre de recherche industrielle du Québec (CRIQ) and Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) have concluded a partnership agreement that promises joint knowledge-sharing about additive manufacturing and assistance for Québec companies to finance research and development projects. This partnership will also pave the way for collaborative projects, offer preferred rates for Réseau Québec-3D members to attend CME events and promote the activities of both organizations.
