ENCOMPASS project has successfully reached its end!


ENCOMPASS project has successfully reached its end, with the final review meeting between all partners and the EC!

In these COVID times, we kept our safety distance and met on-line.
It went surprisingly well, no lost connections, no frozen videos – just as we were all together in a room! The feedback from our Project Officer and the reviewers was very positive.
The results presented are very promising for the Additive Manufacturing sector!

We are sure we will have the opportunity to meet each other soon!

Evaluation of the DIT for Additive Manufacturing


From the 28th to the 30th of January, a training and evaluation session of the Design Interrogation Tool (DIT) for Additive Manufacturing, took place in Manufacturing The Manufacturing Technology Center (MTC) facilities.

EWF and FCA/CRF participated in this session. There was an exchange of views regarding the layout and features of the tool.

The project is reaching its end and DIT is almost finished. It will have a huge impact helping Designers to optimize their Designs for Powder Bed Fusion!



ENCOMPASS is currently at FORMNEXT, in Frankfurt Germany! The ENCOMPASS project which has an Integrated Design Decision Support (IDDS) system is optimising AM post processing, enabling an average of 42% reduction in time from “design to piece”.

Come visit us at booth 11.0-B71 until this Friday the 22nd and feel free to ask us any questions regarding this system! #manufacturing #3dprinting #encompass #postprocessing #formnext2019

ENCOMPASS M24 Meeting – 2 years of success, one more to go!


ENCOMPASS consortium has joined in November 2018 for its semester meeting. A lot is going on now, as all pieces of software are almost fully developed, it is integration work that is leading the path. All partners have been represented during the meeting, and a lot of fruitful discussions took place. Next step will be the validation of use cases. As usual, exploitation and dissemination were not forgotten – with the end of the project approaching the route to market is a key driver for the finalisation of the business plan.



ENCOMPASS was present at the biggest Additive Manufacturing fair in Europe – FORMNEXT – (13th to 16th November) in Frankfurt, Germany. All the big players were represented and it was a big opportunity to capture interest in the project results. A joint workshop to “Support the uptake of AM in companies” with another EU funded project, AMable, took place in the fair.
