Internship – 3D Printing Application Engineer

Additive Center was founded in 2018 as an engineering and consultancy firm to support companies with the implementation of 3D printing as an industrial production technology. To support this process we have developed various services, such as an accelerator program, AM training, engineering and a global 3D printing network. As we are expanding our engineering service we are looking for a talented industrial engineer to join our team for an internship.


Your assignment as a 3D printing engineer is to develop a demonstrator part for the use of topological optimization in the machinery industry. In collaboration with our customer you will identify an existing part/assembly to be redesigned for 3D printing. After the selection you will redesign the part (including Topological Optimization) and make a comparison between the conventionally produced part and your redesign.

Some of the topics:

  • Identify parts/assemblies to be redesigned for 3D printing
  • Redesign parts using Fusion 360 and Topological optimization software
  • Make a business case of both the old design and the redesigned part.
  • Active communication towards our customer on the progress of the project
  • Ensure optimum printability by partnering with our 3D printing production network
  • 3D print your design

Next to your main assignment you will support other customers with smaller inquiries.

Recognize yourself?

  • Solving technical problems is your hobby

  • Passionate about 3D printing / Additive manufacturing

  • Skilled in topological optimization or eager to learn fast

  • Good communicator

  • Mechanical engineering / Industrial engineering study

  • Pro: Experience with Metal 3D printing (SLM)

What we offer

We offer an internship in a young, fast growing and dynamic company based in Eindhoven at the Brainport Industries Campus. The campus is also called the Factory of the Future. During your internship you will have the opportunity and freedom to develop yourself in industrial 3D printing as well as Topological Optimization.
