Posted · Talking additive | The 3D printing podcast



Many people turn to podcasts to change lonely commutes into enriching journeys and fill isolated moments during the day with inspirational and colourful stories. We have many stories to tell and interesting topics to explore, and we want to do this with you! 

Talking Additive is the 3D printing podcast where we explore the impact of additive manufacturing with business innovators. The show is hosted by Matt Griffin and brought to you by Ultimaker. 



Today we launch our channel with 3 compelling episodes, and we will add new episodes every 2 weeks on Tuesday. They’re available on TalkingAdditive.com and major podcast directories, such as Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher and TuneIn. 


  • Episode 1: The 3 stages of adopting additive, with Matthew Forrester, L’Oréal 
  • Episode 2: Application-driven materials, with Danielle Glasbergen-Benning, DSM 
  • Episode 3: The future of manufacturing 
  • Episode 4: Roadmaps for 3D printing in education
  • Episode 5: Materials compounding and future of FFF materials, with Thomas Collet, LEHVOSS Group
  • Episode 6: AM in the defense industry and STEM education, with CAPT Brad Baker, US Naval Academy
  • Episode 7Motion plastics: unlocking new functionality for 3D printed parts, with Niklas Eutebach, Igus
  • Episode 8: 3D printing in the food and beverages industry


Episode 1:
In our first episode, we visit L’Oréal headquarters in Clichy, France to sit down with Matthew Forrester, the company’s Additive Manufacturing Technical Manager. This week, he tells us about the three stages of adopting additive manufacturing: prototyping, plants, and production. You can find it here.


Episode 2: 
Danielle Glasbergen-Benning is an Application Development Specialist for DSM Additive Manufacturing. This week, Danielle explains the process of translating application needs into material solutions, with insight into recent cutting-edge projects made possible by their portfolio of materials, which are available for open platform professional 3D printers. You can find this episode here.


Episode 3: 
In our third episode, Ultimaker’s team shares insight into the evolving role of FFF 3D printing, both in manufacturing and design. Our guests from Ultimaker include:

  • Paul Heiden, Senior Vice President of Product Management,
  • Merijn Neeleman, Portfolio Development Manager,
  • Rohit Jhamb, Director of Global Research and Analytics.  

In this interview, they discuss the role of additive in LEAN manufacturing, digital distributed manufacturing, the future of the supply chain, and how production processes evolve when companies adopt 3D printing in their product development and fulfilment pipelines. You can find the third episode here.


Episode 4:

In this episode, we speak with educators about how adopting additive manufacturing has changed the ways we learn, overcome challenges, and innovate within education. We speak with: 

  • Tim Pula from Spark!Lab at the Smithsonian,
  • Melodie Yashar from SEAarch+,
  • Glenn Walters from UNC Chapel Hill
