Connect to a talented and powerful network that will be impactful to both healthcare and technological worlds. Through 3DHEALS networks, members can collaborate on projects, form partnerships, and co-found companies.

Educate global communities in language people understand.

Provide high-quality content on healthcare applications using 3D printing, bioprinting/bio fabrication, and related technologies (i.e. AI/ML, material science, regenerative medicine, AR/VR, etc.) to a highly curated high-quality audience from different disciplines of the ecosystem to engage in meaningful conversations.

Discover startups/innovators. Give them a world-facing stage to be visible.

3DHEALS community events provide an effective global stage for local early adopters, innovators, and entrepreneurs. Early-stage startups can pitch in front of institutional investors both online and offline, from all over the world. 


We value leadership over hierarchy.  People who take initiatives, who go for the extra mile, who act as leaders should lead. Every 3DHEALS CM will have the opportunity to lead.

We do what we promise. We finish what we start and what we promise to deliver.

We live locally but build globally. We leverage the benefit of being a part of an international organization and reach across our borders to establish friendships, partnerships, collaborations.

We engage. We take every new connection, conversation, idea, seriously and with respect. We make our community members feel heard and understood. We are the lighthouse for our members. We are nodes of a powerful social web, with strong connections to each other in every direction.

We build. Great things take time to build. One name card, one email address, one connection at a time.

Our Journey:

As a radiologist, 3D printing really blurs the line between the digital imaging world and the physical world. Years ago,  I wanted to make my own models to help the surgeons I work with, but there was no clear pathway. In addition to cost, the software and hardware were both challenging to use. There was no instruction. That’s why I started 3DHEALS, initially a small meetup group in San Francisco, to meet people who could help me with achieving my own goal of making a model. However, very soon, the group attracted talented professions from many different disciplines: engineering, healthcare providers, entrepreneurs, scientists, and more. Everyone brings in expertise from their own background, and our meetings soon become more formally organized events, first in SF, then all over the world.

The format of having people from different backgrounds to have direct conversations with one another is well received. At 3DHEALS events, ideas can become reality, blueprints can be an actual product. Together, we share the vision that 3D Printing will be one of the major forces that will revolutionize healthcare.

In the past two years, with the help of 30+ dedicated community managers, 3DHEALS has grown from a single city to now over 20+ cities all over the world and growing. Today, we are actively building 3DHEALS both offline and online, and wish geography will no longer pose as a barrier for members in this group to connect, innovate, and succeed together. Our mission will remain to: educate, connect, and discover in healthcare 3D printing and bioprinting space.
