3D Printing in Luxembourg

Advantages of creating 3D printing company in Luxembourg

Overview

3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. This technology is already used in many fields and can print in plastic, metal, nylon, and over a hundred other materials.

According to Wohlers Associates, a consultancy firm, the market for 3D printers and services was worth $2.2 billion worldwide in 2012, up 29% from 2011.

 

3D Printing as a Game Changer

Instantly printing parts and entire products, anywhere in the world, is a game changer. But it doesn’t stop there. 3D printing will affect almost every aspect of industry and our personal lives:

  • Medicine with bio printers which can print human tissue;

  • Architecture with the possibility of reproducing 3D-printed models of complex architectural drawings are created quickly and inexpensively;

  • Art with digital artists creating magnificent pieces that seem almost impossible to have been made by traditional methods.

Intellectual Property Rights - Luxembourg IP Company - Managing Royalties Income

The Luxembourg tax regime aims at encouraging Luxembourg Intellectual Property (IP) companies to invest in intellectual property and R&D through an effective tax rate on IP income of below 6%.

All common Luxembourg companies developing intellectual property rights in the 3D printing space enjoy, like any others, one of the most attractive frameworks for IPR management in Europe.

 

Why 3D Printing in Luxembourg ?

More precisely, this tax regime can be used for instance on any IP rights:

  • Patents : on 3D printers or machines, which would be innovative and find an industrial application

  • Trademarks: on names of any product or brand which would be linked with the use of 3 D printing, printers, objects, machines, services linked with the printing in 3 Dimensions.

  • Models : of any kind which could be printed in 3D

  • Design : for any type of goods, objects, that a company could receive a royalty on the printing of any design it produces

  • Authors’ copyright related to software in the domain of 3D printing, drafting models, design, plans, objects, etc.

  • Internet domain names (www.) which would contain a “3D” and with any type of extension like www.3Dprinting.lu or www.object.3Dprinting or any other website name

There is no minimum holding period. They can be invented or designed by their author who can bring the IP right into the Luxembourg company.
