In the current business environment, increasingly dynamic, with numerous technological innovations, human resources and the know-how generated are volatile. Knowledge and the way it is shared and retained in organizations has become a source of competitive advantage. It is, therefore, necessary to develop tools to help companies manage their knowledge and use it to leverage value creation. In the case of companies that use or can use Additive Manufacturing Technology (AM), often associated with 3D printing, knowledge management processes are even more important because they are in a disruptive and emerging industry with innovative and complex products whose business models' dynamic is not yet known. Despite the great opportunities for this technology, the uncertainties about its future developments and impacts on society and business models remain. KM3D intends to answer the question: What are the impacts of the adoption of AM technology on the business models of companies?KM3D aims to improve decision-making processes by identifying and characterizing the impacts of adopting this technology, as well as the knowledge management strategies to be adopted to increase competitiveness and sustainability in business models, in companies using AM technology
