During the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, the largest design event in Northern Europe, Additive Industries has launched its fifth edition of the Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge.
Industrial 3D metal printing or additive manufacturing is gaining ground every day and in order to grow the number of examples and inspire many other industries to develop dedicated applications for industrial 3D printing, Additive Industries is organising this Design Challenge. Competing in two categories, both professionals and students are encouraged to redesign an existing conventional part of a machine or product for 3D printing.
A professional jury will evaluate all designs submitted and assess whether they contain the distinctive features and freedom additive manufacturing has to offer. The partners of the Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge are Ultimaker, a consumer 3D printer manufacturer, Altair Engineering, leading CAE technology provider, Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software and CECIMO, European Association of the Machine Tool Industries, who are also a part of the competent jury.
The finalists will take home wonderful prizes like software licenses and the Winners receive besides a 3D printed Award also the latest Ultimaker printer. All six finalists will be invited to Additive World Conference on March 20th, 2019 in Eindhoven, where the winners of the Design Challenge 2018 will be announced during the Additive World Awards Dinner.
“We are looking forward to this 5th anniversary edition of the Challenge, with inspiring (re)designs to eliminate manufacturing difficulties, reduce the number of parts, minimize assembly or lower logistics costs” adds Daan A.J. Kersten, co-founder and CEO of Additive Industries.
