Additive Industries launches its 5th Additive Manufacturing Design Challenge

October 30, 2018

Additive Industries, Eindhoven, the Netherlands, has launched its 5th Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge. The annual challenge is aimed at increasing the number of examples available of highly effective design for metal Additive Manufacturing, encouraging the technology’s application across a wider range of industries.

Competing in two categories, both professionals and students are encouraged to enter the challenge by redesigning an existing, conventionally manufactured component for metal Additive Manufacturing. A professional jury will evaluate all submitted designs to assess whether they make the most of the distinctive features and freedom AM has to offer.

Partners of the Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge are consumer 3D printer manufacturer Ultimaker, Altair Engineering, Autodesk and CECIMO, the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries. All six challenge finalists will be invited to Additive World Conference in Eindhoven, March 20, 2019, with the winners to be announced during the Additive World Awards Dinner.

Daan AJ Kersten, Additive Industries Co-founder and CEO, stated, “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, and minimise assembly or lower logistics costs.” Prizes will include software licenses, an additively manufactured award, and the latest Ultimaker 3D printer.
