Additive Industries has announced that the ‘Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge 2016’ is open for participants in both professional and student categories. The deadline for entry is February 29, 2016 and winners will be announced at the Additive World Conference, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, March 22-24.
The Design Challenge was established in 2015 with the aim of inspiring different industries to develop dedicated applications for industrial 3D printing. Entrants are encouraged to redesign an existing conventional part of a machine or product for production by Additive Manufacturing. Award winning designs will be printed in metal.
Partners in the Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge are Altair Engineering and Ultimaker. The contestants will be supported by Additive Industries’ AddLab team in topology optimisation during the design process and the winners in both categories take home the latest Ultimaker 2 3D printer.
