FADO design is a group of young people fascinated by 3D printing. They want to combine their technical know-how with designers’ imagination in order to create new quality products.

The organizer’s purpose of this 3d Printing Competition is to find talented, open-minded designers for cooperation and joint development of possibilities offered by 3D printing in DMLS technology.

Topic of the Contest is eyeglass frames built in DMLS technology (metal 3D printing).
They are looking for projects which showcase and bring out the immense potential of 3D printing in metal (stainless steel, titanium).
The submitted project must be a design that can be additively manufactured in DMLS technology.

Every contestant is entitled to submit more than one project.

The submitted project must be in line with the basic technical conditions in accordance with metal 3D printing design guidelines.

The most desired designs will be those which would be very difficult, if not almost impossible to produce with the use of other methods of manufacturing.

There is no entry fee for this 3d print competition!

It's free to enter!
