In order to raise the number of examples and inspire many other industries to develop dedicated applications for industrial 3D printing,
Additive Manufacturing technologies are developing rapidly all over the world. It’s a challenge to keep up to date with international trends, dynamic technologies and business cases.
Industrial 3D metal printing or additive manufacturing is gaining ground every day... Critical in the success of these innovative applications is the ability of the designer to ‘design for additive manufacturing’ or maximize the possibilities this new production technology has to offer.
Apply the features that make this technology unique: design freedom, thin walls, lattice structures, form free channels in the product, integration of parts and functions, customisation and more.
Competing in two categories both professional designers & engineers and students are encouraged to take an existing part of a machine or product that is made with conventional technologies today and redesign it for 3D printing.
In order to assist the participants in the Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge to make the best design possible, Additive Industries is offering help. During the Additive Industries Support Sessions in January 2019, participants can contact the Additive Industries by telephone or webmeeting for support in topology optimization or to evaluate the printablilty. Please book a timeslot through email@example.com.
A professional jury will evaluate all designs submitted and assess whether they contain the distinctive features and freedom additive manufacturing has to offer. All 6 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.
The possibility to apply for this design challenge 2019 is from October 25, 2018 until February 1, 2019.
There is no entry fee for to participate!
It's free to enter!
The Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge 2019 is open to both professional designers & engineers and students.
The top 3 in both categories get a free 1 year licence of Altair’s Inspire software, netfabb and a Fusion360 License from Autodesk. All finalists are invited to join the Additive World Conference and Additive World Awards Dinner at no cost.
The winners in both categories take home theUltimaker 3D printer (professional winner Ultimaker 3 and student winner Ultimaker 2+) and a larger package netfabb and Fusion360 License from Autodesk. Also the award winning designs will be printed in metal. The winners of the Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge will be invited to present during annual Masterclass: Design for Additive Manufacturing, which will be hosted by Additive Industries during Dutch Design Week.
