Additive Industries wants to challenge both professional designers and students

In order to raise the number of examples and inspire many other industries to develop dedicated applications for industrial 3D printing, Additive Industries has launched the 5th edition of the Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge. 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. Partners in the Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge are leading CAE technology provider (e.g. Topology Optimization) - Altair Engineering, a consumer 3D printer manufacturer – Ultimaker, Autodesk - a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software and European Association of the Machine Tool Industries CECIMO. 

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 the Ultimaker 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. 

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 (with Altair solidThinking Inspire) or to evaluate the printablilty. We have the following possibilities for this (limited) topology optimization assiastance, please book a timeslot through m.engels@additiveindustries.com:

Registration is possible via this website from October 25, 2018. After the registration you will receive an Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge Manual with the requirements & rules and important deadlines for sending your design.  The (re)designs, together with the Submission Form and the motivation should be sent until February 1, 2019. For questions please contact Mrs. Irina Schatorjé i.schatorje@additiveindustries.com or by phone +31 (0) 40 2180660.
