Professionals and students are invited by Additive Industries to (re)design products dedicated for metal 3D printing

Industrial 3D metal printing or additive manufacturing is growing rapidly. Even for series production in aerospace, automotive, medical and high tech systems parts and subassemblies are printed. Light weighting, mass customization, reduction of lead time and improved performance drive the adoption across industries. Crucial in the success of these innovative applications is the ability of the designer to ‘design for additive manufacturing’ and maximize the possibilities this new production technology has to offer. Apply the features that make this technology unique: thin walls, honeycomb structures, form free channels in the product, integration of functions and personalization.

In order to grow the number of examples and inspire many other industries to develop dedicated applications for industrial 3D printing, Additive Industries is presenting the third edition of the Additive World Design for Additive Manufacturing Challenge. Competing in two categories, both professionals and students are encouraged to redesign an existing conventional part of a machine or product for 3D printing. The winners will be announced at the Additive World Conference on March 15th, 2017 in Eindhoven.

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 contestants will be supported by the Additive Industries team in topology optimization during the design process and the winners in both categories take home an Ultimaker 3D printer. Also the award winning designs will be printed in metal. On the www.additiveworld.com website more information on the Design Challenge can be found such as support by the Additive Industries team, evaluation criteria and how to submit your redesign.
