BCN3D Epsilon 3D printer wins international design IF Awards

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

The Epsilon 3D printer by BCN3D won over the 98 members of a jury made up of independent design experts all over the world. The competition was intense: almost 10,000 entries were submitted from 52 countries.

“My design process is based on a very famous methodology called design thinking. It’s quite a common theory but, for me, the true skill lies in knowing how to adapt that methodology to each particular project. For example, the needs of a hardware product, such as a printer, are very different from a software product, such as an operating system interface. However, there is one similarity between them: their creation consists of common phases that go through conceptualization, design, and validation, all of them always with the user at the center of the process.”, said Fermin Monreal, BCN3D product designer.

“The BCN3D Epsilon printers allow you to print parts to a real scale which is incredibly useful for validating concepts in the most realistic way. They also offer a range of different technical materials that allow to validate not only the interaction, but also the mechanical or dimensional behaviour among others, and even generate end-use parts.

In short, the Epsilon series obtains the performance of an industrial machine without neglecting usability, ergonomics, and aesthetics,” said Fermin Monreal.
