About 3D Printing Event

3D Printing is hot and is going to change the way we are living and working!

Still 3D printing is very much a technology driven activity applied by designers and engineers, although several companies / start ups are offering 3D printing services for individuals who want to have their own designed product replicated and sold to others on order.

The 3D printing industry is growing at a fierce rate, and there are four trends visible:

- the established industry is not only introducing new professional 3D printers with more and more functionality, but has started to bring low end 3D printers as well

- the open source community works hard to create 3D printers which can be used in personal and professional environments

-the biggest bottleneck is still the 3D software for making great designs easily

- 3D Printing services are playing a very important role in creating new business and new business opportunities.

The event contains four linked activities:

1) the seminar will tackle business, social, technical, legal, cultural and design challenges, discuss innovative solutions, show new business opportunities and will give an outlook into the future of 3D printer industry.

2) The exhibition will show 3D printing in its current and future formats.

3) The 3D Printing Design competition is arranged in cooperation with GrabCAD.

4) The Hackathon about new 3D design tools, which will take place 5 and 6 October 2,5 week before the event.

The Event will take place 23 October 2012, Seat2Meet, Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

    @teigan... hahaha... so true...

    but on a serious note. i don't have any experience with a 3d printer. is there any link or any particular set of rules or guidelines for me to follow when creating my model?

    the two things that i get is that the parts i model should be relatively simple. but i don't know about the types of materials allowed. like the main body might be plastic but the hinges might be metal etc etc.

    thank you

    I have a question about:

    "A 3D Printing at Home Competition entry must contain a .STL or .OBJ file along with a completed online submission form and max. 4 images"

    What is the submission form? And does that mean we can only have a max of 4 rendering or are we supposed to put together a separate PDF or PowerPoint explaining our part that includes only 4 pictures?

    Is the model supposed to be printable on a specific machine or does it just have to be a printable *.stl? I mean, "printable" depends a lot on the which type of machine you print with.

  • Robert de Roode

    Robert de Roode almost 2 years ago

    I build my own 3d printer (Mendel prusa) and if you want to have "floating parts" you need to slice the model with support structures enabled. But afterwards you need to cut these away,

    better is to design it with angles not topping 45 degrees, else seperate and glue the parts together ;)

    There are printers with multiple extruders but due the difference in heating (pla requires about 170 degrees, and ABS around 220) i would not recomend these together. Also, ABS is petrolium based and much stronger, while pla is more brittle but more "food friendly".

    @Hevi I checked and your entry made it in with no problem. @Gabe is taking care of the other entries since we are experiencing technical problems. If your entry did not show up in the entries page but was submitted by the deadline - he made sure they got to the judges. Sorry the problems!

    It's going to be a hard decision for the jurys to decide the better, there are a lot of great models worth the prize.

    It has only been a week and most challenges I have seen take a few to judge. They should not have given a date of when the winner would be announced if they were not going to follow through but I would give the judges a few more weeks.

    Thanks, Gabe, for not keeping Your word as You said.
    The Competition is finished, winners announced, but my project didn't compete, because somebody didn't do what he said:
    Gabe: "Please email me (gabe@grabcad.com) with the link to your project. I will make sure your submissions are included before the jury takes a look."
    ________________

    But most important:
    Congrats to the winners, Your jobs are awesome!

    congratulations to all winners but another time I have something to suggest to grabcad staff... Please give more details in the description before starting a new challenge because Someone follow them to thinking about models to submit. for ex: this competion was designed for a live event and setted to be a fast selection winner during the event. so I thought fast printing objects and above all something that can be used immediatly in the event to show how much it is usefull and well simple drawn. In this case, probably, I did wrong reading of the description or the models weren't printed during the event... the goal of the staff should be a non interpretable detailed description so as nobody can say "I did not uderstood". I hope to be helpfull to design better challange settings. thank you.

    @Hevi I believe your data guardian is too complex for this challenge... including elctronics and mechanism it become hard to be examined... this should be a fast selecion challenge... maybe :D

    it never is too late to improve site staff comunication. I had suggest grabcad team to make a pre-selection during the entire challenge long so as kick off models not accorded with rules and requirements at first view. I hope they'll change method soon
