3D Pioneers Challenge 2016
Where does using additive manufacturing make sense, today and in the near future? How can it be integrated on a conceptual and practical level into areas such as hybrids, the Internet of things and Industry 4.0, or help to drive them forward? Who are the pioneers of nowadays, combining the latest technologies and developing practical applications, integrating them into existing processes or creating brand new, trend-setting concepts?
The competition focused on the following verticals:
Design - Architecture - Automotive - Fashion - Medicine
The 3D Pioneers Challenge had a total of EUR 15,000 of prize money to award across the verticals.
The 1st prize (5.000€) won the Nano 3D Drucker MBZ-2PP by
Norman Petzold, Olaf Mollenhauer, Eric Markweg, Thomas Kowallik
The Nano 3D-Printer MBZ-2PP prints three-dimensional biopolymer structures. They are used as scaffold implants to improve bone growth.
Jurys comment: Most brilliant innovation. Significant use of 3D printed nano-structures.
The winner of the 2. Prize with 4.000€ is:
with his Prothese Pangolin,
This project is about the design of a low-cost prosthesis. Almost the entire prosthesis is sintered.
Jurys comment: Perfect synthesis of bionic, individual fit and design in fashion. Too beautiful to be hidden behind dresses.
The 3. Prize (3.000€) goes to
3D food-printing experience with personalized smart-snacks. It is a way of self-determination, well-being and expressing a certain lifestyle.
Jurys comment: Reimagines the classic kitchen aid in new way. This is vegetable combination 4.0. The designer likes the Multisensorical Experiences of Stanley Kubrick.!
The team of the project Mensch Maschine won the 3. Prize (3.000€)
Tobias Brambor, Lena Popiolek, Marcus Hackner, Marius Rossenthal, Thyl Niebergall, Andrey Jefimov
, HAWK Hildesheim
The idea is simple: vehicle that are able to carry the weight of one person and are driven by a conventional power screw-driver.
Jurys comment: New interpretation of the "Seifenkiste" by using 3D printed, self-supporting, bionic structures.
