It´s the year 2020...
Visions of the future sketched our present age as an impressive time in which technical achievements and intelligent objects support people, interact with their surroundings and enrich the world.
Today, 3D printing, material innovations, artificial intelligence and robotics have long since become a decisive focus of science, industry and society. Products are virtually developed and simulated. They receive an astonishing new aesthetic and efficiency in their performance.
The latest developments e.g. in bioprinting, 3D printed electronics through to soft robotics or large-size construction are inspiring. Moreover pioneers are researching nanomaterials or designing shape-changing products, creating smart 4D printing.
In the sustainable and industrial design of tomorrow, interdisciplinary action and creative lateral thinking are the keys to innovation- Advanced Manufacturing.
3DPC 2020, be part of the future and push the boundaries!
Prize money 35.000 Euro kindly supported by the Ministry of Economics, Science and Digital Society Thuringia.
