The 3DPC 2020 finalists have been chosen!

The 3D Pioneers Challenge has published the finalists of the international design competition for additive manufacturing technologies. More than 50 finalists made it onto the shortlist in the multi-stage jury process and will now be presented here and on social media until the digital award ceremony.
Congratulations to all finalists!

Please find for download the press release about the 3DPC 2020 Finalists: in English and in German.

Also in the fifth year, participants from the creative scene, industry, research institutions and students have been competing in 10 different categories in the largest competition of its kind for 3D printing. In 2020, the 3D Pioneers Challenge, with entries from 28 countries and 6 continents, once again surpassed the previous year's success.

Digital Award ceremony

Together with Messe Erfurt the 3DPC is reacting to the corona-related cancellation of Rapid.Tech 3D and will be holding the competition including the award ceremony digitally in 2020. Therefore 3DPC provides the participants and partners and of course prize winners the adequate special platform.
The digital award ceremony will be broadcasted online on 15 July 2020, on social media and on this website www.3dpc.io.

Join the stream when it‘s time for „...and the winner is...!“

Wednesday, July 15 2020, 4 p.m. CET (Central European Time) the „digital award ceremony“ will be streamed at:

Focus 2020

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!

Prizes

Prize money 35.000 Euro kindly supported by the Ministry of Economics, Science and Digital Society Thuringia.

Digital award ceremony in cooperation with Messe Erfurt and Rapid.Tech 3D , 15 July 2020.

Highlight 2020: 3DPC Trophy
A special highlight is waiting for the main winner of the 3DPC 2020:
As part of 3DPC & Friends, last year's winner in the vertical Digital Hyperganic was brought together with juror and star designer Ross Lovegrove and the 3DPC partner Materialise. The result of such a cooperation in the 3DPC network can be seen for the first time on 15 July 2020 when the joint work is awarded to the main winner - the additive manufactured 3DPC Trophy!

Best student project
MakerBotEMEA hands for the best student project the MakerBot Replicator+

Special Mention by Autodesk
Autodesk awards an opportunity to join their highly regarded Autodesk Technology Centers Residency program in N. America at one of the locations - San Francisco, Boston, or Toronto.
The Residency Program at the Autodesk Technology Centers provides open workspaces for teams from industry, academic, and startup communities doing forward-looking work in the areas of construction, manufacturing, and emerging technologies.
