International, top-class, interbranch Jury
Verticals: Design, Digital, Architecture, Material, FashionTech, MedTech, Mobility
Die challenge adresses already for the third time specialists that are thinking outside the box - pushing boundaries!
The unique 3D Pioneers Challenge covers a range of verticals and is aimed at designers who are breaking new ground in the field of 3D printing, taking into account the complete value-added system of additive technologies and who understand the key trends in the industry.
The Challenge seeks to uncover specialists from around the world who are thinking outside the box and - pushing boundaries.
3D Printing supports a range of new technologies and visions. Combining several different manufacturing methods creates innovation. We are standing at the edge of a new digital era of speed, fusion of human and environment, Industrial Internet Consortium and smart factories up to artificial intelligence. The opportunities seem to be unlimited – already today in our everyday life robotic is as imaginable as fashion that reacts towards its environment.
Additive manufacturing technologies give the chance to go forward future and help visions to take shape.
