Organisers of the annual purmundus challenge have announced that the theme of this year’s 3D printing competition will be “geometry and material in harmony.”
The international design contest for additive manufacturing is calling on submissions that focus on the relationship between materials and process, and tackle the challenge of “incorporating harmony as a state, and as a desire for the coherence and consummation of geometry and material.”
In an announcement made last week, the organisers expressed the importance of the “painstaking work” being carried out to develop new printable materials which are opening up more applications for additive technologies. The announcement said: “Whether it’s the adaptation of natural blueprints for technical applications or functional integration, rough structures for pressure transfer, free-moving joints and bearings for moving applications or fixed legs for the necessary stability, elastic, temperature-resistant, fibre-reinforced, fire-resistant, anti-static or conductive components – there are a wide range of […]
