certification

The fourth version of the 3D Printing certification Field Awards requires put in November, and we are proud to announce the launch of this year’s Trophy Style and design Levels of competition

Digital producing company Protolabs returns to sponsor the celebration for a 3rd time with 3D printer company Craftbot generously delivering a prize for the winning design and style.

Protolabs will switch the successful design and style into reality, making the trophies for the 3D Printing certification Sector Award winners. The designer of the winning trophy will also receive a 3D printed design of their structure. 

The winner of the Trophy structure level of competition will acquire a Craftbot Flow IDEX XL 3D printer worth $3,999. 

The Craftbot Stream IDEX XL is a substantial structure FDM/FFF 3D printer that functions two impartial extruders – making it possible for for multi-colour or multi-material 3D printing certification. Our engineering workforce set the Craftbot Circulation IDEX XL to the exam earlier this year and concluded that “a plethora of thoroughly made functions make this hidden gem a superb large-structure 3D printer for gurus.”

MyMiniFactory, a 3D design and file-sharing neighborhood is web hosting the Trophy Design Competition. Models can be submitted until September 30th the complete short is out there at MyMiniFactory.
