End Contest

Caution: This contest is open to French residents only.

Your challenge is to think, imagine and create the ideal 3D object. The object that will be the testimony of technological prowess achievable in 3D printing. This object can have the shape you want, but it must really be the result of a thinking on the benefits of production and design of a 3D object and make it the incarnation .

3D Spirit Contest 3D Printing 1

Building on the capabilities of HP Jet Fusion technology and Autodesk software, you will bring to life an object that, before the birth of additive printing, would never have been possible.
