First 3D printing competition at Research Day
The Baden-Württemberg Foundation's first 3D printing competition was held as part of the Research Day 2015. With this day, the foundation wants to offer an interesting platform for the innovative technologies and the scientists of the current research programmes to present themselves and their work.
More than 18 print products have been submitted, including a 6-speed transmission and a 3D campus model, which is intended to provide students and especially blind visitors with better orientation on the premises of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Siegfried Hohmann and Jonas Wohlgemuth from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) were awarded a jury prize for the development of an optimized printing process for QCMD arrays for mass spectrometric analysis of samples as the most useful laboratory instrument in the competition.
