Semifinalists To Be Announced For IAM3D Challenge

The inaugural American Society of Mechanical Engineers Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D (IAM3d) Challenge has officially launched.  The contest, which is designed to provide mechanical engineering and multidisciplinary/engineering technology undergraduate students with a chance to compete to win one of several $2,000 prizes, is now allowing projects to be submitted.

Students who enter are asked to either improve on a current product, or create a new product that minimizes energy consumption or improves energy efficiency. Students may enter as individuals, or as a team of no more than 3. Registration is open until May 1, 2014 (also the last day to submit projects), and all students are asked to register at the ASME Submitables website.

The top 30 entrants, which will be chosen by a panel of judges, will have their designs printed on 3D printers, and asked to present their ideas at the ASME 2014 International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition in Montreal, Canada.

– Best Freshman Design

Each winner will get a $2,000 cash prize. The Faculty Adviser of each winner will get a complimentary 5-year ASME membership and a $1,000 cash prize.  The 30 Semifinalists will be announced by August 31, 2014, and the final round will take place in November of 2014.  The contest is open to students worldwide.
