Contest of 3D Printing Innovation & Creativity
Theme – Printing robots with 3D printing technology
3D printing technology, a pioneering advance manufacturing technology, is rapidly transforming the way we live and manufacture. It is able to quickly materialize creative works and turn them into real products, which is its biggest advantage over other technologies. It is considered an inevitable trend in the future that 3D printing technology will integrate with robotics, Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing and other cutting-edge technologies. This is believed to inspire a new era of industrial revolution.
2015 World 3D Printing Technology Industry Conference & Expo, jointly hosted by World 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance, Asian Manufacturing Association and China 3D Printing Technology Industry Alliance, will be held on June 3-6, 2015 in Chengdu, China, which is regarded as the largest party of the 3D printing industry that gathers well known experts and companies across the world.
To increase the communication between China’s 3D printing companies and their foreign peers, and strengthen their collaboration in technology, and to promote the combination of 3D printing technology with application market, we initiated the 2015 World 3D Printing Innovation and Creativity Contest, which is open to worldwide users and enthusiasts of 3D printing technology.
