17 Dec 2013 Singapore International Fashion 3D Printing Competition
Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology or 3D printing will revolutionize the manufacturing supply chain and bring about a fundamental shift in design paradigm. This technology, that enables physical parts to be generated layer by layer directly from design drawing, is one of the key disruptive technologies in the Future of Manufacturing (FOM) plan in Singapore.
The Nanyang Additive Manufacturing Centre (NAMC), part of the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore, is looking to focus on developing — and sustaining — a skilled global 3D printing and additive manufacturing workforce. To this end and in line with this objective the organization has established the Singapore International 3D Printing Competitions to promote awareness and showcase the potential capabilities of 3D Printing as an enabler technology for various applications.
EFESTO will be present on the Singapore International Fashion 3D Printing Competition with a 9 sqm booth and will handle a dedicated intro presentation slot to industry visitors.
