3D Printing Industry will be hosting the 1st Annual 3D Printing Awards later this year. We know that you, our readers, are some of the most well informed people in the world of 3D printing and associated technologies.
That is why we want to hear your thoughts on our industry.
The 3D Printing Awards are nominated and voted on by the 3D printing community. We’re eager to see which individuals, companies and projects our readers will put forward for the best 3D printers, 3D scanners, 3D designers and 3D printing materials in the 3D Printing Industry Awards.
Here are some of the people and enterprises that have already received nominations.
Best 3D printers
Well-known brands Polaroid and Canon have recently made their entry into the 3D printer market. There are also nominations for 3D printer manufacturers including Fusion 3, FlashForge, XYZPrinting, and Lulzbot.
Multi-tool 3D printers could be another potential nominee for best 3D printer with contenders such as Dobot and ZMorph.
High resolution SLA 3D printers
Our readers have nominated the MoonRay range of DLP 3D printers from American company SprintRay and other desktop vat-polymersiation 3D printer companies including Formlabs and DWS.
If this high-resolution DWS 3D print catches your eye then you can make a nomination here.
Best 3D Scanners
Shining 3D, Artec, and FARO are contenders for best 3D scanners in 2017.
AIO Robotics incorporate scanning with 3D printing in the ZEUS model.
3D scanning can used for a variety of projects. Some may be better for reverse engineering prototype parts, others for capturing sculptures in museums.
Best 3D Design
We have seen nominations for companies including Autodesk, Sculpteo, and FATHOM.
Best 3D printer materials
A 3D printer would be nothing without its materials, so how about an award for sustainable filament makers ALGIX3D? Or something from ESUN’s range?
Our readers have also made nominations for Protopasta, Maker Geeks and Colorfab.
Airwolf 3D may also be a top contender for 3D printer materials following the launch of their HydroFill water soluble filament.
And Nano Dimension are worth keeping in mind for the best 3D printer materials with their nanoparticle inks for the Dragonfly 2020 system. A 3D printer that can print electronics.
New nominations for the first annual 3D Printing Industry Awards arrive every day, so be sure your best 3D printers and technologies don’t miss out!
