A group of students from the Degree in Industrial Design Engineering participated in the EEBE 3D day, a day dedicated to additive manufacturing organised by the UPC-Besòs.

In the category of student work, the winner was the Küse project, by students Eva Palmer, Bernat Llanas and Miquel Clotet, who won a 3D printer. In the 3D printing challenge category, the Elisava team formed by Pau Tubau, Anna Garrido, Roger Rigat, Juan Urquia and Oriol Franch did not win in the end, but did a very good job. Elisava’s assistants have seen how the tests worked and, given the good experience, they have decided to repeat next year.

Meanwhile, Marta Janeras, Coordinator of the Development and Simulation Area of the Degree in Industrial Design Engineering and the Postgraduate Degree in Product Development, was part of the jury in the category of secondary school projects.

Exchange of experiences between users of 3D printing

The 3D Day EEBE is a programme of dissemination on desktop 3D printing that brings together students of both secondary education and university degrees and master’s degrees so that they have a space where they can exchange experiences with other people dedicated to the use of this technology, presenting their projects in an open discussion circle. In addition, participants were able to test their skills with 3D printers, participating in a 3D printing challenge where a very difficult piece was proposed to be solved in the best possible way.

This event is promoted by the DEFAM-TECNOFAB research group and the Barcelona East School of Engineering (EEBE) of the Barcelona Tech (UPC) in collaboration with the student association FabLab EEBE. It is funded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) and the company Fillamentum.
