Two projects by students of the Degree in Engineering awarded at the EEBE 3D Day

Some students of the Undergraduate Degree in Industrial Design Engineering have been awarded at the EEBE 3D Day, an educational event about 3D printing organized annually by UPC-Besòs.

Students Alícia Roca and Clàudia Clavé have won first place in the University Report category. Thanks to their project “ACE” (also designed by Joaquim Nogués), a proposal for the optimisation of the tennis racket of the future, they have been awarded with a 3D printer.

On the other hand, in the 3D Printing Challenge category, the Elisava Racing Team, formed by Alícia Roca, Maria Fernández, Gerard Cabezas and Clàudia Clavé, was in the second position. The challenge was to print a given part in a maximum time of two hours that supported the maximum possible load, and other teams from the school, such as ‘Circus’ and ‘Elisava Juniors’, also participated in the resolution of the challenge, doing a very good job. Students counted on the help of alumni Pau Tubau in the preparation of the prints.

For her part, Marta Janeras, Coordinator of the Development and Simulation Area of the Degree in Industrial Design Engineering, has been part of the jury for the second consecutive year in the category of secondary school projects.

Elisava participates every year in the EEBE 3D Day. In the last edition, the students Bernat Llanas, Eva Palmer and Miquel Clotet won in the category of student projects with ‘Küse’.
