Type:Submission

Categories:Art, Design, engineering, STEM

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The ASME Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D (IAM3D) Challenge is designed to give mechanical and multi-disciplinary undergraduate students around the world an opportunity to re-engineer existing products or create new designs. The Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D Challenge (IAM3D) will be held in collaboration with ASME’s Global E-Fests (Engineering Festivals), a series of 3-day, 2-night regional events built around design, advanced manufacturing and robotics technologies. Expanding knowledge, testing and showcasing new skills, and inspiring innovation….that’s the focus of ASME’s E-Fests. In short, if you’re an engineering student, this is your place to shine and thrive.

Students competing in ASME IAM3D competitions showcase their creativity by demonstrating the value added through their ingenuity, application of sound engineering design principles, and leveraging Additive Manufacturing technology to address a broad spectrum of industrial, manufacturing, and humanitarian challenges. To compete in the challenge, student/team leader are required to complete the following:

  • Business Case Report (guidelines below)
  • Upload a 3 Minute YouTube Video (please see submission form for the video naming convention)
  • Uploada CAD Model to Autodesk 360 Viewer

Business case (Context and Relevance) 20%
  • What is the value proposition for the proposed design?
  • Does the proposed design address a real and specific design need?
  • Does the proposed design address a specific challenge or serve a wide base of end users?
  • What impact will the new design have (social, environmental, economic, etc.)?
  • Does the design provide a competitive advantage over existing products or solutions?
Innovation and Creativity 30%
  • Is there any novel approach to the subject or problem that inspired this design?
  • Is the work independent and original? Is there evidence of creativity in both form and function?
  • Does the design leverage the unique capabilities of additive manufacturing?
Efficiency and Feasibility 30%
  • How practical is this design in view of contemporary engineering standards/practices, taking into consideration additive manufacturing?
  • Are factors influencing the design adequately considered (Energy savings, material cost, Manufacturability, assembly, sustainability)?
  • Are the design alternatives evaluated with realistic constraints?
Communication and Presentation 20%
  • Is the project objective clearly identified?
  • Is there sufficient background information provided to introduce the audience to the design?
  • Does the student/team effectively convey the context of his/her design to spectators?
  • Does the student/team engage with spectators with sufficient knowledge, confidence and clarity?
  • Does student/team interaction enhance the presentation of the project? How effective are the visual aids (if any)?
  • For the second stage of the challenge, at the IAM3D Challenges held at E-Fest events, the selected participants will assemble their design, showcase their functional prototype, and compete in a 10 minute verbal presentation with additional 5 minutes reserved for Q & A.

    Design submissions will be judged based on a scoring ratio of 80% for additive manufacturing design assessment, and 20% for Presentation.

    In the event of a tie, the student/team whose submission received the highest combined score for Innovation and Feasibility as determined by the qualified judges will be deemed the Finalist.
