this kinda blew me away ...competition fees

Recommended Posts

Someone made the suggestion some time ago to enter competitions to receive some feedback around some designs I have made.

This is not really my style but ooh well, I looked into it a bit yesterday and it kinda blew me away... Alice in wonderland kinda style.

Turned out you have to pay an entrance fee, and now for the twilight zone part, you have to pay gigantic fees when you do win such a competition. O_o

Red dot, if design, you name it, they all do it.

So in my case I would pay for something and then hope to god that I don’t win that prize or I would go bankrupt lol

This is starting to get ridiculous if you ask me.

Or am I missing something here?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
