Iran 3DShow 2018 increased the public awareness of 3D Printing – students were the stars of the 3d Printing competition
3D printing is rising!
Just 2 weeks before reaching winter, the Iran 3DShow 2018 warmed up the tech trends alongside younger generation. Beside the main exhibition and conferences, it was a big contest for any individual to take part in 3D printing directly.
As discussed before, at the first day we took the chance and sat to listen to the Additive Manufacturing talks. You can find the exact keynote speakers on the Event’s official website.
People could also benefit from the the founder of Noura Imprinting Layers’ company CEO; Dr. Badrosamay keynotes, as “Additive manufacturing research from polymers to metals” since this company is one of the most known enterprise 3D printing companies in the region. at the end Dr. Akbari, gave a speech about “4D printing, a new paradigm in 3D printing” as the 1st day closing speech to the audience.
After keynote speakers, The AM panel showed up with 2 differnet subject called “3D printing of living organs” and “Metal and ceramic additive manufacturing”. these 2 panels were chaired by “Dr. Sadegh Rahmati, Dr. Riahi, Dr. Moosavi Shaghayegh” and “Dr. Solati, Dr. Abolfathi, Dr. Heydari” respectively.
The confrence panel continued until second day of exhibition and “Metal and ceramic additive manufacturing” were chaired by “Dr. Amirjan, Dr. Esmkhani and Dr. Foroozmehr” this time. Since this subject was critical enough, another session with the same subject kept audience going by chairing Dr. Behravesh, Dr. Badrossamay and Dr. Shoja Razavi. The 5th session was about “3D Printing/additive manufacturing materials” chaired by Dr. Zamanian, Dr. Alaafzadeh and Dr. Heydari. Last session featured “Modeling in Additive Manufacturing” and Dr. Movvahedi, Dr. Rezadoost and Dr. Kadkhodapoor chaired the article providers.
The 2nd day’s invited speakers were Dr. Torabi, Dr. Majidfar and Dr. Solati. The subjects were “Factories of future”, “Future of Additive manufacturing in Iran and globe in 2031” and “3D printing medical applications” respectively.
After all these academic aspects of Iran 3DShow 2018, it was 3D Printing competition’s turn. take a look at the video provided below:
Women in 3D printing took the lead!
As mentioned earlier, the 3D Printing contest was held across students, teachers and university students. At the University students contest, the first 3 group of winners were all women, which showed impressive dedication of women in 3D printing structures for the future. The winners are:
1st place: Zahra Shirband and Motahareh Hosseini
2nd place: Bita Ebrahimpoor and Sara Safizadeh
3rd place: Mojgan Sinjali
Winners of 3D Printing competition along teachers are:
1st place: Mr. Javad Gholampoor Darzi; providing a tool for understating the “Derivative concept” in mathematics.
2nd place: Mr. Mohammadreza Khoshbin; providing a tool to help using a Calipers.
3rd place: Ms. Fatemeh Bayat; providing a tool to help understanding the “Subtraction concept”.
And for school students, winners in High school level are:
1st place: Amir Bijani, Seyed Ali Motahari, Mohammad Hossien Tavakoli, Mohammad Javad Moradi and Ali Esmaeeli Moghaddam.
2nd place: Reyhaneh Azari, Fatemeh Arshad Tehrani, Zahra Shaghagi and Anahita Mahmoodi
3rd place: Reyhaneh Shabani, Zahra mahrooyan, Mahdieh Naseri and Negar Derafshi.
And the award in primary level went to:
1st place: Sara Habibollahian and Razieh Maleki.
How about exhibition?
As far as exhibition concerns, some of 3D printing leaders were absent like Sizan(one of the well known domestic 3D Printer manufacturer) and 3D Geppetto, but some stars have been born: Raybod with an extra ordinary DLP 3D Printer targetting Global market, 3DZone with a perfectly engineered and integrated kids-friendly FDM 3D printer, Runaco(Medical SLS 3D printing solution provider), Protolabs3D with a protocol to manufacture costume CNC/3D Printing machines for costumers. 3Diaco with an innovative FDM machine(10 times faster than usual) and an innovative OS for all kinds of 3D Printer. Hermes with a large scale 3D Printer (approximately 100x100x100 cm). There were also many other companies involved that we could see have changed their perspective during 1 and half year. most of them consider R&D and technology optimization as their main point of view.
Seyyed Amir Ghaffari, IADMAN CEO and Iran3DShow managing director believes:
As for the 2nd Iran 3DShow, we might had difficulties connecting other industries and 3D Printing activists together, but we met our main goal which was increasing public and younger generation awareness about 3D printing perfectly. I hope upcoming Iran 3DShow would have something more interesting for audience. As we actually made our children more serious about engineering and designing an optimized structure, they will become more serious about Civil engineering and understand concepts way better(If they would like to continue higher education in a related field) to help their country have a better future. I hope people find their way in 3D printing and don’t see it as a complex high-tech material, but an application to disrupt almost any aspect of their lives, business and interests.
Last but not least, The last change was made in the body of Vice presidency of Science and Technology correspondent department of Additive Manufacturing. The Photonics and laser council and Advanced Manufacturing council combined together and formed a new department called The Photonics, Laser and Advanced Manufacturing (PAM) council. We hope changing at this level could lead to a better outcome. Until next achievement, stay tuned with 3DRooz!
