3D printers are used widely, from making machines to architecture, molding designs, everyday goods, toys, characters, and so on. The 3D data used is made by methods which continue to progress based on innovative concepts and technologies such as creating modeling data by measuring target objects using 3D scanning devices, large-scale shape data processing, etc.
In the areas of robot engineering and medical engineering for example, 3D printers are used to build 3D models for resolving various problems.
We welcome entries from areas developing such novel applied technologies, 3D shapes made by additive manufacturing, 3D models built using original and innovative 3D shape production methods, etc.
For details of digital modeling contests held by Japan Society for Graphic Science in the past, please click here.
Entries are judged on the following criteria comprehensively.
- Ability to build 3D data and models taking into account ideas and method of building the model.
Structures and mechanisms possible with 3D printers
- Complicated mechanisms which could not be built easily with cutting techniques and casting until now.
- Materialization of geometrical figures
New applied fields
- Use of 3D data for new fields for resolving various tasks
Individuals and groups consisting of several persons
Fill in the necessary items in the application form, and upload the required documents A), B), and C) to the entry system EasyChair
- A) Description of entry
- B) Entry data (STL format, XVL* format, magics** format)
- C) Pledge Agreement
- Please make sure all required documents are submitted and there is no missing or omitted information when submitting your entry.
- Those using EasyChair for the first time must register a new account. If you already have an EasyChair account, you can use that.
A) Description of entry
Please refer to the instructions on describing entries and describe all the necessary particulars (MS Word, PDF).
- Description of entries that have passed judgment will be used in the ADMC2017 Poster Exhibition and for the booklet describing entries.
B) Entry data
Files must be submitted in the STL format.
- For specifications on entry data production, please refer to "Instructions on preparing ADMC2017 entry data". In the specifications, the maximum dimensions of 3D models are specified, but if applicants are prepared to output models and bring in/out of the venue themselves if their entries pass the judgment and are to be exhibited in the hall, there is no limit to the maximum dimensions.
- If the STL file size exceeds the upper limit of the upload by EasyChair, convert the STL data to XVL* format or magics** format to compress the data and then upload to EasyChair.
STL data compression method
- Please install software used for compressing STL data at your own responsibility.
Software supplied by Lattice Technology Co., Ltd.
When compressing using the XVL format, use XVL Studio Basic. This software can be used free of charge for a limited time for this contest.
To download the installer, please click here.
The XVL Studio BASIC and the installer you downloaded from ADMC web site are expired.
We would appreciate removing the XVL Studio BASIC and the installer from your PC.
For details of the software, please click here.
Software supplied by Materialise®.
When compressing using the magics format, use MiniMagics.
To download the installer and for details of the software, please click here.
C) Pledge Agreement
Document to represent and warranty that the entry is an original of the applicant and the applicant bears full responsibility for the entry.
Please sign this agreement(PDF) and submit it in PDF or JPEG format.
- If entering as a group, all members of the group must submit the Pledge Agreement.
