Hackathon: Develop a toolkit to 3D design and 3D Print

Results will be presented at the 3D Printing Event
With the fast growth of the 3D Printing industry, it is becoming clear that the weakest chain in the value chain to get a 3D product printed, are the design tools and the easy conversion to a 3D printing format.
There are many design tools and related hardware solutions available, but most are related to traditional input methods like the mouse etc.
With the advent of the Wii, Micosoft Kinect and Leapmotion, new input methods will become available for designing 3D objects. In order to boost development, a challenge will be organised to create toolkits to 3D design and 3D Print.

The Challenge
Develop a toolkit to 3D design and 3D Print, based upon Wii or Microsoft Kinec, Leapmotion or any other innovative device, not being a mouse, in 32 hours.

We’ll look at the software tools, and the technology. Feel you can contribute in any of those? Then this is the place to be for you!

Our partners will provide hardware and related SDK’s and other software tools.
