3D4D Challenge winner announced
London-based technology charity, techfortrade, has announced that Washington Open Object Fabricators (WOOF) has won The 3D4D Challenge. The 3D4D Challenge set out to find transformational ideas that could leverage 3D printing technologies to deliver real social benefits in the developing world. The winning project will enable waste plastic to be used as filament for 3D printing machines, to create new products. The winning team plan to work with US based NGO, Water for Humans (WFH), to address local issues in water and sanitation in Oaxaca, Mexico. Seven shortlisted projects competed in the final for a $100,000 prize at the 3D Print Show over the weekend.
Congratulations to WOOF and good luck with taking the project forward.
