After a first selection made by a Jury of experts, the start-ups in the running present their solutions in additive manufacturing through dynamic and innovative pitches during a dedicated round table in the workshop area. The winner is then announced at the end of the ceremony.

This competition is a unique opportunity to connect brands and principals looking for unique 3D printing solutions with highly motivated young companies. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay posted on the contest (nominated start-ups, award ceremony, nominees solutions…)!
You are a start-up and you want to expose your solution to the whole 3D community?

Nominated start-up for the Start-up Contest 2023


3D SPARK has developed software capable of analyzing 3D CAD files and 2D drawings to recommend the cheapest, fastest and most durable manufacturing process for each part. The software therefore saves resources and streamlines production, sales and purchasing efforts.


AKI3D aims to eliminate the use of plaster for the fixed immobilization of fractured or dislocated limbs, by offering a custom-made resin immobilization solution produced by LCD 3D printing. It also addresses environmental issues, as resin is waste-free, reusable and remeltable, unlike plaster.


Namma has launched the first range of EVA industrial hybrid 3D printers which, thanks to its tool-head changeover, can integrate additive and subtractive manufacturing in the same machine. Applications are diverse compared to professional 3D printers, such as appearance parts and precise industrial parts.


PSCT is a digital laboratory specializing in 3D printing design and prototyping for the fashion industry. The use of additive manufacturing as their main production technology enables them to reduce production-related waste, recycle the materials used and create parts that are unfeasible with traditional means of production.


SYMPHONY 3D offers a comprehensive 3D printing (LCD) solution for the production of customized hearing aids for hearing-impaired people. This solution overcomes 2 major obstacles: the technician can quickly master the tool thanks to a simplified interface, and it can be produced locally.


ValCUN specializes in aluminum additive manufacturing. Their core offering uses the molten metal deposition (MMD) process to produce aluminum components for faster, more cost-effective manufacturing. By using industry-recognized aluminum alloys, their solution broadens the scope of applications and industries benefiting.
