IAM3D Challenge

The ASME Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D (IAM3D) Challenge, which is now part of ASME's Global E-Fests (Engineering Festivals), is designed to give mechanical and multi-disciplinary undergraduate students around the world an opportunity to re-engineer existing products or create new designs. Students competing in ASME IAM3D will showcase their creativity by demonstrating the value added through their ingenuity, application of sound engineering design principles, and leveraging Additive Manufacturing technology to address a broad spectrum of industrial, manufacturing, and humanitarian challenges.

We have exciting news. The IAM3D Challenge is currently being revamped for the 2019 E-Fest events. 2018 will be a year of learning regarding IAM3D and although it won’t look exactly the same as it has in the past, we will have fun, educational and interactive IAM3D-inspired events at each 2018 E-Fest.

Each E-Fest will include an Impromptu CAD Battle (with prizes) please see rules for more details, followed by a workshop.


First Place – $250 cash prize, 3D Printed ASME trophy and the winders design will be 3D Printed and shipped to the winner (May not be to scale).
Second Place – $150 cash prize, and a 3D Printed ASME trophy
Third Place – $75 cash prize, and a 3D printed ASME trophy
