AMUG names technical competition winners

The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has named the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) and Canadian 3D printing company Custom Prototypes as winners of its technical competition.

UDRI also won the Members’ Choice award, the group said.

Custom Prototypes’ winning entry in the advanced finishing category, entitled “Tomlinsonus Dimitrii – the oldest fossil of marine animal ever found”, focused on 3D printing and post-processing a model of the fossil.

UDRI won the advanced concepts category for an additively manufactured (AM) micro-turbine engine.
