A Roundup of the Coolest 3D Printed Products from the A’ Design Awards

 Moon Lion by Jaroslav Kocourek

Fabulous high heels, an attachable bone healing stimulator, and a futuristic bow tie are just some of the brilliant designs from the past three seasons of the A’Design Awards and Competition.

Creatives show off their ingenuity and ability to push the envelope in the rapidly advancing field of 3D printing. There are seemingly endless possibilities—designers can pick the material and produce things that are decorative, functional, or a fusion of the two. The “Osteoid,” a medical cast, improves the overall healing experience by being a thinner, lighter-weight structure with ventilation holes. In addition, it can be combined with a low-intensity pulsed ultrasound that quickens regeneration time.

There’s still time to participate in the competition! The submissions are reviewed by a panel of esteemed judges—including academics, the press, and design professionals. Winners are announced on April 15, 2017 and will have their works printed in a special edition hardback book as well as a ton of other great prizes.
