Multiple Competition Skill Building Other


The Gulf 3D Printing Olympiad was created with the aim to inspire young student entrepreneurs. The theme of the Olympiad was to ‘Design Your First Consumer Product’ – a theme inspired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision of innovation for Dubai and the UAE.

The participants were asked to design a product and 3D print a model of that product which could help them in their everyday lives.

Do you have an imagination that pushes the boundaries of reality? Does your mind keep thinking of ways to test the limits of possibilities?

Then bring your innovation alive in a 3D printed form to let the world see your brilliance at the biggest 3D Printing Olympiad ever held in the GCC!
