Recognizing the need to promote entrepreneurial minds in the area of 3D printing, EPICentre partnered with Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare to initiate a first of a kind 3D Print for Healthcare Competition in the Windsor-Essex County. Students, alumni and community teams worked throughout a four-month period to identify, design and print a device that will benefit the healthcare industry using 3D printing technology. The final showcase and presentation took place at EPICentre on January 8. We would like to congratulate the following winners and a special thanks to the award sponsors:
- Tim Postma ($1000 cash prize sponsored by the University of Windsor Alumni Association)
- Kalkin Shelat (“Prescription for the Future” award sponsored by TechTown Detroit)
- Donald Leung (“WEtech Alliance Innovation” award sponsored by WEtech Alliance)
In addition, we would also like to thank our 3D printing partners: PepCo, OLT Footcare, UWin_3D Print Club, Printable Canada, Kelcom, PrintDry and St. Clair College.
