2018 6th Singapore International 3D Printing Competition: Make Singapore car-lite by designing personal mobility vehicles

Personal mobility vehicles are the perfect solution to Singapore's transition to car-lite transportation. Not only is the cost affordable for many commuters, the speed and portability of these devices make travelling an enjoyable experience. Designed with the latest cutting-edge technology, these amazing devices help you get to your destination in style. This increasingly popular mode of transport has spurred numerous innovations and introduced a range of devices into the market geared to every whim and need, from trendy e-scooters to electric wheelchairs. In addition, city dwellers are also resorting to mobility devices as a sustainable and green alternative form of transport. With 3D printing, personal mobility vehicles with custom-made parts for better maneuverability and stability can now be produced.

This year, we challenge aspiring designers to 3D print versatile, sleek and light personal transportation vehicle that can be tailored to suit users of various age groups. The competition calls for harnessing the potential of 3D printing to spur innovative concepts for enhancing personal mobility.

2018 6th Singapore International 3D Printing Competition: Mobility devices - a transport solution for the elderly

Venturing out for some fresh air might be a tiring and arduous task for many senior citizens. To make travelling a breeze for the elderly, new inventions have emerged as a form of mobility aid. For instance, a walking stick that can double as a seat, a smart guidance device with LED lights and a GPS device incorporated wheelchair. The power, speed and portability of these devices improve the lives of the aged and enhance their physical and emotional well-being. With Singapore's rapidly ageing population, the aged is a key demographic that needs to be considered, for they will be active users of personal mobility devices. With 3D printing, custom-made parts for better manoeuvrability and stability can now be produced.

This year, we challenge aspiring designers to 3D print versatile, sleek and light personal transportation devices that can be tailored to suit the needs of the elderly. The competition calls for harnessing the potential of 3D printing to spur innovative concepts for helping senior citizens move around independently and minimise the risk of accidents.
