This is the seventh time that the 3D and 4D printing award for the purmundus challenge has been presented in Frankfurt. A total of 38 finalists now stand a chance of winning the prestigious purmundus challenge trophy. The award ceremony will be broadcast live from the Formnext exhibition via the Facebook portal. In addition to the first three places, this year there will once again be a “special mention” and an “innovation prize”. A prize for the “people’s choice”, voted for over the course of the fair by visitors to Formnext 2019, completes the purmundus challenge.
