The Materialise Slot Car Championship races over to Germany, a country that’s known around the world for its car manufacturing industry, for one last contest. More specifically, we went to Frankfurt for EuroMold, the world’s leading trade fair for design and application development, moldmaking and tooling. Over the course of 2014, Materialise organized a series of slot car races where participants could let their imagination run wild and 3D print their slot cars which they made with a whole range of Additive Manufacturing technologies. What better way to show visitors what’s possible with 3D Printing than racing slot cars while enjoying a beer?
