Teams wrapped up the test phase of the challenge the week of October 23, 2017. Each team selected a component of its pavilion design for test 3D printing. The resulting prototype models provided teams with valuable information about material properties, effects, fitting and connections. For many teams, this is their first time printing or utilizing a dual material 3D printer. Each team will use the experience learned from their tests to tweak and refine their models and to coordinate with their Entuitive partners how the architectural and structural components will fit together.
Final printing begins October 26, 2017 and will run until November 5, 2017.
