Kuala Lumpur, Mar 26, 2013 – 3D printing which is also known as addictive printing, is a concept which allows material to be molded via printing techniques, using 3D software technology by joining materials layer by layer.

There is an ongoing 3D Printed Accessory Design Challenge organised by Materialise, a Belgian-based pioneer in Additive Manufacturing software and solution, in collaboration with award-winning Malaysian fashion designer Melinda Looi, who will play the role of co-judge.

The challenge is open to all who has a flare for design.
