Materialise Goes to the Races, Helping University Students Design and Race a Stylish 3D Printed Car

There are a lot of unusual racing events that take place around the world, but I never would have imagined racing vehicles powered by electric screwdrivers. That is, however, exactly what takes place at the biennial Akkuschrauberrennen cordless screwdriver race on the campus of HAWK Hochschule (HAWK University of Applied Sciences and Arts) in Hildesheim, Germany. It’s like a modernized, university-level […]
