  • The “Make your toothbrush real!” project by Paolo Minetola obtained the third place in the "Make it Real" challenge promoted by the Stratasys company in collaboration with the GrabCAD platform (February 2019). The competition required to design and present a product that could be reproduced with high realism and fidelity using a Stratasys J750 industrial 3D printer. The challenge required to exploit the potential of the Stratasys J750 system by combining several materials with variable shore values, textures, transparency, and/or full-vivid colors to enable realism in a single print. The project was selected from over two hundred projects by a jury made up of four experts with the following motivation “his model exploits the ability of the J750 system to make some parts rigid, while others are soft and flexible”.
