IAM3D®: Innovative Additive Manufacturing 3D Challenge

ATTENTION E-FESTERS!  Please read this important announcement about

ASME E-Fests® and ASME EFx® Events in the academic years 2022 & 2023

We will be returning to IN-PERSON ASME EFx® events in the academic year 2022-2023!  EFx events will be IN-PERSON locally organized throughout the world and several EFx events will include our ASME competitions.  Please visit the ASME E-Fest website for an updated list of events at https://efests.asme.org/.  Events will be added as they are confirmed. 

ASME will ALSO continue to host our two signature FULLY virtual events:  E-Fest Careers (Nov. 12, 2022) and E-Fest Digital (March 25, 2023). 

We encourage students, competitors, and faculty members to take advantage of the learning experiences provided by both our competitions and other digital offerings throughout the year.  Questions may be directed to efests@asme.org.

Not all EFx events will have every competition available. Check that IAM3D® is available at that event before registering.
