Student Thermoformed Part Competition Winners

plastics & design

Freetech Plastics student thermoformed parts competition continued to get more challenging in 2011.

The Freetech Plastics Student Thermoformed Part competition is designed to stimulate use of the thermoforming process in design and engineering schools. The Finalists from 5 different Schools had their entries judged at the 2011 Industrial Designers Society of America Conference in New Orleans LA.

1st place and $2500 went to Grayson Byrd from Georgia Tech for the Casper Chair. This chair combines a plywood frame which is then over molded with styrene sheet which holds the entire structure together. The judges admired the clever combination of materials and the use of a feature of thermoforming which is usually avoided but which in this case provides the means to hold the supporting structure in place without the need for fasteners or adhesives.

2nd Place and $1500 went to Jerrold Anchetta from University of California At San Jose State. As part of a class project he produced a Bud Vase that the judges found quite appealing. The vase required 2 different molds plus some Fabrication and assembly.

3rd place and $1000 went to Zheyan Hong from Auburn University. She spent time at construction sites looking for ways to make finishing concrete easier and came up with a Rotatable Knee Board. It was formed in 2 parts, a base to lay on the concrete and the knee board which then rotates giving the finisher additional range of motion.

The purpose of the Freetech Plastics Student parts competition is to encourage Collage and University Industrial Design and Engineering Students to design and then manufacture a product using the Thermoforming Process.

The contest is judged by both Senior Industrial Designers, and Thermoforming experts. The prizes are awarded on both design creativity and best use of the Thermoforming Process. The awards are announced during the IDSA National conference in the design gallery. In 2012 they will become a regular feature of the IDSA conference and part of the Materials and Processes Section Program.
