He said: “It is a very prestigious competition. Rapid prototyping and 3D printing is the future and to have a prize in this arena shows that I am proactively seeking out solutions for the future. The judges liked my idea because it was innovative. The prize money will come in very useful but the networking I have experienced through the placement and the competition are more valuable than anything.”
