The experience has certainly been one of the highlights of PrintLab since our inception and we are excited to develop make:able for many years to come!
The votes are in! Today we're delighted to share with you the winners of the 2021 make:able challenge, hosted by PrintLab, Autodesk and partners. If you're joining us for the first time, make:able is a yearly student challenge and this year's brief was to 'design and make a product or prototype that improves the day-to-day life of someone who struggles with mobility in their hands'. Before we get to the results, we'd like to say a huge thank you to all the educators, students, judges, partners and supporters involved. The experience has certainly been one of the highlights of PrintLab since our inception and we are excited to develop make:able for many years to come!
The judging process involved using an online collaboration tool called Mural, which can be described as a giant digital whiteboard, to display each of the finalist portfolios in their respective categories. Judges carefully looked through portfolios and selected their top solution from each category, before votes were counted.
We were so incredibly proud of not only the winners but every submitted portfolio. Therefore we have made the decision to share the full judging Mural publicly - allowing you to view all finalist portfolios, together with the judges comments. You can access the Mural here.
The winners of each category are also highlighted below and in the coming weeks, we'll be making some announcements on next year's make:able - stay tuned!
