3D Printing startup “FUTURERA” :

Six students launch their 3D Printing startup “FUTURERA” on campus @ KVCET INCUBATION CELL

The hype of consumer 3D printing might be fizzling, but the excitement continues to build for industrial applications. It’s a market still ripe for innovation and as expected there has been a surge of startup activity in the field of 3D Printing. A Startup based on 3D Printing Technology, FUTURERA was launched at the Incubation Cell of Karpaga Vinayaga College of Engineering and Technology. Six Students of Final year Engineering Chinthamani K (MECH), Harishankar R (MECH), Abinesh VM (BME), Eswar RM (BME), Salman Rashith B (BME), Guruprasath S (ECE) have come together to set up this startup on campus. The Startup was launched on 23rd April 2021. The event was presided by Dr. Meenakshi Annamalai, Director, KVCET in the presence of Dr. P. Kasinatha Pandian, Principal, KVCET. Mr. Bharath Kumar, Managing Director, Nowa Labs was the Chief Guest.

Technology behind FUTURERA: It’s time that we now talk about e-Manufacturing/digital manufacturing which will be smart and fashionable. It’s time to talk about manufacturing with “Zero Defect Zero Effect”. Manufacturing locally to produce “Made by you”, “Made in India” product. The focus of FUTURERA is on niche domains such as dentistry, prosthetics, jewellery, construction, etc. They are manufacturing Consumer Products such as gadgets, jewellery, home decor, and art in multiple material options, where people themselves explore and create their own products instead of selecting from a shop. “The next frontier is to apply 3D printing to the production of parts for final products. This is where the largest opportunities lie and where most investments will be made in the future” says R.M. Eshwar, Final Year BioMedical Engineering Student.
