3D + Designing + Printing = 3DP = a 3D Printed Pin for IDSA.
Unleash your creativity to come up with a 3D Printable IDSA Lapel Pin. In support of the theme for this year's
Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) 2014 Northeast District Design Conference, "Design it, Build it, Fund it," IDSA is collaborating with MakerBot, GrabCAD and NRI to launch IDSA’s Designed to Print Pin Challenge.
Using the IDSA logo as your guide and the ability for the pin to be 3D Printed as your constraint, come up with a 3D design of the lapel pin no larger than 3inches in diameter.
Think about the how the 3D printability of the end result will support the design, how the printing process could even support the snapping or attaching onto a lapel. Leverage the 3D printing capabilities to balance form and function. Use this challenge as an outlet for you and your design team to reimagine how additive manufacturing can allow you to make something today that could not be built before. Then submit your pin to the Challenge in STL format with a 3D CAD file of your choice.
MakerBot will award a new MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer for the best design. TOP 15 places get their design 3D printed and Hardi Meybaum's book. How cool is that?
