Extreme Redesign: Art, Jewelry and Architecture

Medium

Create an inspired 3D printable design in Art, Jewelry or Architecture.

About Extreme Redesign

Open to students worldwide, Extreme Redesign is an annual 3D printing challenge created by Stratasys, Inc. that invites students to design an original piece of art, jewelry or architecture, or to make an existing design better. This year, extreme redesign features 3 categories:

Engineering: Secondary Education (middle/high school students)
Engineering: Post-Secondary (university, college, or post-secondary students)
Art, Jewelry & Architecture (student of any grade level)

Don't have access to a 3D printer? No problem! To enter, individual students or teams must create and submit their designs files in .STL format with a compelling description highlighting the design's inspiration, meaning and impact. The more info the better – images, renderings, videos and screen shots of the design are encouraged!

Entries will be accepted through ( ), but the earlier you submit, the more opportunity you have to get feedback on your design and have a chance to improve it and re-upload improved files before the submission window closes.

The Art, Jewelry and Architecture Category

In this category, you are encouraged to use your imagination and express your creativity in submitting an artistic, unique and original design that takes full advantage of capabilities offered by 3D printing. Consider different 3D printing methodologies (FDM, SLS, SLA and PolyJet) and materials available, and pick the best method for the production of your design. We are looking for designs that are aesthetically pleasing and evoke emotion. In this category, the description is especially important - and we encourage you to be creative with the description as well! Let us know what inspired your design, what is the meaning of your design and what impact you'd like it to have.

Check out images of some of the past winners of Extreme Redesign Art, Jewelry or Architecture below, or visit Extreme Redesign Challenge winners page here. You can also see some of the past challenge submissions uploaded on the Stratasys Education Extreme Redesign GrabCAD account here.

Who Can Enter

This category is open to students (enrolled in person or coursework online) of all ages. Entrants under the age of 18 must have their entries submitted by a parent or guardian over the age of 18.

All team members must be enrolled as a student in an educational institution or online program during the semester/term in which they contribute to the design. The Challenge is not open to any persons employed, past or present, as a professional in 3D printing.

    When you ask for material selected, do you mean we have to list it in the description or the actually material file?

    In the rules they have said that 'Proof that your design can be 3d printed (screen capture from a 3d printing service, or photo of the printed design)' and at the same time 'Don't have access to a 3D printer? No problem! To enter, individual students or teams must create and submit their designs files in .STL format with a compelling description highlighting the design's inspiration, meaning and impact. The more info the better – images, renderings, videos and screen shots of the design are encouraged!' this is also mentioned. it is a bit contradictory as per my knowledge. I am unable to use any 3D printer, so can I participate?

    Hello Kippy Lav - Yes, you should include the material you would print the design within the open description field. This is not mandatory. You can upload design rendering images and the STL file for your entry.

    What is the limit in terms of overall dimensions of the model to be raised? If I do not have a 3D printer, does my model apply if I upload render and photos of my model's development?
