As you may already know, Stratasys is leading the way in how designers, engineers and innovators use 3D printing to solve complex challenges. For this challenge imagine you have unique access to best in class full-color multi-material PolyJet 3D printers. With that in mind we invite you to unleash your creativity and show us what is possible knowing that the winning work will be printed on this powerful design tool.
The challenge: design a “pebble” to showcase PolyJet capabilities and you could win a gift card, swag bag and special recognition. This special competition is open to all designers worldwide. The challenge asks you to showcase your ideas and skills while exploring the capabilities of full color, multi-material 3D printing. The winner should be able to provide a compelling written explanation of the characteristics they are showcasing, the design inspiration (origin of where the design idea came from), and how they iterated through their design cycle. The final submission will include this narrative, any relevant images, and the files (OBJ, STL or VRML) to produce a fully printable and well-designed 3D model. The more information supplied the better – images, renderings, videos and screenshots of the
design are encouraged! Winning models will demonstrate a specific set of capabilities within the build specifications given in the requirements below.
Entries will be accepted from Wednesday, July 1st through Monday, 3rd of August. and Winners will be announced mid-September.
