GrabCAD 3D Print Spaceship Design Challenge

Medium

GrabCAD is looking to see who has what it takes to create an amazing full color 3D printable spaceship model. Since we have had a lot of NASA challenges in the past, we want to go back into space with a full-color Spaceship model design challenge. You will be given free reign to come up with an original design of a spaceship. We want to see what colors you can put on your model, as well as textures. The top spaceship designs will be 3D printed with our own Stratasys J750 PolyJet 3D printer and sent to the winners. So start your thrusters and get designing!

The goal of the challenge is to see if you can design a cool spaceship that will be 3D printed in full color via our Stratasys J750 Printer. The only limits to this challenge are your imagination and the build volume of the printer. You should design your spaceship with multi-color, multi-polyjet material, and multi-texture in mind.

For any help on how to add colors or textures to your model via GrabCAD Print and on how to select a Stratasys J750 to check out these GrabCAD tutorials.(Include a link to the Selecting a J750 in GCP and selecting color/material in GCP tutorials).

    It is an interesting challenge. I'll hopefully have a few models entered.
    There's no sense in complaining about the rules and guidelines, but I do find them odd. Especially since this site is primarily focused on traditional CAD software, and less about colors, textures, and the artistic/sculpting programs which are used to apply textures, UV maps, and "paint" to 3D meshes.
    Hans' models could/should be able to win hands down once scaled to fit the build envelope. But the trick is going to be applying color and texture to the models.
    It looks like it is going to be time for many of us to learn some new software, and skills in the next three weeks if there is a desire to win, or at least enter something with a chance of winning.
    A spaceship I recently rendered for fun is below. It has good details modeled into it, but it is hardly what I'd call "colorful". I'd hate for a spaceship to end up looking like a clown car just to win :) https://img.frl/jenu2

    "Swag" is a term for (typically small) prizes or gifts given away by companies. This usually occurs at trade shows, but can happen anywhere.
    Typical items include stickers, notebooks, pens, shirts, hats, water bottles, bottle openers, flashlights...etc.
    The items are generally branded with the name of the company giving away the item(s), but that is not always true.

    "Size dosn't matter" right? If the build is limited to 8"x3"x3", just look at it as part of the design contest. How can you work with such a limitation?
    8x3x3 isn't an odd size. This commercial model kit is 9"x2"x3": https://www.amazon.com/Bandai-Hobby-Garmillas-Warships-Model/dp/B009X3OI08/ref=sr_1_25?keywords=star+blazers+models&qid=1557177301&s=gateway&sr=8-25
    If "real" kits are made and sold at this scale, it seems reasonable that we could one to meet the same limitations. That's what we do, make items based on constraints.

    Hi, I've just exported my file in the VRML. format but none of my 3D modelling softwares can read the file, so I don't know if the shaders and textures were exported with the model. Could you please let me know if I've made the correct file with all the colors visable? (I rendered in VRED, what's the best export format for this software).
    Thanks

    Please add support for colored step files (AP214), OR colored STL files to a future version of GrabCAD Print. VRML and OBJ files are a nightmare to work with.
    Hopefully the winner will be partially determined by who can create a model without error flags in GrabCAD Print. The tricky part of course being that GrabCAD Print will not repair colored models. I think I have an equal amount of time spent between modeling, and export/import/repairing :)

    We do have Clear material in the J750 Printer. To color your material you can do it in Software such as Rhino but if your parts are separate you can color them in GrabCAD print.

    It is 12:45 EST now, so there should be "about 11 hours" remaining. I guess I'd better upload a model in about 8 hours to be safe.

    Hopefully all the colors in the models comes across. I noticed only a few VRML files have multiple colors when viewed in the GrabCAD 3D Viewer.
    Personally, I found the VRML format challenging to work with, but all my models had color when uploaded. I also included the .Print files as a backup plan. It would be great to incorporate Step(214), and color STL support into GrabCAD Print

    Good news. If a colored vrml file is downloaded from GrabCAD, the colors are retained even if the GrabCAD viewer shows only a solid gray model.
    I experimented with some VRML files tonight, and the GC Viewer only seems to display colors when the entire part is colored in SOLIDWORKS. Coloring features, or model faces does not work.

    The main task of GrabCad is a community of engineers who help each other with 3d models, drawings, consultations. And the various events-it's a nice bonus. I believe you need to respect the time of the jury and if they are doing something in your opinion for a long time - they have every right to, since they are the organizers. Hans will confirm, other sites usually steal model precisely from here)))

    @wowo...Thanks for your kind remark about my culture and lack of humor...perhaps it is because I see so many Germans visiting our beautifull beaches in the summer....something will rub off......

    @wowo Just for your information: http://www.mfcad.com/tuzhi/wlkj/ That is why I reacted on the Chinese member who has been a member for 4 months, but who is "watching" our entries (and this website) for a much longer time.....I am not accusing anybody, but the fact stays that lots of our models appear in this (and more) chinese pirate 3D websites.....There are more Chinese members who believe our models are worth downloading only to have them uploaded as their own work .....unfortunately your model was not good enough to steal (this is humor!!!) but lots of other models from this challenge got a second chance in China....

    Congratulations to the finalists.
    During the contest I utilized a checklist to insure all requirements were met. Looking through the finalist models, there is only one entry that meets all the requirements (hint, it's the SRB-11).
    Many of the entries do not include material/time estimates, the correct file format(s), are too large to fit the build envelope, or once scaled to fit have VERY thin walls (.010"-.020") which is not good for a Polyjet printer. It was not listed as a requirement, but errors in models would ideally have some weight.
    My favorite designs which meet most of the requirements are the Alienannihilator, the G-S-S, and the NHSS.
    To help deflect accusations of favoritism for my own entry, I will say that the SRB-11 is not my favorite model of my five entries.

    Congratulations finalists! I think you can print more designs. There is also the possibility of scaling. @FredSWUG got in! :) And I see a lot of nice work, but I'm sure the jury's right decision.

    wowo, The prizes were posted and known upfront. The decision of how much time to put into a model could be dictated by the value of the prize, but building a good model can be a reward on it's own.
    These smaller challenges are a great idea. Without a need for expensive prizes, there can be more challenges to get more members involved.
    Hopefully this mini-challenge was a successful test, and we'll see more in the future. I think a challenge to design some of the new/future GrabCAD Badges would be interesting. I'd be bad at it, but there are a lot of talented designers on GrabCAD that are a great resource for such work.

    @Adam,stratasys, will be happy about your comment for sure! But a company that makes millions in sales, should offer its potential customers something more than a t-shirt.

    Even though i did not get to finalists list, i started a graphic story about Space Cat and Birdie in rendered pictures, built more models (unfortunately late to add them to this challenge), learnt more about rendering in AutoCAD. So i will have what to share more.

    First of all, I would like to congratulate the winner! I'm glad you mentioned my design in a few sentences. I am looking forward to the next challenge and maybe I will find a place in the first three! I'm sorry I didn't get "grabcadswag" but next time I try better.

    I'll meet you later and I wish you all the best! :)

    The Infinity is taking 3rd place but still a fantastic model. The Retro Video game style of this ship is something that stood out from the rest of the models. SHUBBAK3D had a very interesting way he created this model and laid them out on the tray in GrabCAD Print and definitely deserves to be in the top 3.
    I could not find this member and his/her work please help me to see it

    Hello @MAB ( Mehmet ),I’m Shubbak3D, I have just seen your comment. Thank you so much! Actually, all my models were deleted and my account was suspended for no reason! On 07.25.2019, I received a message from someone called Matt Firmani telling me that he deleted all my models and suspended my account, claiming lack of 3D files. I asked him to restore the deleted models and reactivate my account so that I can review all the models and add the alleged missing files. Unfortunately, he did not even respond to my emails until this moment as if he just wants to remove me from GRABCAD! I'm really upset of that.
