The 10th annual Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge, from Stratasys, has named the top 10 finalists in each of its three categories: Art & Architecture, Middle & High School Engineering and College Engineering. An additional person was named the winner for the bonus category, Extreme Sports.
More than 600 entries were received from all over the world, covering 12 different countries. Participants created designs using 3D modeling software and submitted them online. The entries were then evaluated based on creativity, soundness of engineering and achievability.
In the next phase of the contest first, second and third place winners will be selected from each category. Experts in the fields of design, engineering and 3D printing will judge the finalists. Up for this year’s task are:
- Todd Grimm – President of T.A. Grimm & Associates
- Patrick Gannon – Engineering Manager at Thogus/RP+M
- Tim Shinbara – Technical Director of the Association for Manufacturing Technology
- Rachel Park – Editor-In-Chief of 3D Printing Industry
The first place winners in each category will receive a $2,500 scholarship. The instructors of the first place winners are granted the use of a 3D printer in their classroom for a limited time. Second and third place winners receive a $1,000 scholarship each. All of the finalists each receive a $50 gift card, and a 3D printed model of their entry.
In the ten years that the contest has been running, Stratasys has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships! For more information about the contest, including descriptions of previous winning entries, please visit the Extreme Redesign page on the Stratasys website.
