Innovative Product Designs Honored in 2015 Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge

We’re pleased to announce the winners of the 11th annual Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge.

er-logoThis worldwide contest gives students in secondary and post-secondary educational institutions the opportunity to redesign an existing product or to create a new product that improves how a task is accomplished. Entries were evaluated based on creativity, being mechanically sound and being realistically achievable.

More than 750 students worldwide submitted designs for this year’s contest.

The judges this year were industry experts Tim Shinbara of the Association for Manufacturing Technology, Patrick Gannon a 3D printing industry veteran, Leslie Langnau of Design World magazine and Todd Grimm of T.A. Grimm and Associates.
