Stratasys Kicks Off 3D Printing Challenge

Plastics Business

Each year, Stratasys, Eden Prairie, MN, invites innovators in middle school, high school and college to compete for scholarships and other prizes awarded to the most inventive original or reimagined products in engineering, art and architecture.

The Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge, now in its 10th year, features designs that are created on 3D CAD software. Designs are due Feb. 6, 2014. Stratasys will award the top three student winners in each category either $2,500 or $1,000 scholarships. Awards are based on creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetics. Instructors of the first-place student winner in each category will receive a limited-time demo 3D printer to use in the classroom.

Each submission must be a sound mechanical design; be realistic and achievable; and include a clear written description of the design. For more information, visit www.stratasys.com.
