MINNEAPOLIS — The Dimension 3D Printing Group, a business unit of Stratasys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSYS), announced today less than one month remains to submit a design for its fifth annual “Extreme Redesign: The Ultimate 3D Printing Challenge,” a global design and 3D printing contest for students that awards scholarships to winners.
Dimension’s Extreme Redesign contest calls on computer-aided-design (CAD) students worldwide to submit their most creative, useful and innovative redesigns. Whether it’s a new perspective on an everyday product or a fresh vision for updating a famous piece of art, animation or architecture, Dimension will award student winners $2,500 or $1,000 scholarships based on their design’s creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetic. Dimension also will award teachers of the three first place student winners a laptop computer for use in the classroom.
“Now in its fifth year, Extreme Redesign continues to challenge and reward CAD students for their creative design efforts, with the ultimate goal of inspiring more to pursue careers in design engineering,” said Jon Cobb, vice president and general manager of 3D printing for Stratasys. “We look forward to reviewing another round of creative submissions in all three categories and are thrilled to provide contestants a venue to share their concepts with the world.”
To enter the high school or university engineering categories, students need to identify an existing product and redesign it, making the original design better by adding new functionality or aesthetic qualities. For submissions in the art and architecture category, the emphasis should be on originality and the overall beauty or aesthetic of the design.
Once the design is complete, students send an .stl file of their Extreme Redesign, a completed submission form and a 200-word description or 30 second video conveying the value and benefit of the Extreme Redesign part via Dimension’s Web site.
Final submissions must be postmarked by Feb. 1, 2009. A panel of independent judges from various industries will judge final entries on the basis of creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetics. Winners will be selected in April 2009. Complete contest rules and submission information is available at www.dimensionprinting.com/education/extremeredesign.shtml.
