For the seventh year, Dimension 3D Printing, a brand of Stratasys Inc. (NASDAQ: SSYS), has held its Annual Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge for high school, college, art, and architecture students to submit innovative designs.
These designs can be entirely original concepts, a new perspective on an existing product, or a work of art, animation, or architecture. The competition is nearly finished, and the company recently posted the finalists on its website. In past years, the winners and their designs were posted—which is always a fun time to visit to see what future engineers and artists can create. You can still see past years winning creations.
Dimension 3D Printing will again award the top three students $2,500 or $1,000 scholarships in the categories of High School Engineering, College Engineering, and Art & Architecture. Designs are evaluated on creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetics. Instructors of the three first-place student winners will receive a laptop computer for use in the classroom. Since the contest began seven years ago, more than $65,000 in scholarships has been awarded to students.
In addition to the above mentioned categories, this year’s contest will feature two bonus award categories in which students may compete for $250. The first bonus category asks students to create a fresh design twist on an existing building or bridge. The second bonus category challenges students to create an intriguing puzzle or game.
