Students worldwide: This season’s Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge will open on September 2 for entries. Read the contest rules to get started. Since the contest’s inception 12 years ago, Stratasys has awarded more than $130,000 in scholarships to innovative students and their instructors.
Our vision for this year’s challenge is “make a difference.” Strive to make a positive impact by redesigning a product for greater accessibility, eco-friendliness or human empowerment. Share your design and explain how it can make a difference for individuals, communities or the environment.
As an added bonus, if you’re a member school with the National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers (NCATC), you have the chance to be selected as the Coalition’s top entry in the post-secondary category.
Send us your best design in the form of an STL file, and tell us why your design improves on the existing engineering solution or why it’s a great original or redesigned work. Winning entries will be creative, mechanically sound and realistically achievable.
Winners will receive scholarships, and the instructor of the first place winner in each category will receive a limited-time demo 3D printer for classroom use.
