Each year Stratasys sponsors a 3D print design contest for students at various levels of academia. Often the contest produces amazing innovations and we expect no less this year.
They're expecting STL files to be submitted that exhibit "creativity, practicality and mechanical function".
As in previous years' contests, three categories of entry exist: Middle & High School Engineering, College Engineering, Art & Architecture. Ten winners will be selected from each category, eligible for awards of cash, 3D prints and of course exposure of their innovation to the world.
A new prize has been added. A "limited time demo 3D printer" will be awarded to the instructor of each first place winner. Teachers, you know what this means - get your students involved!
You've got plenty of time to work on your entry, as the contest entry process closes on February 6th, 2014.
