Dimension 3D Printing Group announced nine finalists in three categories for the Extreme Design Contest, a competition to highlight the talents of young designers and highlight the power of 3D printing’s ability to solve a great variety of problems. The finalists were chosen from 800 entries worldwide entries, with three finalists in each of the three categories; University, High-School, and Arts & Architecture. Entrants in the University and High School categories were encouraged to produce designs that redefined an existing product to improve that product’s function. Submissions to the Arts & Architecture category were expected to produce original designs with an emphasis on aesthetics.
You can see the list of finalists and their entries at the Dimension 3D Printing Group’s website. The designs runt a gamut of solutions, from the utilitarian to the culinary. It’s a shame we can’t see all the entries, I would love to see what the other 791 entrants designed. However, if you’re so inclined, you can view past contest winners at the finalist website. The winners in each category will be announced on May 20th.
