Home 3D Printing Challenge: Shopping Malls? Fork Them!


Once again, CGTrader is on a mission to change the world and make it more 3D printable. This time 3D printing is going to occupy... your home. And every other home all around the world. People always need something for their home environment, whether it is just a simple fork or some handy innovation they haven't heard about yet. While a few years ago going to the shopping mall to bag a set of cutlery seemed like the only option, we are now facing a completely new world. Why go shopping if you can 3D print whatever you need at home?

You can be part of this change and there are a lot of reasons to do that.

CGTrader.com Redesigned: The New Reality Is Here

CGTrader.com Redesigned: The New Reality Is Here


CGTrader designers are so talented, that buyers sometimes think their models are real. A car for 119 USD? A pair of shoes for 30 USD? No wonder the customers sometimes get confused with these amazing, photorealistic 3D models available for sale.

And yet, 3D models are actually becoming real. 3D printing can turn many digital 3D models to real, physical products. This technology is becoming a viable alternative to factories and production lines, changing the rules of manufacturing and placing a 3D designer at the center of this transformation. While some 3D printing technologies still produce low-quality prints, that is changing fast – and we see this very clearly in our sales data on CGTrader.

To take advantage of this monumental shift, we have introduced some changes in CGTrader.com. The new CGTrader.com is split into two parts: computer graphics for professionals and 3D printing for consumers.

Computer graphics 3D models will be bought and sold by professionals in the same way they have always been – with a few improvements listed below. In 3D printing the sellers have three options: sell 3D models, stream 3D models directly to the printer, or sell real, physical 3D printed products. If the first option is probably well-known for you, the other ones are something new.

3D Sci-Fi Challenge: Extend The Universe

3D Sci-Fi Challenge: Extend The Universe


Attention!

Something went wrong in the parallel universe and it affected the one where we all live. There is not so much livable space left. It is the time, when the entire human race need to move in order to find new home. Of course, such disorder has its consequences - the races of the Universe had split in two sides. Members of the first one call themselves Enraged Verticians. They are willing to take control of the whole Universe and the resources needed to create livable conditions, for example: oxygen and food. They have united to become the dominant force of the Universe. There is another side - Polyguardians, who have only one intention - to re-establish the peace and order.

How did this conflict arise? Why does it involve you? Do not stress, it is not real. On the other hand, it is - it is a real offer for you to join the 3D Sci-Fi Challenge and become a king of the Universe. This time you must choose who you are - a revolutionist or a peacemaker. Remember this - it will be very important in the end. The members of the stronger side will be awarded with special prizes.

Christmas 3D Printing Challenge: Conquer Santa's Workshop

Christmas 3D Printing Challenge: Conquer Santa's Workshop


Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle - call him whatever you want, but he is not on your side right now.

Are you getting same gifts each year? Yes, Santa's elves make them in the workshop at the North Pole and somehow manage to distribute all of them all over the world through one night. But, what the hell! How come some of those gifts are under some worldwide known brands? The Santa "mafia" must be crazy powerful... Just think about it - if they can force the corporations to work for them, they probably can do anything. Not! There is still something left. Something so powerful that it can turn the world upside down. And you can use it and take a part in this snowy challenge.

Welcome to Christmas 3D Printing Challenge. Your mission is to perform better than Santa and his elves. These aces of Christmas gift-giving have been in this business for about 200 years already. It is time to change the game!
