When it comes to 3D-printed jewellery, the new technology is redefining our notion of what is possible. We know the current trends and they’re exciting, but what could really blow everyone’s minds is peeking into the future and bringing those visions to life through 3D printing.

3D printing is said to be completely transforming jewellery industry, but we need a proof. This time we want you to give the fashion world a little shake...

In a society where everyone's striving to stand out, custom products can certainly be the ace in your pocket. Jewellery is an essential part of a stylish look and it’s such a broad range of products, too! Everything from rings, earrings and pendants to headwear or belt buckles is 3d printed fashion.

Can you think of a time when you wanted to purchase a unique piece of jewellery, but couldn't find one that you really liked? Wrong colour, size or a too mainstream design? Sure you can, we've all been there. That's what we're talking about. The 3D Printable Jewellery challenge is all about the eye-catching, memorable jewellery designs that are created to impress and match your 3d clothes.

Do us a favour and dazzle us with your creativity.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I need to upload files or only images of my 3D design?

    You need to upload files and images of your 3D design in order to participate in the challenge.

    I don't want to put my entry model for sale. Do you have any suggestions?

    Does earning money from your digital files sounds like a bad idea? Just try to put higher price on it, let's say 300 USD.

    I don't want to loose copyrights on my model after it is sold.

    There are General, Editorial and Custom licenses for you to choose under which you want to operate. Individuals or companies which bought your model can't use it for commercial purposes if it hasn't been changed. So no worries - you won't loose the copyright.

    How can I participate in the challenge?

    Design awesome 3D printable jewellery models and upload them to CGTrader.

    What if I put the required tag on my already published 3D model on CGTrader - do you treat it as a valid entry?

    No. Only 3D models uploaded in the period from the 14th of July to the 8th of September 2014 will be treated as valid entries.

    Do free 3D models participate in the challenge?

    Yes, absolutely. Sharing artwork is always appreciated in the community.

    Can I enter with 3D models which participated in other challenges elsewhere?

    Yes. There are no restrictions on publishing and selling your models elsewhere.

    Do price tags play any importance when entries are being judged?

    No. But do not forget that the prices are always judged by the customers.

    I want to participate in the challenge so I am going to delete my already uploaded models and upload them again to meet the "publishing period" requirement. Can I do that?

    No. We are tracking every deleted and uploaded model, so it is useless to drive-through our requirements of the challenge.
