Staples 3D Printing Challenge: It's Time To Do Some Paperwork!
Have you ever wondered how would your 3D model look printed? Printed on paper. Yes, I said 3D, and I said on paper! To be precise, printed out of paper. Well, now you have an excellent chance to become the Michelangelo of the 21st century.
Do you remember all those paper-cutting handiworks which you were doing in art class at school? I do. All that symmetrical cutting of simple designs. Though, the process of making it still looked kind of magical back then.
We suggest to remember it and revive the art of paper with an outstanding 3D printing technology. Oh yeah, and we have a 1000 EUR prize for the winner! And a possibility to sell your 3D printed works in one of the largest office supply retailers in the world - Staples. These treasures will be available for the best 3 designers. How about that?
There are no limits for your imagination. However, there are some technical requirements - the models you submit should be suitable for the MCor Iris printer. There are 3 simple steps you need to take to participate in this challenge - create a printable 3D model, upload it to CGTrader.com and upload it to Staples myeasy3D store. You must to it untill the deadline - October 21st, 2013.
