We all have dreams. To be sincere, we often dream about material things - devices, stylish clothes, jewelry, cars and houses. Big mansions, fancy villas, complex skyscrapers or even scrubby but detailed cribs. Feel free to dream about anything you want. And to show it to others.
When you were a kid, you probably liked to draw a lot. Kids often draw houses or their rooms. It is relevant - home is the place where we spend most of our time, so we have a vivid remembrance of it. Later we spend significant amount of time at work. Actually, we are almost always surrounded by buildings. Whether we are inside or outside, there is architecture all around us.
Thereby, listen up all those who will dare to take this challenge - our advice is simple - look around! There are a lot of inspiring buildings in the cities we live in. Also, everything with an unconventional shape can be an inspiration for a form of a building or a detail of the interior.

September and the first half of October was a tough time for all of our designers, who are keen gamers. They were invited to put away controllers of their game consoles and work hard on game models instead. And they did! We can just guess what inspired them. Whatever it was - it made great impact. This one was really challenging for us - designers made a great stack of incredible models. However, some of them were better than the others. And here they are.
Last month was a busy one: we announced the winners of 3D Character Challenge, started Staples 3D Printing Challenge and got 3D Game Model Challenge going on. We expected to have some innovative models which could make an impact on design for computer games. The results surpassed our expectations.
409 models were uploaded for this challenge by 96 designers. A lot of them were really amazing. I said it before, but believe me - it was a hard task for all of our team to decide who were the best this time. It is nice that the participants made very diverse items: there were some models of the surface and buildings, made for games. The majority of models, however, was vehicles and characters.
