Staples 3D Printing Challenge: It's Time To Do Some Paperwork!

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?

Please Note: This text is balanced for women, but may also catch the interest of men.

Imagine, you are invited to some kind of celebration: the wedding, baptizing, birthday party or there is a prom night right around the corner. So, you will spend an incredible amount of time (I mean it) to find the right outfit (I’m not sure, how long men spend choosing their best suit) and, perhaps, you will come up with the best choice. You think you are done with this, but not really.
