3D Fashion Challenge

3D Fashion Challenge

There’s been a lot of discussion and a lot of speculation about the way the fashion industry will be disrupted by 3D printing technology in the near future. Some believe that 3D-printed fashion will take the streets first and then climb its way to the podiums and haute couture salons, while others argue that 3D printing models have already left a distinct mark on high-end fashion and the influence it has on upcoming trends will only increase. All we can do now is stay up to speed with whatever is going on in the industry and place our bets.

The 3D Fashion Challenge is a window to the future. We are giving you full control – decide for yourself what the hot trends will be, the must-haves, the new design masterpieces and old-but-transformed bestsellers. How will 3D printing change the way we choose and wear everything from clothes to shoes and essential accessories like bags, hats or belts? Will the customization option bring in more creativity or chaos? Will we see hundreds of different designs of the same item and pop-up street stalls with 3D-printed goodies or will we opt for one-of-a-kind designs?

Mix and match and show us the face of the future fashion.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Please go through these questions before contacting us

    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 model related to fashion and upload it 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 26nd of September to the 24th of November 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.
