3D Printing Kids Challenge: Learn, Dream, Create

If your brain is bubbling with ideas, you have a flair for technology and have the guts to go head to head with other young geniuses like yourself, take this challenge and see your inventions come to life.

Do you see ways how to improve the school life, home and leisure time using 3D models for printing? Have you developed an inspiring toy concept or come up with a brilliant invention for everyday problems? Then go ahead and design it. The easiest way to develop a truly inventive idea for your project is to find something that causes trouble, a daily problem that gets people frustrated, something that requires a creative approach – then put your mind to it and offer a 3D printing-inspired solution.

We will welcome a wide range of good quality 3D printable models from juniors aged 14 & under.

Let your imagination roam free – learn, dream, create!

    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 lose the copyright.


    How can I participate in the challenge?

    Design awesome 3D model 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 22th of August to the 20th of October 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.
