3D Model Marketplace CGTrader Announces 3D Printing Competition

CGTrader.com, the e-Bay like 3D model marketplace for 3D designers, is opening up a 3D Printing Competition and calls all 3D artists to start modeling for this rapidly growing technology.

“3D printers need 3D models just like an iPhone needs apps. This technology definitely requires professional-level 3D modeling skills, but there is a surprising gap between 3D printing industry and professional 3D designers.” says Marius Kalytis, CEO and founder of CGTrader.com.

This competition aims to attract these fresh talents and help the 3D designers acquire new modeling skills as well as experiment with designing for 3D printing. Anyone with 3D modeling skills is eligible to participate - the entrants just need to submit their models in .STL format by the end of June.

The entries will be judged based on level of professionalism, creativity, uniqueness, printability and general achievement in design of 3D printed model. Qualified jury from CGTrader will select the winner and two runners-up in the each of category: Best 3D Printable Model and Best 3D Printable Portfolio. Both winners will be awarded with 3D printers provided by Ultimaker. There are also a dozen of other valuable prizes from 3D Print UK, iMakr, Filaco, Sculpteo, and others. Competition deadline is the 30th of June.
