Ultimaker and GrabCAD Launch “Design 3D Printable Toy” Challenge

GrabCAD, the platform for open engineering and home of the world’s largest community of mechanical engineers, is collaborating with Ultimaker in launching a design challenge soliciting designs that can be 3D printed on Ultimaker 3D printers.

With this Challenge GrabCAD and Ultimaker are asking: “What kind of kids’ toys can you create with the Ultimaker 3D printer?” The goal is to get people to be creative and toy around with their design thoughts and submit to GrabCAD.

Entries will be judged based on creativity, feasibility in 3D printing on Ultimaker, and overall coolness. Top 5 places will be each awarded an Ultimaker 3D printer. Judges for the contest include Dan Costa, Editor-in-Chief, PC Magazine; James Woodcock, Group Editor & Conference Curator, TCT Magazine and TCT Show; Eetu Kuneinen, Co-Founder, 3DPrintingIndustry.com with Ground3D and Protospace and Ultimaker teams. The Challenge lasts until June 3, 2013.

Requirements

  • Model parts should fit, be scaled to or be cut into sections of no greater than 21 x 21 x 21 cm.
  • Your submission should be exported in STL and STEP format and preferably include the native file-formats of the CAD-software they were made in.
  • Assembly can be via snap fit, bolts, screws or glue. See www.ultimaker.com for more information.
  • The model has to be 3D printable.
  • Entries will be judged based on creativity, feasibility in 3D printing on Ultimaker, and overall coolness.
