Top 10 Finalists Announced In Extreme Redesign Contest

Stratasys Inc. (NASDAQ: SSYS) today announced the finalists for its Dimension brand’s eighth annual Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge. The global contest encourages students to submit an innovative product design, a redesign of an existing product, or an original work of art or architecture.

Dimension 3D Printing will award each of 3 student winners $2,500 or $1,000 scholarships in the categories of middle school and high school engineering, college engineering, and art & architecture. A list of the top 10 finalists and their school names can be found at: Dimension 2012 Finalists.

Designs are awarded based on creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetics. Instructors of the three first-place student winners will receive an Apple iPad for use in the classroom. With this year’s awards, the contest will exceed the $100,000 mark in scholarships granted since the contest’s inception.

Each submission is required to:

  • be a sound mechanical design (Engineering category)
  • be realistic and achievable
  • include a clear written description of the design

This year’s contest also features a bonus award category: Students who incorporated a school-spirit theme into their designs will have a chance to win a $250 gift card.

From the 10 finalists in each category, a panel of independent judges from industry and the engineering media will select the winners this spring. This year's judges are David Mantey, Editor at Product Design & Development magazine, Ian Kovacevich, VP of Engineering at Enventys, LLC, Patrick Gannon, Engineering Manager at rp+m (a Thogus partner), and Todd Grimm, Editor at Engineering.com.
