Now in its 13th year, the contest provides students with an opportunity to redesign an existing product, create a new product that improves how tasks are accomplished, or design an original work of art or architecture – all via 3D printing. All submissions are evaluated across a range of criteria, including being mechanically sound, realistically achievable and highly creative.
