3D Systems Art Challenge: Silence 3D Printing Skeptics and Win a 3DS CubePro 3D Printer Worth $2500

Are you an inspired 3D designer or 3D printing enthusiast looking to take your work to the competitive level?  If so, then 3D Systems Art Challenge may well be the contest for you. Enter for a chance to win a 3D Systems CubePro 3D printer worth $2,799.  Or just to show the world that 3D printing is having an impact on the art world.

3D printing technology is growing at an amazing pace.  But the vast majority of people are either not aware of it at all, or are complete skeptics about its viability and applications.

3DSysTech is happy to announce that CG Trader has teamed up with 3D Systems for the 3D Systems Art Challenge because they want to prove the skeptics wrong, and they want to share the role of 3D printing in the art world, which they see as ‘a real magician’s hat – where you can produce an object out of nothing.’ As is very true in the concept of art—and life itself—even the most ordinary can become extraordinary.

CG Trader describes this challenge as ‘mouth­wateringly juicy’ with prizes.  And they aren't kidding. The 3D Systems Art Challenge will run until the 11th of January, 2015.

This is a terrific way of  motivating the digital content creators who may just need the nudge of competitive spirit to put some powerful new work out there.

Why enter a competition? It’s a great way to get the creative juices flowing, as well as gaining some recognition not only for your own work, but also for highlighting the capabilities of 3D printing technology.  A little competition is great for the art community in general, just as in the science and technology arenas where one idea can grow from another, and one person can inspire another to come up with provocative new ideas.

Please share your thoughts with us and let us know if you are interested in participating.  And, if you do, please post the link to you uploaded piece(s) for us to view and vote on.
