13th Annual Extreme Redesign Challenge

The Challenge

Preparations are being made for the next annual Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge. The 2017 contest will officially open for submissions in October 2016.

Why not get a head start? We’ll ask you to send us your best design in the form of an STL file, and tell us why your design improves on the existing engineering solution or why it’s a great original or redesigned work. Winning entries will be creative, mechanically sound and realistically achievable.

As a bonus, if you’re a member school with the National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers (NCATC), you have the chance to be selected as the Coalition’s top entry in the post-secondary category. Since the contest’s inception 13 years ago, Stratasys has awarded more than $140,000 in scholarships to innovative students and their instructors.
