12th Annual Extreme Redesign Challenge

The Challenge

Students worldwide: This season’s Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge will open on September 2 for entries. Read the contest rules to get started. Since the contest’s inception 12 years ago, Stratasys has awarded more than $130,000 in scholarships to innovative students and their instructors.

Our vision for this year’s challenge is “make a difference.” Strive to make a positive impact by redesigning a product for greater accessibility, eco-friendliness or human empowerment. Share your design and explain how it can make a difference for individuals, communities or the environment.

As an added 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.

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.
