12th Annual Extreme Redesign Challenge

The Challenge

Students worldwide: This season’s Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge closed on February 4, 2016. Finalists will be announced in March, and winners in April.

The next annual Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge will open for entries in September, 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 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. Since the contest’s inception 12 years ago, Stratasys has awarded more than $130,000 in scholarships to innovative students and their instructors.
