We are happy to announce that Mold3D will be co-sponsoring Shapeway's '3D Animation to 3D Print' Contest!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Shapeways, it is the world's largest online 3D Printing Service and Marketplace. So if you don't own a 3D Printer, they have you covered. Did I mention how insane their material selection is? Do you want a gold metal version of your design? Done. How about a ceramic version? Shapeways has your back.
Calling all 3D Artists!
If you are a 3D Artist who creates movies, video games or animation, we encourage you to participate in the contest.
The winner will get the opportunity to 3D Print their model via Shapeways, and will also bask in the glory of being a Featured Artist on Mold3D!!
Ok, maybe glorious is pushing it a bit but you have to admit, you'll be featured along with some very talented company. Have you checked out our amazing Featured Artists lately?
Judging will be based on the following criteria:
Creativity: Do you push the boundaries of 3D modeling and printing (i.e. an entry of a solid cube does not push boundaries of either much)?
Technique: Is your figurine detailed and does it show off your 3D modeling skills?
Printability: Does your model meet Shapeways guidelines for the material of your choice and is it 3D printable? (We recommend Strong Flexible Plastic or Full Color Sandstone)
We also wanted to mention the available resources online to learn more about how to design your model so that it is 'print ready'.
Our friends at Shapeways also have some very informative tutorials you can find here.
To Enter the Contest, head over to the the Shapeways contest page. Good luck and we look forward to seeing your amazing designs!
