From quirky hats and raspberry pi cases to pop art inspired designs, we have already organized a lot of design challenges. Each one revolves around a unique theme. Your submissions motivate and inspire us to create more of them so you might find one that’s right up your alley. And now that 3D printing technology is touching many fields of our daily lives increasingly, why miss out the popular game of CRICKET?
We’re calling out to all innovators and 3D printing enthusiasts to stretch their capabilities and try their hands on this pioneering project:
Re-inventing cricket accessory design using 3D printing
Think outside of the box: user friendly helmets, better fitting gloves, the stumps, cricket balls...you get the picture!
The parts should be functional to be used in a real game of cricket.
The winner will be awarded a trip to Materialise Head Quarters in Belgium, and the design will be part of a real cricket game (net cricket) organised during the Materialise India Conference on the 13th and 14th of Feb 2014, in New Delhi, the capital of India. The event will be covered by local and international media.
On top of that, the winner’s design will be showcased by Materialise at different events and occasions or sent to the designer if he or she so prefers.
Note that the jury evaluates the designs based on the 3D renders submitted. Make sure the render is as clear as possible.
