In collaboration with SketchUp, we are excited to announce our latest 3D printing challenge! Haven’t got any jewelry for Valentine’s Day? Then simply create some yourself in SketchUp and submit your design!
SketchUp is one of the most popular 3D modeling & design programs for 3D printing. It’s great software for creating geometric 3D objects such as architectural models, scale models, interior design items, functional parts … and geometrical jewelry!
We now ask you to use your creativity and talent to design 3D printable rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets, charms, or cufflinks! We invite all SketchUp users to submit your designs for a chance to win great prizes! If you have only used SketchUp for creating scale models or architectural models so far, this is your chance to dive into something new and take your first steps into the world of jewelry design!
The winner of the design challenge will receive a 3D print of their design either in polyamide, brass, or silver. Additionally, the winner will receive a 100 EUR/110 USD voucher for our i.materialise 3D printing service and a license for SketchUp Pro worth 640 EUR/695 USD!
The second and third places will be awarded 75 EUR/82 USD and 50 EUR/55 USD vouchers.
Furthermore, all participants will receive a 10% discount for 3D printing their designs with i.materialise.
To take part in the challenge, please make sure to submit your SketchUp design via this challenge page before April 10th. This challenge is open to all designers, professionals to amateurs. There is no limit on the number of entries per contestant, so feel free to upload several designs. Since the winner will be selected on the basis of the 3D renders you put online, we recommend that you send us very clear, visible renders.
Please mention for which 3D printing material your design is intended in the description of your submission.
*A bounding box is an imaginary box around your model. It is the rectangular space that contains your entire 3D model. In 3D printing this term is often used to indicate how large a particular thing is or can be.
