CGTrader.com continues to challenge 3D artists in order to help them improve their skills, show off their work, and win valuable prizes. In Staples 3D Printing Challenge the artists are invited to rethink the whole concept of the print-ready 3D models and design models which could be printed out of paper and sold at Staples 3D printing service MyEasy3D.
“CGTrader community is comprised of more than 16,000 talented 3D designers, so the idea of challenging them to create the next 3D printing hit came naturally to us. We are very excited to offer this opportunity to our designer community” – says Marius Kalytis, CEO of CGTrader.com.
In this challenge, designers have an opportunity to demonstrate their skills to a much wider audience than ordinarily. The best 3D printable models will be available not only to the community of 3D artists, but also to the huge clientele of Staples. The author of the best 3D printable model will be awarded with 1,000 EUR prize and a 12 months Designer subscription valued at 900 EUR to MyEasy3D store. The 1st runner-up will get 6 months subscription valued at 450 EUR, while the 2nd runner-up will get 3 months subscription valued at 225 EUR.
Staples launched the online 3D printing service MyEasy3D in September 2013. The service gives Staples clients an opportunity to print a desirable 3D model using MCor paper-based 3D printing technology. MCor Iris 3D printer provides low cost, high-quality eco-friendly 3D printing using paper as the material and printing objects with more than 1 million colors.
CGTrader is a community-based 3D model marketplace, founded in 2011. The company’s democratic vision of liberating the market has attracted investors and in early 2013 CGTrader raised 185,000 EUR from venture capital fund Practica Capital. The company currently has more than 36,000 3D models uploaded to the digital library and more than 16,000 registered users, uniting 3D designers from all around the world.
