It is absolutely crucial for us to maintain a strong link with our designer community and create opportunities for them to showcase their skills and increase their sales.

CGTrader.com believes that staying relevant to the latest trends is crucial, therefore has just introduced a new “3D Sports” challenge to engage all 3D artists that have an interest in sports. Professionals are encouraged to improvise and create everyday or futuristic 3D models encompassing the theme – be that football, skating or quidditch. Actually, designers are greatly encouraged to let their imagination roam free and try their luck at inventing new sports. Who knows, maybe 3D modelling can actually be used to predict future?

Known for its successful challenge campaigns, the company expects an active engagement of 65k of its registered 3D artists. Recent 3D challenge campaigns launched by CGTrader.com covered a wide range of areas, including architecture, homeware and science fiction and helped significantly expand company’s online 3D printable models collection. Winners of the “3D Sports” challenge will receive great prizes, ranging from 500 USD gift cards sponsored by Maxon to one year license of choice from Chaos Group, to annual subscriptions by Flare3D and many others. The challenge ends 6th of August, 2014.

“It is absolutely crucial for us to maintain a strong link with our designer community and create opportunities for them to showcase their skills and increase their sales. Judging by high levels of engagement in the past campaigns, we are pleased to see our designers taking advantage of it. We are also striving to broaden buyers’ understanding of the practical and fun use of 3D printing and this challenge is fit for that purpose,” – says Marius Kalytis, CEO of CGTrader.    

The company is also currently running a home 3D printing challenge, seeking to engage 3D designers in creating useful and unique homeware products that homeowners could not say no to.
