With Polymaker, enter the 3D design and printing competition around organic shapes, inspired by nature.

KeyVisual-Contest-Polymaker-EN


To participate in this original contest, all you have to do is design a 3D model of an organic shape that is appealing to the eye or an organic object that serves a purpose. Be inspired by living objects in nature and create something that is beautiful, useful or both! Stay clear of hard edged blocky designs and let your imagination flow.

Models can include, for example, objects related to every kind of elements in nature: wood, stone, crystals, plant materials. For example, you can recreate the appearance of a tree trunk or the effect of ripples that spread over the water. Our best advice: observe nature and create a beautiful and useful object from your observations.

Whether you are an artist, engineer or handyman, you can all participate in this free contest and demonstrate how 3D printer is a great innovation that is useful for improving everyday life!

How to participate?

  • Publish one or more 3D models in connection with the theme of the competition about the Organic Shapes. The model can be divided into several parts (but not too many, so that it can be easily printed in 3D). The object must be beautiful, useful or both.

  • Mention in the description of your design the hashtag: #POLYMAKERCHALLENGE

  • Submit your 3D model on Cults for free with the Creative Common CC-BY License.

  • Share your creation around you in order to get as much "Likes" as possible on your page (only the real "I like" will be counted).
