Design for 3D Printing Challenge

What is the Challenge?

CAD MicroSolutions recently moved into a brand-new head office, and we have two meeting rooms that still need furnishing. Luckily for us, our BigRepSTUDIO 3D printer has a large enough print volume to print our own furniture on site, but we need your help with the design.

All you need to do to enter is:

1. Register to Enter the contest

2. Pick a room to design:

Room 1 (Link these to the images and/or 3D models of the rooms)

Room 2 (Link these to the images and/or 3D models of the rooms)

3. Design the room in your CAD program of choice, keeping in mind the design requirements. (link to Design Requirements page/pop-up)

4. Submit your final STL file to us, along with your business case before February 28, 2019!
