CGTrader.com, an online hub for professional 3D designers and enthusiasts, has set its attention on engaging the 150k strong community in the 3D print design challenge, hoping to open a new opportunity window for talented 3D artists seeking additional income.
The release of the iPhone-compatible Apple smartwatch is a fantastic opportunity for creative 3D designers to use the vibrant pre-sale anticipation period to promote their 3D printable designs and earn money off their talent. All 3D professionals are invited to submit 3D printable accessory designs compatible with the new smartwatch, such as watch-stands, cases, buckles and straps, travel pouches, and so on. The best designs will be included in a special accessories collection, dedicated to the upcoming Apple’s product.
“3D printing is a tool. If you learn how to use it, a whole bouquet of opportunities opens for you. Following trends and trying to figure out the next big thing is every businessman’s headache, so we’re trying to shift our designers’ attention to the most-promising ideas and save them time and effort wherever possible,” said Marius Kalytis, founder and CEO of CGTrader.com.
The challenge runs until April 1st, 2015. Alongside significant cash prizes, the winners of best model and best portfolio categories will be awarded with 3D printing pens from 3Doodler.
A community-backed 3D model marketplace CGTrader.com was founded in 2011 with a mission to democratize the 3D modelling and 3D design market. With more than 150 000 registered users, the company unites 3D modelling professionals from all around the world. There are more than 95,000 3D models uploaded to the digital library. CGTrader is backed by Intel Capital and has also raised funding from Practica Capital, a seed and venture funds based in Vilnius, Lithuania, which is financed from the Operational Programme for Economic Growth 2007-2013 under the JEREMIE initiative in Lithuania, by the European Regional Development Fund.
