Awesome iPhone 4 Cases Requested! Sculpteo Design Contest #1

Posted By Sculpteo on May 18, 2012 | 11 comments

Sculpteo is launching its first worldwide design contest! We are in a quest for finding the best iPhone 4 case that you could ever imagine with 3D printing. It is pretty ambitious, but also a lot of fun! Interested to participate in our iPhone 4 case challenge? Here is the deal:

Imagine an iPhone 4 case that takes the most of 3D printing technologies.

3D printing lets you imagine designs with details and precision, complex geometrical shapes, mechanical gears. We encourage you to use these possibilities and focus on customization features (engravings) and computer generated designs (personalized patterns) as well.

First Prize winner will receive: a 150 euros (190 dollars) purchase voucher for 3D printing designs with Sculpteo +  a 3D print of the design.

Second prize will get a 75 euros (95 dollars) purchase voucher + a 3D print of the design.

We created a third prize that will be chosen by the public. The most popular iPhone 4 case design on (best rating + most votes) will get a 75 euros (95 dollars) purchase voucher and a 3D print of the design. Everyone can vote here.

All winners will get an opportunity to open a designer store on and sell their own designs.
