What would Andy Warhol have done with 3D printing? That’s the question i.materialise is asking every designer. We challenge you to get inspired by Warhol and design a 3D printable piece which will blow everyone’s mind.

From June 10-12, 2013, Materialise will participate in RAPID 2013 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Produced by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), the RAPID Additive Manufacturing Solutions Conference and Exposition is the largest prototyping fair in the United States, hosting more than 1800 participants.

On the opening night of RAPID, Materialise, in conjunction with SME, will host an event at the Andy Warhol Museum unlike anything you’ve seen before. A special 3D printed installation, curated by renowned gallery owner Murray Moss, will be on display at the Warhol Museum, combining the work of Andy Warhol with 3D Printing. And you too could earn a spot at this event as a winner of the i.materialise Andy Warhol Challenge!

i.materialise invites you to design what you think Andy Warhol would have produced with 3D printing technology if he were alive today. We challenge you to be as original, inventive and creative as Andy Warhol himself!

On March 22nd, five semi-finalists will be selected from all eligible entries. The designs of these semi-finalists will be 3D printed by Materialise and placed on display at the Warhol Museum for the RAPID opening night event on June 10th. On that evening, the grand prize winner will be announced and awarded the 3D printed version of their design.

This challenge is open to all designers, professional and amateur, regardless of age, sex or nationality.

Submissions will be accepted up to 23:59 Central European Time, March 15th, 2013.

There’s no limit on the number of entries per contestant. Contestants can enter as many times as they like. To enter, contestants need to upload their design file(s) here and provide a clear explanation of their design concept(s) under ‘description’.
