Sketchfast Contest #1

Today we are happy to announce the first ‘Sketchfast’ contest! The aim is to create a 3D model in relation to recent news announcements within a short time period.

Lego have recently revealed their Mindstorms EV3 kits. These are new creations from Lego that introduce application programming to younger generations. There are up to 17 different variations the kit can create, so there is a lot of interesting designs including snakes and scorpions.

The challenge is this:

“Create one of LEGO’s new Mindstorms EV3 kits as a 3D Model.”

Time Limit: 72 Hours

Start Date: Friday, January 11th, Noon (Paris French time, GMT+1)

End Date: Monday, January 14th, Noon (Paris French time, GMT+1)

Prizes

1st Place – 150 cash + staff pick exposure

2nd Place – 1 year of Sketchfab PRO

The Sketchfab team will be selecting the winners. You can use search engines to find relevant reference material. There is no technical restriction, only the time constraint!

To enter the contest, upload your model with the tag ‘Sketchfast1’ through the edit window before January 14th, Noon, GMT+1. Winners will be announced the following day.
