It was back when I was in middle school. My cousin was working in Blender when I was at his house one day. It was so amazing to me at the time, I immediately got it installed on my parents' computer and started learning it. My cousin even made tutorials for me to start off with. What a guy. Ever since then, I have grown more and more passionate about 3D Design in general.

Category Brief

Entrants will typically come from a Product Design or Industrial Design background. They will likely have experience with AutoCAD style programs which offer a more precise building platform with a strong focus on real-world physics and restraints.

Important Notes

  • Combine all your best work into one single entry. Multiple entries with individual projects will not be reviewed.
  • The most important step is to share your process. Just are not purely interested in final renders. They want to see the thought process and how you solved your design problem.
  • All 3D content must be targeted towards product design and use CAD software. This is not a category for people with nice Zbrush models of cars.
  • Judges are interested in seeing great product visualisations. So make sure to share really polished final renders and compliment these with sketches and concept art.
