Description

The 3D Printing Designathon is back for its 4th year! RSVP to secure your spot!

Last year's designathon was amazing, but we're going to be making it even better this year!

The Designathon is from Saturday, October 28 to Sunday, October 29. Free admission, free food, and awesome prizes! Among other prizes, each member of the winning team will win a 3D printer!

Here is the general schedule for the day:

Saturday October 28:
11am: Check-in opens (Wozniak Lounge, Soda Hall)
12pm: Open ceremony (Wozniak Lounge, Soda Hall)
12:30pm: Lunch/Group meetup and match ups (Wozniak Lounge, Soda Hall)

Teams of 3-5 will have 24 hours to design and 3D print a prototype to fit a prompt that will be announced at a later time.

Feel free to brainstorm designs and ideas from any information you can glean from the logo. There will be time to form teams during check-in, so feel free to come with or without one.


The Designathon is open to everyone! No prior experience with 3D modeling or 3D printing software is expected, and any CAD software is allowed. For those without prior 3D modeling experience, we strongly recommend Autodesk Fusion 360, which you can download for FREE from the Autodesk Education website.

Please bring a laptop and mouse to the workshops and Designathon!
