Today, it begins. The first annual Rapid Jewelry 3D Printing Design Contest kicks off with cash prizes, software and a nationwide fashion show to put your prize-winning entry in front of thousands. Design Museum Boston is hosting the competition with Luxion and Solidscape sponsoring the show that asks jewelry designers to take an age old craft and bring it into the 21st century.
We’ll formally launch the competition Monday night, February 16th, at the 3D Printing Wearables event where select 3D print companies will debut cutting-edge tech and designers will show what is possible.
