So they turned to Soch3D to come up with a new reward design that would reflect the ideals of the competition and inspire the participants. All this in a span of 3 days. The idea was modeled in 3D using CAD software and then, with the help of 3D printing this idea was realized and creative rewards were designed for the participants.
Take a look below at the final outcome: 3D CAD Model 3D Printed outcome
