Quebec-based engineering services company's PUT US TO THE TEST contest offering $25,000 worth of 3D engineering work to winning project entry.

If you have a crazy cool 3D projects that’s just too big and/or difficult to pull off yourself, 3D scanner maker and engineering services company Creaform may just be able to make your vision a reality.

The Québec City-based company is currently looking for entries for its PUT US TO THE TEST! 2013 Challenge that encourages students and public/private businesses to submit an idea, presumably, the more challenging the better. The winner receives up to $25,000 worth of the company’s design services.

To qualify, the project should require one or more of Creaform’s services including 3D scanning, long-range scanning, dimensional inspection, reverse engineering, product design and FEA/CFD analysis.

Last year, the Australian Institute of Sports won the challenge and received Creaform’s help in designing a kayak “layout” that was custom-fitted to Olympic athlete Jessica Fox, who took the silver medal at the 2012 Summer Games in London.


All entries are due by February 15, 2013. Check out Creaform’s website for the necessary PUT US TO THE TEST! 2013 entry form.
