PD&D will only use your .STL file for 3D printing and competition features, editorial, and promotion. Rest assured that all designs submitted remain the sole property of the designer.

Product Design & Development is challenging your most creative design and engineering abilities…
And giving away an Afinia H480 3D Printer.

What Would You Print?

We want you to design or redesign an existing product or technology – a usable widget, utensil, tool, enclosure, or anything else you can think up – that would make life easier and more beneficial for the user. Basically, no toys. (we already have plenty of those floating around the office.)

With the help of our celebrity judges, Ben Heck from the element14 Ben Heck Show and Jeremy Wolf, Project Engineer with RedEye, we’ll be choosing three designs over the next three months. If you’re one of the finalists chosen this summer, we’ll 3D print your design on our Stratasys Uprint and showcase your concept in video and editorial pieces on

After three finalists have been chosen, a grand prize winner will be chosen by our judging panel, on a segment of Engineering Live, to receive an Afinia H480 3D Printer and two runners-up will receive a Premier Farnell RIoTBoard from element14 [limited to US and EU residents only].
