Figulo Ceramic Challenge Results Are In!

It got Bigger and it got Better. The Figulo Ceramic Challenge really got the creative juices of the GrabCAD community going. We picked up a record 407 entries of vases, candle holders and table lamps! Andy Jeffery from Figulo and the entire GrabCAD team was really happy with the individual submissions, so we want to give a big thank you to every single engineer and designer who participated.

Case Study: Figulo Home Decor Design Challenge

Figulo ran a GrabCAD challenge to broaden its product line. The prizes were very sweet - $100 or $50 prizes plus a 50% share for 6 months. And man did we see a lot of submissions - 321 in total! But it wasn't all peachy as it seems, and at GrabCAD, we like to run these case studies to look back and see what we, the client and community did right and wrong and what we can do to improve.

Figulo's Ceramic Home Décor Design Challenge generated a lot of submissions - 330 by last count. Prizes included $100 cash plus 50% of total profits. Now we just received word that now you can go to Shapeways and buy any of the winning designs!

Lauri and I just returned from Figulo's workshop in South Boston. CEO Andrew Jeffery was really happy with the sheer number and quality of finished designs, excited by the fact that the GrabCAD community can be counted on to create such beauty. CADelicious!
