3D Design Competition

Submissions close 21st February 2017

Raise 3D Capcom

Design Brief

Good news everyone!

We've teamed up with Capcom to bring you an official Monster Hunter 3D Design Competition with an awesome Raise N2+ Dual worth $3,500 up for grabs!

In this competition we want you to choose a weapon from Monster Hunter - here's a selection - and re-imagine it for 3D printing. Choose any weapon you want and design it in your own style and then submit the finished STL file(s) and/or photos of your finished 3D print to MyMiniFactory. Monster Hunter Weapons are known for being absolutely massive so you are welcome to scale your design down if you see fit (but if you want to print one full size then go for it). We want you to use your creativity to give this your own touch. Want to create a weapon at a small scale to print in resin and use as a pendant? Do it. Want to make a weapon into a plant holder? Get on it!

Capcom and the Monster Hunter team will choose their favourite designs, with the winner taking away a MASSIVE Raise3D N2 Plus! Two runner ups will also win prizes, see the prizes section below to see what you could win.

Check out the full criteria below for tips on how to win this one.

Please read the full Terms and Conditions here before entering.

Top Tips

For this competition you need to design a weapon from Monster Hunter - that DOES NOT mean it has to be an exact replica from the game. We encourage you to use your artistic license so there is no need to print these at full scale - but if you want to then go for it.

Please note - you do not need to 3D print your entry yourself, submission of just the 3D printable model (in STL format) will suffice. We strongly recommend that you 3D print your own entry if you can, as this will allow you to showcase your piece as it was intended and improve your chances.

Designs that are submitted without photos of the final 3D print will be printed by the MyMiniFactory community - subject to printability and at a reduced scale if necessary.

If you are unclear on any part of the competition check out our FAQ section which may provide the answers.

  • Read and understand the design brief.
  • Thinkabout how you can best deliver a solution.
  • Use the tips and resources provided
  • Explain the concept behind your design.
  • Presentprint, and photograph your design with care.

Capcom will be looking for creativity and great design, so really go out of your way to show them what you are made of. Either print in a single colour and then paint your design, print it in different colours and assemble it, or choose not to colour it at all - it's up to you. You can even repurpose the weapons so that they become jewellery or functional items, show us what you've got!
