CAD Design students win 2018 Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge
Three Mott Community College (MCC) students won the NCATC award at the 14th Annual Stratasys Ltd 2018 Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge, the company’s globally-recognized contest empowering students to explore and demonstrate 3D printing innovation. The challenge judges submissions from hundreds of student inventors, engineers, artists and entrepreneurs.
MCC students Kaylee Spears, of Davison, Myles Archambeau, of Lapeer, and Chase Brokaw, of Flushing, won the National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers (NCATC) Member School Category for their Multipurpose Cooking Utensil. NCTAC winners are awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
“This kind of project helps to exercise the analytical and creative sides of our brain," said Archambeau of the Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge. All three students are working toward, or recent graduates of, the CADD-based degree program at MCC. Their shared interest in design thinking and the iterative process of rapid prototyping helped the team to bring their idea for the multi-purpose cooking utensil to life, according to instructor Dennis Hughes.

Co-hosted by GrabCAD and the extensive GrabCAD Community, this year’s Extreme Redesign event challenged students to either redesign an existing product, create a new product that improves how tasks are accomplished, or design an original work of art or architecture – leveraging advanced 3D printing technology. Closely evaluated by a respected panel of noted industry authorities, submissions were analyzed on their ability to be mechanically sound, realistically achievable and significantly creative.
