2015 Singapore International 3D Printing Competitions: Vintage Toys

Before the rise of the computer and digital age, children of the world have been playing with traditional toys, from simple blocks of wood to tracks of train, jigsaw puzzles to mechanical robots. Most children have been said to play with whatever they can find, giving to the wide range of toys including dolls and miniatures, vehicles, puzzles, collectables and toys for construction, pretend play and physical activities. And not forgetting the toys which were based on the interesting cultures from different parts of the world.

​In the current society where tech-savvy children bury their heads in iPads and games consoles, a new challenge comes on how we can use 3D Printing to reinvent our traditional and vintage toys to draw children (even adults) back to appreciating and playing these functional toys which have been around for years. In this competition, we seek designs adapted from vintage toys, with new creative and engineering elements injected but at the same time retaining the unique cultural and historical significance of the toys.

2015 Singapore International 3D Printing Competitions: Functional Logo for Singapore Centre for 3D Printing (SC3DP)

3D Printing is a disruptive technology which brings about potential prospects on the new way of manufacturing. With increasing worldwide interest and attention in 3D printing, it is crucial for Singapore to capitalise on its current strengths and intensify efforts in this area to enhance its competitive edge in the manufacturing industry. 

Singapore Centre for 3D Printing (SC3DP) is a newly setup $113 million research centre which aspires to be the world’s leading research institute in 3D Printing to achieve prominent and outstanding breakthroughs in the research and development of innovative 3D printing technologies, processes and materials. With the tagline of “Printing the World and beyond”, the Centre will harness, strengthen and expand 3D printing capabilities in Singapore in four key areas, namely: (1) Aerospace and Defence, (2) Building and Construction, (3) Marine and Offshore, and (4) Future of Manufacturing.

In this competition, we seek innovative and futuristic functional logo designs for the new centre, which showcase and bring out the marvels and immense potential of 3D Printing.
