3D design for a floating coral reef

  • Prize: $215
  • Entries Received: 35
  • Winner: Archemind

Contest Brief

We need a design for a coral reef that we will be 3D printing onto an underwater floating platform in the ocean.

1. Dimensions: The design will need to be printed around a cylinder 1.6m wide and it can extend as wide as 6m at the base of the design which can be as high as 5m. Attached is an image of the approximate areas that you can use to make the design.
2. Traditional Natural Coral Styles: The design itself can be a mix of various styles of coral found in nature.
3. Coral Inspired Designs: The designs can also include a mix of design that are inspired by coral artwork but are not natural.
4. Blend in with Nature: The design should be beautiful & stunning but also look like something that you might expect to see in the ocean.
5. Fish hotel: The design can include many or even endless small & big holes and gaps in various places of the design which can become a habitat for small fish to live in. Almost like a hotel for fish.
6. Colors: Colors are not necessary. They could just be coral white or they can be multi colored. Up to you.
7. Fibonacci & Sacred Geometry: If the winning design incorporates fibonacci sequences as found in nature and other sacred geometry either in obvious or in subtle ways I will pay a bonus of $100 or more on top of the contest prize amount.

I would need to have a 3ds max or equivalent file which can be 3D printed from the winning entry.

      Your coral design will be printed and sit in an area like this underwater so it should look good when mounted in this area: https://www.dropbox.com/s/x8651hqex5cwwob/Screenshot%202019-06-23%2000.29.08.jpg?dl=0
