announced today that it is hosting the winners of the reality show contest, ‘Reality Redesigned’ for student designers at RAPID 2012, booth 120, in Atlanta, GA. This exciting student-focused design competition has delivered daring new mountain bike designs created by inventive riders and brought to life with full color 3D printing.

‘Reality Redesigned’ was produced by Executive Producer and host Jeremy Bout of “The Edge Factor Show,” and PinkBike, one of the top mountain bike sites in the world. Spotlighting students and the design process from ideation to production, 3D Systems was involved in each step, printing full color prototypes of the finalist designs in three categories: suspension, components and frame. An expert panel chose the winning design which will be manufactured and tested by a pro rider.

“We are thrilled to leverage our full color 3D printing capabilities to inspire innovation and bring student contestants’ creativity and designs to life,” said Cathy Lewis, Vice President, Global Marketing for 3D Systems. “‘Reality Redesign’ is just one more example of 3D Systems’ commitment to education, something we are deeply passionate about as we work to democratize creativity for students at all grade levels and disciplines through access to affordable 3D printers and compelling 3D content.”
