On the first day of 3D Printer World Expo, Pixologic is sponsoring a ZBrush sculpt-off that will feature an extremely talented group of digital artists working in the entertainment industry. Two at a time, the artists will be tasked with building out a bust in 90 minutes from workstations on the exhibit floor's center stage. Big-screen televisions will be hoisted above them so attendees can see them work "live" from anywhere on the show floor. That evening, their sculptures will be printed by 3D Rapid Prototyping Inc. and displayed on the exhibit floor the second day of the show so attendees can vote on their favorites to determine the first- and second-place winners.

The first-place contestant will win a Formlabs Form 1 3D printer. The second place contestant will win a Wacom Cintiq 22HD Graphic Tablet.

Jared Krichevsky
The Aaron Sims Company

Rafael Grassetti

Dominic Qwek
