Škoda unveils official 3D printed models on Printables – competition for creative makers

Just over a year ago, Czech 3D printer manufacturer Prusa Research launched the “Printables Brands” initiative to collaborate with leading global brands and offer official 3D printed models of their products. Whether spare parts, accessories, 3D templates, merchandise or fan models.

Now Prusa welcomes the newest participant – the first car manufacturer on Printables, the Czech company Škoda Auto. Users can now download and print true-to-scale 3D print models of the best-selling Škoda Octavia and the Škoda Enyaq electric vehicle. In the past, we have already reported on the use of Prusa 3D printers at Škoda and the company’s cooperation with the Volkswagen Group. The release of the vehicle models is now the next step in this exciting collaboration.

To celebrate the launch, Škoda has prepared a competition for makers: Participants must creatively stage their 3D-printed model of the Škoda Octavia in 1:24 scale or the estate in the same scale. Whether on the street, by the lake or in front of a monument – there are no limits to the imagination. Participants can then upload their photos to the “Makes & Comments” section on Printables.com. The closing date for entries is February 28, 2024.

A jury will select the eight best images, share them on Instagam and let the public vote on the winners. Attractive prizes await the top three winners: First place will receive an exclusive Škoda Octavia experience in Mikulov including a flight ticket (only for EU winners), an original Prusa MK4 kit, a gift basket with products from the Škoda online store and Prusa filaments. Second and third place will also receive product baskets from the Škoda store and Prusa Filment.

Detailed competition rules can be found on the Prusa website.
