Every year the Students’ Union at the University of Huddersfield holds an award ceremony to reward the hard working societies and sports societies.

In 2018, our society had a suggestion from the Students’ Union staff Matthew Short, to try and consider 3D printing the award instead of them outsourcing it. The main idea started with the hope of using 3D printing, the material PLA (Biodegradable material) and most importantly have the award designed and 3D printed by students for students.


The design started from a 2D image as seen below, which was designed in Illustrator and sent by Matthew Short.
