Can you make the best moving part? Something with an axle or flexibility or even gears perhaps? Something akin to these cars?
Or something completely different?
The contest for the next month will be our moving parts contest. It will start today and run until the last day of March. To enter into the contest upload a model and add movingpart as a tag. Community votes will decide the winner. The winner will recieve $300 in 3d Printing from us. We have a blog post here that shows you some moving parts that have already been made with 3D printing. We also have a mini-tutorial here that shows you how to make some basic moving parts.
Is designing the item in SWF required, or just recommended? I have had difficulty with SWF when designing movable parts in the past, where moving pieces are .5mm apart. I would usually choose White Detail, but if the contest requires us to use SWF, then I will design accordingly.
This poor boy ... can you imagine how negative his life must be to make a post like this? He doesn't see how useful Shapeways is. He can't get beyond his past misplaced frustrations to realize that Shapeways opens a lot of doors for people. I haven't won a contest yet, but I still keep buying. Shapeways will be here in a year, because the truth of the matter is, people like me will still be buying.
