Moving parts contest


Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)

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.

It is not required we just thought it would be easier, you can use any material you would like.

Another scam contest?

Every contest has been a joke. The dates change. People that use the correct tag are not included. "Community votes" are not counted.

Shapeways: Spend more time making things fair than criticizing language software ads and talking about Pepsi's marketing and maybe you'll still be in business next year.

This website knows their time is limited to make money. There are more and more similar services and soon people will be doing this on their own desktops. Do your homework, don't fall for "SCAMWAYS."

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.

I won a contest here, and and few other too.
This site and company is not a scam.

To shapeways: Keep up the good work :-)
