Artur lead the way in showing us all how anyone can co-design for 3D printing.
As a designer you can use that idea to work together with someone in
order to create something unique with them. We know that there is much
more creativity to explore in this area, that's why we're doing the
Draw it contest. Who can come up with the most interactive, fun and
expressive co-creator that has a hand drawn drawing as its input? Who can design the best combination of drawing and 3D printing?

We had a lot of response to our “Co-Creator Creativity in Co-Design Contest” (seriously – who came up with THAT name? . To recap, the aim of the contest was to create surprising, beautiful designs that are a good showcase of our Co-Creator platform.
With a Co-Creator, a real designer somewhere on the internet will adapt his or her design just for you. They will tell you the kinds of changes that can be made, you give them your input and off they go!
Some participants ran into a problem with our tagging service, so we took a good hard look at the recently submitted creator models to make sure we didn't miss anything (and yeah, we fixed that pesky bug).
