We had over 70 entries to the 3D Printed Wedding contest and with so many fantastic designs it was really hard for us to chose winners among the entries. With the help of Kelly Phillips Badal, senior editor and in-house crafter at Country Living magazine, we were able to narrow it down and are very excited to announce the winners of our 3D Printed Wedding contest!
From cake toppers to table settings, we’ve gathered all of the entries for decor, party favors/gifts and bridal accessories and with help have selected the winners for each category. See Kelly's picks below!
Decor: The ball and chain wine glass charm. "This clever little charm made me laugh out loud -- and instantly covet it. And would I use it post-wedding as a sly statement? Absolutely."
Party favor: The 'Suit Up' iPhone case. "Truly classy groomsmen gifts are tough to find, but if Don Draper owned an iPhone, this sharp case would be his top choice."
Bridal accessory: The phoenix hair clip. "The complexity of the design is impressive, and there's a lacy quality to it that reads bridal. Plus, it's a keepsake: You'll want to pass this beauty on to your daughter."
We wanted to make sure each item was actually fit for a that special day, so naturally, we threw a wedding! Additional images from the shoot can be found here.
Designs by Naaaut, Nervous System, Dario Scapitta Design.
We had some really spectacular submissions and want to thank all who participated as well as highlight a few more of our favorites!
This week for our weekend contest we challenge you to 3D Scan to 3D Print using Autodesk 123D Catch.
Take up to 40 photographs around an object with your iPhone, iPad or your camera and 123D Catch will take the photos and stitch them together in the cloud using photogrammetry to create a 3D object. You may need to give the 3D file a little love to make it ready to 3D print then upload the file to Shapeways with the tag '123D Catch' and we will give our favorite entry a $25 Shapeways Gift Card.
The competition challenges makers, designers and space entrepreneurs to collaborate to create open source 3D printed rocket engine to serve the growing market for small payload delivery into low earth orbit. The concept is for teams to work together to design and 3D model a working rocket engine in the software of their choice, using Sunglass.io as a collaboration tool to edit and update the 3D model.
The first prize is $5000 cold hard cash and a student prize of $2500 along with 3D printing courtesy of Shapeways.
Check out the full competition details for judging criteria and rules (no sending puppies into orbit or nuclear power unless you have the correct permits)
I have a beautiful mediterranea lamp by cunicode on my desk and we have numerous other wonderful models in our gallery. This weekend I'd like to see how far your creativity can go, so I challenge you to design a lampshade with a surprise. Maybe it's something in the light pattern on the wall, maybe it contains a moving part powered by the heat of the lamp.. Surprise us and win a $25 voucher!
