This weekend contest is all about MakerFaire, which is coming up in New York in a few short weeks.
At SIGGRAPH, our Community Wall was the star attraction in our booth, and it gave me such joy to showcase the work of our talented community. For MakerFaire, we want to go even bigger and better. Along with the Hall of Fame Search Contest, this weeks Weekend Contest focuses on showing off the potential of our materials.
It was not easy to pick a winner with over 160 entrants in what was one of our quickest contests we have ever hosted on Shapeways. We are continuing to work on bringing you more high quality 3D printing material options to Shapeways with our new Mystery Metal the next in line with many more to come. We are focusing not only on bringing new materials to Shapeways, but also working hard to improve the quality and consistency of our existing options. You should see your prints evolve over the coming months.
To celebrate the introduction to Premium Sterling Silver, Gold Plated Brass and a new mystery metal we are about to launch we want to see what YOU are designing for our jewelry grade materials. For a little inspiration we are going to have a quick contest to see your designs for 3D printed pendants. The winner will get their pendant 3D printed in the material of their choice.
Have you ever wondered how we choose the products that are selected for showcase in our new materials launch? Have you ever wondered how you can be featured? Enter our weekend contest and your model could find it’s way to the home page in a material no one has ever seen before!
