Maker Faire is an incredibly fun and creative event for people who ‘hack’ technology and hardware. Last year there were 500 makers there and 65,000 visitors. The makers exhibit anything from robots to musical instruments to knitwear. You can check out a video from last year below to get an impression.
Shapeways is going to go the Bay Area Maker Faire on the 30-31st of May. If you’re there come meet us!
To inspire people we would like to show off the best models that you can possibly make. Something that will make people go wow! Something that explains how 3D printing will change things. Something that someone will look at, hold in their hand and go..you can make this?
The Maker Faire contest is your chance to have your most amazing design made. Anything you want, anything that you think will inspire and amaze is game. The top 3 models will be 3D printed, exhibited at Maker Faire and then sent to the lucky winners. The winning designer gets an additional $300 in 3D printing from us.
The fine print: The contest closes the 15th of May. Enter by adding the tag: makerfaire to your upload. Your model has to be less expensive than $200.
