Thank you, everyone! And, congratulations to Mitchell and Vladimir! :-D
I can't wait to hear about the reception Shapeways receives at this year's Maker's Faire. It's going to be great.

Now... I'd better get to work. I owe you guys some instructions on how to put this thing together. :-P

So this wasn't a contest based on skill, but more on popularity? That's unfortunate.

Walter, all our contests are based on skill, the design and the brief. Judging contests sucks really because you do know a lot of people personally but you have to remain impartial and choose the best model. But, we do take our duty very seriously.

Hi Joris!

just a small question, when will the winners receive their model?

It will take a few more days yet we had to re-print your and the other models since your bike and Bulatov's model broke in transit and the Gear Heart got dirty because kids were playing with stamps and the gear heart(a rather bad idea in retrospect).

Ah ok, i'm sorry, i'll be waiting some longer :-D
