With 240 entries for our Metal Inspiration contest our jurors Martin Baumers, Bathsheba Grossman and Rob Mack had a tough time of it. But, they did manage to choose our winners for the 3 categories.
In first place is Bottle Opener Compact by aeron23. The jury mentioned that, “very appropriate material/technology choice. The text is customized,
metal is the correct material and the design is appealing. A special
and useful object!”
Eeppium (Erno Mattila) took first place with his skull ring.
In first place was Whystler (Shawn T. Johnson) with Metal Wand. “A good idea, well executed, and ready for market. It looks tactile and satisfying, with a material and weight that work well, and it comes in at a good price point. This is a solid hit squarely in the design space of the medium.”
Congrats to all the winners! 3rd placed winners get $50 in 3D printing, 2nd place $100 and first placed get $100. Thank you so much also for our jury!
