If a finalist has already ordered a copy of their design from Shapeways, would you consider rolling the cost of the design print into a coupon amount instead of sending them a print of their design? This would encourage entrants to print their design before the competition to test it and provide real pictures.

Good question - I see us having no problems in doing so if that was indeed the case.
So if you win and have ordered before to test, you get a coupon instead.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Hey all,

I have just made a minor change to the terms so the cost of 3D Print is *up to $100*, not:
between $50-$100 to print excluding mark-up and VAT,

I hope this opens it up to more entries...

Hey hey,

I'm noticing that the search term "100%" is not working. I put this on a few items yesterday and they didn't show up when I searched for it. In fact nothing did. I thought, maybe there is just a lag, so I typed in the search term 100% again today... nothing came up.

Then, I tried just 100, without the percent sign and I got quite a number of designs including the designs I keyworded with 100%. Some of them were meant for the contest and others just came up as a result of having 100 in them somewhere.

So maybe another search term would be better? It seems that the character % is not being recognised.

Perhaps we should make it "100percent"

Sounds great. I'll change mine.

Hey again :-)

re: "up to $100 instead of $50-100"

Awww .... I found that a really nice challenge. I usually try to design for under $30. It was really freeing to be forced to make an item with larger volume. Oh well, I was able to add some of the items I already had in my catalogue as a result :-) But I do find that an artist is more challenged towards excellence when faced with restrictions.

Ok Whystler, yours have to be between $50 and $100 ;-)

Hi Philippe

Any material you like.

Of course it can be a scale model, does not have to be the finished product...

#6.1 Duann on 2010-08-26 18:00 (Reply)
Just to be sure: Can items which are public but "not for sale" because they don't have been tested by the designer participate to the contest ?

100% Design exposition it's an amazing event that connects the worlds of architecture and design with innovative, contemporary interior products.
Don't miss this big event, where Boca do Lobo will be present, a brand, that I'm a fan. It's a brand that fuses old world handcrafting with modern age aesthetics to produce artistic pieces of furniture. Wherever you put Boca Do Lobo's pieces, they should elevate the room’s decor.

They do some pretty wild furniture,

We will have to look them up while we are there,

Thanks for the tip
