We're excited to announce Wired's first 3D Print-off! The competition invites you to show off your 3D design skills by sending in original, 3D printable designs. Wired will then post the submissions on Wired.com (how cool!?) and select the ten coolest to print through Shapeways!
This is the perfect chance to showcase your designs with the world. Side note: you will still own all rights to your design after submission. What types of things can you submit? Wired is welcoming ANYTHING you want to make, as long as it is printable and original. iPhone cases, mobius (bacon) strips, action figures, geometric fractal sculptures.. go crazy!

We're growing our NYC office, starting with expanding into the space next door. In true startup fashion, we're all actually here working while the wall is being taken down.... promise no Shapies were hurt in the process. Did I mention that we're hiring!?
