We had a lot of response to our “Co-Creator Creativity in Co-Design Contest” (seriously – who came up with THAT name? . To recap, the aim of the contest was to create surprising, beautiful designs that are a good showcase of our Co-Creator platform.
With a Co-Creator, a real designer somewhere on the internet will adapt his or her design just for you. They will tell you the kinds of changes that can be made, you give them your input and off they go!
Some participants ran into a problem with our tagging service, so we took a good hard look at the recently submitted creator models to make sure we didn't miss anything (and yeah, we fixed that pesky bug).
The runners-up will all receive their entry free of charge: (listed in no particular order)
aeron203 - Time Keeper
There's a lot of symbolism in this clock - it's frozen in time at a moment that's special to you.
Submit a picture and it will be carved into this elegant wine stopper. You'll need to add a rubber ring to make this work - we can't print those (yet?). I love combinations of Shapeways objects with other objects.
... and the winner of the $100 printing coupon is:
BeltClub – HandBelt
Don't let the name fool you – you can draw your own design (by Hand?) and BeltClub will turn it into a real, stainless steel buckle. A very fresh and 'out of the box' concept that offers a huge amount of artistic freedom. Congratulations - great job!
And just a correction on the Puzzle Heart "The Puzzle Heart consists of two pieces, printed in...." It is actually 4 pieces. The body is 2 halves and the lid is 2 halves. So that it is a capsule that rotates into a heart shape.
