The winners of our Metal Inspiration contest are….

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 the Technology category the third placed person is…Stijn van der Linden, Virtox with Hypotrochoid Gears.

The second place goes to Smaller Buggy by Jiovanie Velazquez. “Nice little car, very likeable, impressive demonstration of the technological state” of 3D printing.

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!”

In the jewelery category Madox (John Chan) took third place with his Propeller Hat Cufflink

wuct88 (Chitian Wu) took second place with Fractal Geometry Ornament.

Eeppium (Erno Mattila) took first place with his skull ring.

In the Art category wuct88 (Chitian Wu) took third place with his Cup.”A classic subject, relatively untried in 3D Printing, and skillfully modeled.”

In second place was Inlite (Blair Collins) with Dragon. “This is what 3D printing should do.  It’s modeled very freely.  But it’s fun and funny and would be difficult to make any other way.”

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!
