The draw it contest was an especially difficult one to judge. After long debate we have decided that:
The fifth place winner is fx2’s Shark Stainless Steel letter opener.We thought this was a fun product to customize and use.
In fourth place we have YouKnowWho4Eva’s cute MiBuddy Iphone Stand.We thought that this was a great way to both customize and “anthropomorphize” the Iphone stand.
In third place we have Jeff’s Canvas Ipad Wrap. We thought this was a well presented and well thought out fun co-creator drawing product.
In second place we have WelshDesigns’ Draw your own Stick Family. This seemed to us to be a lot of fun and an original idea to make such a “literal” product with people’s drawing skill.
In first place we have Lensman’s Breast Plate.We loved the breast plate jewelry idea and thought this would be a great product to customize.
fun contest, thanks for running it shapeways! a great variety of entries and winners too.
so the top 5 get there models printed, so i get to sketch up my own design 1st right, cuz mine is a lil plan w/o something drawn on there. guess i should sketch it then upload?
Holy ****! As I was scrolling slowly down I was thinking, “yep, that’s good” with each model and then came to mine as the winner! Thanks a lot guys. I love this site (and not just because I won) and can say that it has opened up a whole new level of creativity for me. I paint traditionally as well as digitally, but haven’t had a lot of success financially in those endevours… Piddling around on the computer has been an interest of mine since the Sinclair ZX81 (look it up!) but now with the ability to physically create ideas that have been floating around in my head I spend even more time in front of the monitor – but actually doing something worthwhile for a change.
