There is no faster way to iterate and improve your design than with a desktop 3D printer to prototype your ideas before printing in multiple materials to make a final product. Shapeways and Formlabs are partnering to help bring ideas to reality with the 'Prototype to Product' 3D Printing Contest.
To enter the contest, submit a 3D model that you would prototype in high resolution on Form 1 desktop printer and then print in one of 40 materials as a final product with Shapeways.
Contest ends June 30, 2014.
Creativity: Novelty and originality
Culture: Importance of the design
Complexity: Significance and technical sophistication

Formlabs is reinventing 3D printing with the Form 1, the first affordable, high-resolution desktop 3D printer. Using stereolithography, a laser-based process in which a liquid photopolymer is selectively cured, the Form 1 can print highly-detailed parts with a smooth surface finish.
