laser cutter! The form of awesomeness is entirely up to you: your project can be on any subject, using any components, and in any field. Just use your skills to make something incredible, share it on Instructables, and you can win one of the most truly incredible and versatile tools available: aZing Laser from Epilog!
What is a green twist
? In honor of environmentally friendly design andInstructables' Green Year 2009
initiative, we want to see at least some clearly described green component in the design
, no matter how small. Simply detail some way your design is energy-efficient, reuses materials, or is helpful to the environment in some way. It doesn't have to be the primary theme for your project - we just want to encourage green thinking at all stages of a project, no matter how small. Whether you're picking LEDs over incandescent lights, making maximally efficient use of scarce resources, or dumpster-diving for materials, it's these little steps that add up to permanent change.
So, make something truly great and win theZing Laser from Epilog!
With a laser cutter it's easy to get precise shapes out of your materials, and prototype quickly and efficiently. A laser cutter can get you from design to perfectly cut and etched reality in just a few minutes. With a tool such as this you can make or alter cool objects with a minimum of waste - it's the green way to prototype and design.
Now get to it! We can't wait to see your brilliant ideas.
At the end of the contest entry period there will be a one week period for user voting. The 15 finalists will be composed of 10 entries with the top votes plus 5 selected by Instructables staff. International entries are OK!
