3D Printing Competition Answered

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all well?

cartridgesave.co.uk recently held their first ever 3D Print Cup - A challenge issued to 3D artists to design an original 3D character, which they'd then print off (for free!) using a 3D Printer.

The designers were all allowed to finish off their creations, and awards were given out at the wrap party, with the best overall design winning a Makerbot 2x Replicator.

We had some amazing entries, from all over the UK and even the USA, South America and Europe. A gallery of the all the entrants has been uploaded at www.cartridgesave.co.uk/3dprintcup

Hopefully there will be another 3D Print Cup next year, so keep your eyes peeled on the site.

You can post those pictures here as well.

Have you thought about linking up with this site and running a competition with a much wider audience? You wouldn't be able to print out every entry (you could have hundreds), but you could offer print-outs to the finalists (there are usually 20-25 finalists in most contests).
