The ability to 3D print almost anything in a matter of hours has opened the doors to what you can create in your home workshop. From completed items to parts that supplement your project, you can do almost anything with a 3D design and printer. For the 3D Printed Contest, show off what you are able to design and create. Don't forget to show and talk about your 3D design as there is a Judges' Prize for the best use of Fusion 360

Not everyone has a 3D printer or easy access to one, but that doesn't mean you can't participate. You can submit just your design (how you made it and how you would use it) or there are various services out there that can print your design for you.

If you are not sure where to get started check out these great classes on how to use Tinkercad and Fusion 360

The 3D Printed Contest is closed.
