We've teamed up with Formlabs to give away 3Form 1+ 3D Printers! Formlabs is reinventing 3D printing with the Form 1+, a high-resolution stereolithographic desktop 3D printer for makers, engineers, designers, and artists. The Form 1+ 3D Printer uses a precisely-guided laser to cure liquid resin, offering unprecedented resolution and print-quality. Powerful, intuitive, and affordable, the Form 1+ 3D printer is setting the standard in professional desktop 3D printing. Formlabs also develops its own suite of high-performance materials, as well as our intuitive, powerful 3D-printing software, Preform.

To enter: post an Instructable that shows off your amazing skills and creativity, and proves that you'll make good use of a Form1+ 3D printer. Document your project with lots of great photos, and provide clear instructions so others can learn from your work. And be sure to tell us what you'll do with the Form 1+ 3D printer if you win!

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), September 15, 2014. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, December 15, 2014
