For this 3D Project Challenge brought to you by 3dcreationsystems.com we are asking you to design or modify a money clip in 3D. Don't worry you've never done any 3D design at all before. We have instructions for how to make your own clip as well as templates that you can modify.

The Instructable that covers the design of our clip is here. Follow along with the instructions or go your own way!

Once again, there are two different ways to enter:

1) Design your own money clip in any CAD program you want
2) Modify this file on 123D Design

Once your design you can enter it as a photo Instructable with a couple of renders of the results or make a full step-by-step Instructable. We can't wait to see what it looks like!

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), August 19. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, September 16.
