Hey Community Friends,
Just a quick heads-up that we’ve teamed up with SketchUp and Flashforge 3D printers to launch the Make It Functional Design Competition for showcasing your functional 3D printed designs.
So what’s a functional 3D printed design? To put it simply, we are looking for 3D printed designs that somehow make our everyday lives easier or more interesting as actual products. Some great examples that we’ve seen in the past include desk organization systems, self-watering planters and even headphones.
Through October 25th, anybody can upload their designs for the chance to win one of many prizes including a Flashforge 3D printer, a SketchUp Pro license and even 3D Hubs credit for having their design 3D printed. Additionally, we’ll also be offering a $10 3D Hubs print voucher to everybody who participates.
Ultimately, the competition is an opportunity for us to recognize your design talent and hopefully inspire you to create some entirely new kinds of designs.
1st Place**:** A Flashforge Dreamer 3D Printer and a SketchUp Pro License
2nd Place**:** A Flashforge Finder 3D Printer
3rd-10th Place**:** A 3D print of your final design from 3D Hubs
How to Enter:
- Upload your file directly to the SketchUp 3D Warehouse before October 25, 2015.
- Once uploaded, the “I want this to be 3D printable” button should be checked.
- Tag the model with #sketchup3dhubs.
Entries will be judged on innovation, usefulness and printability with regard to their use as everyday objects. Only contest entries that are submitted by the October 25, 2015 deadline will be eligible for the prizes and the $10 3D Hubs print voucher.
