This challenge is a good time to practice your design and 3D printing skills ! We have a few tips for you that will make your life much easier for making your design a good fit for 3D printing… and have a better chance to win !

  • The model must have volume or wall thickness if interior spaces are shown. Minimum wall thickness of 1mm.
  • The model should be stable. You may need to consider a stand or base for certain models.
  • Keep in mind object scale. You will be printing in a maximum of 15cm x 15cm x15cm volume. Scale appropriately!
