Valentine’s Day is over since 20 days, and we hope you had a nice one this year. For the participants to the last Valentine’s Day 3D Printing Challenge at least, it was awesome since they had a chance to imagine something for 3D printing.
After all the contests we did with CGtrader, it’s needless to say that we know we can count on you when it comes to 3D printing. But this time, you did really great. In one month, During one month, you were 73 to submit 294 files. Lovely 3D printable hearts, vases for flowers, beautiful rings, pendants and all those original items that can make Valentine’s Day more special – this is what was submitted for the challenge.
We present you the best 3D printable designs created for this challenge. Thank you for bringing that much 3D printed love. We hope you had a nice time participating. We’ll soon be sending our Sculpteo’s coupons to the winners and runner ups.
