We recently took part in the “3D Printed Ornament Design Challenge” that was presented by Instructables. Instructables is a website specializing in user-created and uploaded do-it-yourself projects.
There were over 300 entry’s into this contest, and the people ranged from individuals new to 3D printing to seasoned professionals. All the designs and models were very creative, and each had their own unique look and flare that reflected the magic of the holiday season. The winners will have their ornament printed, and displayed on the White House Christmas tree.
The entire process from design to finish took us less than a week, which goes to show how quickly 3D printing can produce parts.
Although we did not win, we applaud those who did, and thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the entries.
