I’ve previously announced in this thread that we are going to start a 3D printing contest for blenderartists forum exclusively, well, here it is .
We’ve been in 3d printing business for over 20 years and specialize primarily in industrial projects. This is the first time we are doing something like this and thus we decided that our first contest will be somewhat related to what we’ve been doing before.
How would you like to print out something functional like a custom lamp? Doesn’t sound like fun? If you need inspiration check out our .MGX collection of custom lamps located on our BETA website and truly embrace the awesomeness of this opportunity.
Here are the rules for this contest:
- you’ll have to be registered with blenderartists.com forum
- you’ll have to design a custom lamp
- you’ll have to post 3 screenshots here via reply option (top, side and plain view of your model)
...and that’s it
The deadline for your design submissions for this contest is Wednesday, September 16th, 23:59 (GMT +1). So, hopefully, once we get couple of design in, we will setup a poll (with screenshots of your designs) where you guys will vote for the best lamp, and ultimately the 3 best lamps will be printed and delivered completely free of charge to the lucky winners.
I know that most of you never designed a functional lamp, so we’ve put together a detailed explanation about fittings for the lamps on our website under download section. The Blender files for fittings are also available there.
At the moment we’re in a very early BETA stage, and a whole lot of things are not yet functional (for example our price algorithm is set to half price) on our website, but we thought it would be kinda fun to set up couple of contests for everyone to enjoy. We are very interested in your feedback, please tell us what you think about the service, and the contest. Leave a comment about the website: what would you like to see, what’s not working.
To give you guys an idea on dimensions of the lamp shade please see the attached file. These are not strict, but we would prefer to keep them around that size. Anything smaller or bigger might not look as good
