Thingiverse | ‘On Such a Full Sea’ Fish Challenge


We’re kicking off the ‘On Such a Full Sea’ Fish Challenge on Thingiverse to celebrate the limited edition of Chang-rae Lee’s new book. Its sleek, white slipcase was printed on a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. Inspired by the character Fan’s career as a fish tank diver, the MakerBot Studio designed the beautiful orange koi pictured above.

Design your own fish for a chance to win. Click “Enter Challenge” on the Challenge Page and upload your design between today, January 16 and February 7. Fish designs must be tagged #OnSuchAFullSea to be considered.

Award-winning author Chang-rae Lee will join our panel of judges to subjectively select the winner based on printability, beauty, and creativity. A Grand Prize winner will receive a signed collection of Chang-rae Lee’s books, three spools of MakerBot Filament, and have his or her creation featured on Thingiverse and displayed in the MakerBot Retail Stores. Two runners up will get a signed copy of the regular edition of On Such a Full Sea and have his or her creation featured on Thingiverse and displayed in the MakerBot Retail Stores.

    Well this was a big surprise at the CES…
    I originally purchased a Makerbot because the filament was more universal, and for the fact it was a bit more ‘open’ in case the company would go belly up…

    I made the big mistake or purchasing a 2X …
    now that makerbot is ditching ABS , people with 2X optimized for ABS and total crap on PLA will be left with obsolete machines in a snap.

    Even after talking to the good people of Makerbot at the CES I still don’t believe Makerbot will do it’s best to keep the material available… Even if they do, at what price.

    They also confirmed they have no intention on making the 2X any better or to provide customers with a replacement extrudes that is optimized to PLA to get the same quality as the 2 or the newer models …

    The good side is there were a lot of new printers at the CES making as good or even better quality for the same price or lower…

    Seeing how Makerbot lets go of it’s model so easily, it is clear there is little value in a specific brand for consumers… It made me look at other lower priced product and I suddenly realized
    “3D printers are already becoming consumables like ink jets… pay as low as possible for the quality and trow it away in a year”

    Sad but a reality
