Thingiverse citizen Pattywac recently launched two design challenges – a Holiday Design Challenge and a MakerMe Design challenge. Each winner gets $40.00 from Pattywac and an additional $100.00 in MakerBot store credit from MakerBot Industries! Without further ado, here’s Pattwac’s announcement of the winners!
Nicholas C. Lewis' print of Kliment's Holiday Prusa Mendel Set!
There ended up being 21 holidays-tagged items to judge, many of them being closely evaluated to each other. Thingiverse citizen Kliment ended up winning with the Holiday-ized Prusa Mendel design, in part, due to the huge response from the community. This design was able to incorporate the holiday spirit and will continue to give for years to come by allowing others to print other Things and hopefully other 3-D printers.
Nutcracker by psync
There were only two entries to this contest but they were both pretty cool. Citizen psync was able to fit his Holidays Nutcracker into the MakerBot for some z-axis walnut smashing action while citizen Nickames was able to create an egg-bot style attachment for the Makerbot. Nickames ended up taking home the W with the egg-bot attachment due to the response from the community and the fact that it will allow a whole new range of designs to be posted on and printed from Thingiverse.
Congratulations Kliment and Nickames!
