#MBME: Win $250 For Your MakerBot Replicator 2 Story

MBME banner

It’s been seven months since we started shipping the MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. In that time, we’ve heard countless stories of what people are doing with this powerful machine. From a toothbrush that helps kids brush properly to a simple accessory that speeds up credit card purchases, we’ve heard it all.

In light of that, we are sharing a series of stories here on our website called #MBME: MakerBot & Me. Some of the stories we hear are practical, some are sweet, some are totally genius. In every case, they’re inspiring. We’ve collected some examples so far, and you can see them here.

Now the fun part: we want you to supply the rest, for a chance to win a $250 Gift Certificate to our online store.


How to Win

We want great stories that help the world understand what’s so cool about owning a MakerBot. It should be a story of what you yourself have done, with some pictures to show off your work:

•   Photo of you, the thing you made, and your MakerBot Replicator 2. (optional, if you’re shy)
•   Photo of the thing you made and your MakerBot Replicator 2.
•   Photo of just the thing you made.
