It’s time for tree trimming, and we’re holding a Thingiverse challenge to celebrate. We’ve teamed up with the Peabody Award-winning public radio show Studio 360, hosted by cultural critic and author Kurt Andersen and produced by WNYC and PRI, to co-sponsor a Thingiverse Holiday Ornament Challenge. This time, there’s an extra-special prize: one grand prize winner will be brought to New York City to join MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis as a guest at “Science Fair: Studio 360 in 3D,” a special event hosted by Kurt Andersen at The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space at WNYC in SoHo! Design an ornament, upload it to Thingiverse, and tag it #MakerBotOrnaments between today, November 22 and Monday, December 2. In addition to the grand prize winner’s trip to NYC, a total of TEN winners will each receive one spool of a MakerBot PLA filament and a Thingiverse t-shirt and have their designs featured on Thingiverse and in each of our MakerBot stores. We now have stores in New York City, NY, Greenwich, CT, and Boston, MA. For more details on the challenge, the Official Rules, and how to enter, go here.
