The MakerEd Challenge asked Thingiverse users to consider future designers and create projects that educators could bring to their classrooms. After more than 785 submissions, The Fillet Gauge design was selected as the winner of Makerbot Thingiverse MakerEd Challenge. Fillet gauges are used to measure curves on objects, like the edge of a phone case for example. In the original post the designer writes that the Fillet Gauge project is perfect for students who are beginning to use more advanced modeling software. This design can help teachers explain to students why fillets gauges are useful and will help students learn more advanced designs. “The sheer number of entrants for this contest shows that educators are more involved in 3D printing than ever and that people across the world are happy to inspire the next generation of designers,” said Nadav Goshen, President at MakerBot. “Now there are more than 750 projects that teachers can bring to their classrooms ranging from small tools to complex gears that will help students better understand abstract concepts.” The first-place winner of this challenge was randomly selected from all qualifying entries and will receive a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer. MakerBot will also feature the project on Thingiverse’s front page. Ten Runners-up were also randomly selected and will receive one free large spool of MakerBot PLA Filament.
