MAKE Magazine and Makerbot are holding a contest for the best design for a 3D-printable object, and the prize is a Deluxe CupCake CNC 3D Printer Kit.
From the MAKE magazine blog:
1. Imagine something you’d like to see printed on a MakerBot CupCake CNC!
2. Design your object using any 3D design software you like.
3. Upload your design to Thingiverse!
4. Share the link to your Thingiverse post here, in the comments, by May 5th, 2010 at noon PDT.
They’ve already got some great entries. Why not try your hand, 3D designers?
P.S. If you don’t have the time, inclination or skills to create a design, simply post your idea in the comments of the contest blog post for a chance to win 1 of 5 “Poor Person’s 3D Fabbing” prize packs, each containing:
1 Arduino Duemilanove board (courtesy of MakerBot) [Read more about the Arduino here.]
