Valentine's Day Design Contest
** Update 19/02/14 **
The voting period has now begun, check out all the entries here.
To enter, model and upload a 3D printable design under either of the following themes:
The grand prize for the most voted/downloaded object is an all expenses paid trip for two at a five star spa including a night's accommodation, transport and dinner, at the value of £1,000*. 3D Artists Magazine will also be selecting a special prize winner, who will be featured and interviewed for their magazine. Awesome!
We are accepting entries from the 13th of January till the 27th of January. After this, entries will be posted on the website for a 2 week voting period. The design with the most downloads will be our grand prize winner!
All successful entrants will receive a 3D print of their design.
Alongside accepting STL files, we will also be accepting parametric designs created in OpenSCAD and we will be offering a special prize for the best design submitted in this file format (under either theme).
*Location of spa break is decided by the winners location and their preference.
