Flat is Boring: The Magic of Ideas Becoming Things


When we launched the Flat is Boring campaign, our focus was on broadcasting the big and exciting message - with 3D printing, bringing any idea to life is a matter of creativity rather than anything else. So, initially we had no other intention but to offer the delightful experience of having your creative project idea transformed into a 3D printable model, printed and delivered to your doorstep by our partner Shapeways. The winners (Top 10 ideas) were selected based on the social support that the idea attracted through 'likes' and 'shares' as well as on the feedback from our judge panel. Wait until you see the kick ass designs that were modeled and 3D printed bringing the 10 best submissions to life!

3D Printed Kids' Toys Challenge: why Barbie might be in trouble?..


Paradoxically, tools and techniques to encourage kids' creativity require creativity. It's hardly possible to foresee which of the new toys or games will become kids' favorite, but as the technology develops, the capabilities and detail of 3D printed toys make them a desirable customized alternative to traditional toys. With that said, it only seems natural that we're rolling out an exciting new challenge to explore the endless 3D potential to create new play experience for children and (let's be honest) adults alike.

How 3D Printing Geeks Reinvent Thanksgiving


Posted on Nov 24, 2014 by Juste Semetaite

Although the first American Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621, the last Thursday in November was officially declared a day of thanksgiving by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, hoping the new national holiday would help unite the nation during the hard times of the Civil War. Today's Thanksgiving celebration is synonymous with feasting, football and family and continues to be a day for Americans to come together around a table. Hence, freshening up the tradition and setting a modern holiday table can help make for a memorable meal and family time. What better way to jazz up your Thanksgiving table if not by adding a contemporary twist to the beautiful traditional table setting using unique 3D printed tableware items?
