Anduril, Frostmournem, Mirkwood bow… these are the names of legendary fantasy weapons that have slain many an enemy. Every great hero has their weapon - Gandalf proves that even mages can be partial to a good sword - and those blades, spears and bows can be as fancy as they come. Here’s your chance to forge your own legendary weapon that will win you treasures and accolades. We are running a Fantasy Weapon Challenge!

Time to put your chef hat and make something for the kitchen. That's right, we're running a 3D Printed Kitchen Accessories Challenge. Your task is to model some thing that, once 3D printed, could be used in the kitchen. Nessie laddles are out (and probably copyrighted), but you can definitely make spoon holders, salt shakers, and whatever other thingamajigs might be useful in the kitchen. Try not to poison anyone!

The most glamorous of our challenges, the 3D Printing in Fashion World Challenge, is over! Your worked hard, put a lot of blood and sweat (and vertices) into your work. In fact, you worked so hard, this challenge had 551 entries - that’s the most entries any challenge had had in the past 14 months. Amazing! Fabulous! Fashionable!
The judges worked long and hard - fists were almost thrown - but we’ve finally decided on the winners. The first place winners will get Mbot GridII+ SH 3D Printers and LIX pens, and all winners will be able to enjoy printing filaments from Innofil3D as well as CGTrader prizes.
