We heard that you like doge... Alright, you know what are we talking about - Meme 3D Printing Challenge. We had this amazing and, should we say, full-of-internet challenge to find the best 3D printable memes.
3D artists had five weeks to come up with something funny, relevant, 3D printable and shareable. 211 3D printable meme models were made for this challenge. Such much WOW! A lot of worldwide known memes were turned into 3D printable objects. Grumpy cat, troll face, "please tell me more" face - these are just few of the memes which were smart designed and became a doll, a ring or a statuette.
So, here they are - the best 3D printable memes on the net. Come and check, who made the best models and earned great 3D printing prizes!
BEST MEME 3D PRINTABLE MODEL
This one comes from the grandmaster of 3D printable memes. Ryan Kittleson is really good at bringing memes to real life. Joseph Ducreux was a French portrait painter. His self-portrait become a well known meme which can be 3D printed in colors now. Straight from the 18th century to the 1st place of our challenge.
Winner will get 300 USD from CGTrader, 200 USD gift card to shop on Sculpteo, promotional features of 3D printed design on Mashable, 100 USD gift card to shop on Protoparadigm, filaments from 3D 2Print and a CGTrader T-shirt.
We approve this 3D printable meme! Wouldn't it be nice to have a statuette of president of the U.S. approving everything you do on your desktop?! We bet it would! Nice work on details is enough to name this model the 1st runner-up in this category.
The 2nd runner-up in this category is also a statuette. We guess that Good Guy Greg could be a nice gift for your buddy who owes you money, for example. Just a nice 3D printed reminder to give them back. But it is just a guess, as we said. Congrats, Felix, you made something special out here.
