Authors had a chance to create models for the MCor Iris 3D printer. We have searched for the best 3D printable model, which could be printed out of paper. And we have found them!

However, there were a lot of innovative models designed especially for MCor Iris. There were a lot of complex designs, for example - jewelry items. From now on, clients of Staples myEasy3D store can buy even a rocket, if they want to launch something made of paper into the space.

Staples 3D Printing Challenge: It's Time To Do Some Paperwork!

Have you ever wondered how would your 3D model look printed? Printed on paper. Yes, I said 3D, and I said on paper! To be precise, printed out of paper. Well, now you have an excellent chance to become the Michelangelo of the 21st century.

Do you remember all those paper-cutting handiworks which you were doing in art class at school? I do. All that symmetrical cutting of simple designs. Though, the process of making it still looked kind of magical back then.

We suggest to remember it and revive the art of paper with an outstanding 3D printing technology. Oh yeah, and we have a 1000 EUR prize for the winner! And a possibility to sell your 3D printed works in one of the largest office supply retailers in the world - Staples. These treasures will be available for the best 3 designers. How about that?
