Frequently Asked Questions

Please go through these questions before contacting us

How can I participate in the challenge?

Simply upload 3D printable model, check the box Valentine's 3D Printing Challenge while uploading and you are IN!


How much models can I submit to the challenge?

There are no restrictions on that. More models - more chances to be on the winner designers list!


What is a 3D printable model?

A 3D printer needs files in the industry standard file format STL, or WRL for multiple color prints. Most 3D design software can export to STL. 3D printable models have additional requirements in their design - models must be watertight, which means that the model has only closed solids, and no open surfaces.


Do free 3D models participate in the challenge?

Yes, absolutely. Sharing artwork is always appreciated in the community.


Can I sell my 3D models which participated in other challenges elsewhere?

Yes. There are no restrictions on publishing and selling your models elsewhere.


Do price tags play any importance when entries are being judged?

No. But do not forget that the prices are always judged by the customers.


I want to participate in the challenge so I am going to delete my already uploaded models and upload them again to meet the "publishing period" requirement. Can I do that?

No. We are tracking every deleted and uploaded model, so it is useless to drive-through our requirements of the challenge.
