    Cool Contests Related To 3D Printing!!!

    I recently won first place in the 3D Printer World Expo Jewelry Design contest! Get one here if you want one for yourself!


    I call it, Silicon Innovations Of The Ages.

    40,000 years ago our highest technological innovation was in making arrowheads, while today our highest technological innovation is in making CPUs and interestingly both have the main ingredient of silicon. So I combined the two together to into this pendent! The pendent is actually the main component of a time machine from the year 2065! It is the CPU of an ultracomputer that actually uses quantum entanglement processing to calculate both the future and the past. This type of CPU actually needs to be made from an actual arrowhead to link human life form energy to the time when the arrowhead was first constructed so as to enable calculations extending back to that time. Errrr ummm, yeah, long story! HAHA!

    How do I know about all this? Well, I invented it in the year 2060. You see, my future self came back in time and showed me this pendent that everyone is wearing in 2065, so that I could win this contest, so I could get the money to begin working on the time machine in this plane of time.

    JUST KIDDING!!! HAHAHA!

    Or am I? hehe

    Anyway, post up 3D printing related contests that you run into so that we can all have a chance to participate.
    What will become of the world when 3D printers can print 3D printers?

    Cool

    GrabCAD just announced a Portable Stand Up Paddle Board Challenge! This is a 3D printing related challenge so you don't have to enter a solid model, rather, they will be requiring STL format. This means anyone that has polygonal modeling experience can enter, as well as anyone who has solid modeling experience.

    There is a special prize for the best 3D printed entry, and I want to give participants the chance to get familiar with 3D printing even when they do not have a printer yet themselves.

    In this topic I want to give those participants the chance to ask for advice on 3D printing so we can share our knowledge and experience with others. Perhaps if anyone is up to it, prototype someone's idea even.

    It would be great if we as a community can contribute to this contest by lending our helping hand, and obviously submit the best hack imaginable!

    Good luck everyone!
