In December, I won a 3D printing contest sponsored by Pinshape (twitter). I made (and played) a 3D printed recorder, and tweeted my way to victory. I received $135 to spend at their store, so I got some stuff I couldn’t make with my printers.
I found a ring that is printed out of Sterling Silver and I thought the DNA sequence would be a great gift for my friend Cyndi, who studied Biology in college. The form and function meet well, and make a really unique and fun piece of jewelry.
For my friend Chris, I found a Fractal Bulb that is made on a sintering printer. This thing is fascinating to look at it, and I think it was really well received.
The most amazing part of this model is the detail on the *inside* of the bulb. Definitely well beyond what I can make at home, so it’s cool to see where the technology is headed.
Cool contest, and I’m definitely grateful to Pinshape for the stuff. Thanks dudes!
