3D Design Contest – 3D Printed Kid’s Toys

3D Design Contest – 3D Printed Kid’s Toys

3D design contest: Create the next great toy and we’ll donate it to a children’s hospital, sell it for you on Amazon.com and give you some awesome prizes!


In partnership with Pixologic, Wacom, Digital Tutors, Sculpteo and Clara.io, we’re excited to announce the 3D Printed Kids’ Toys Design Contest!

This is your chance to bring smiles and joy to kids everywhere, through the magic of 3D printing. Design a 3D printable toy (action figure, playset, puzzle, game, building blocks, and more), and submit it to the contest. The Pinshape Community will narrow down the choices, our great panel of judges will select the winners, we’ll bathe you in awesome prizes from our partners and the incredible kids at the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital will get some new toys to play with!

Thanks to our partners, we have some awesome prizes to give away to the winning entries.  There are prizes available for the top 5 entries, but here is the one everyone will be gunning for:

To win, you’ll need to finish in the top 10% most liked designs (users vote by clicking like on the designs on Pinshape), or get hand selected by one of our judges to be considered part of the final judging phase. With that in mind, the more you share your entry with friends and family and anyone else, the more likely you are to gain the number of likes you need to make it!

We’ve teamed with some amazing judges (Adam Ross, Joe Menna, Greg Callahan, Klim Kozinevich & Paul Gaboury)  who are all experts in 3D printing and have some incredible experience including hollywood movies and toy creation. They will be choosing the final winner based on both the design itself and the way it’s presented on Pinshape.

The contest will be open to submissions worldwide until 23:59 PST August 1, 2014.

What are you waiting for, help bring some joy to kids now!
