Pinshape Support-Free Design Contest: Make Your Great Designs Easy to Print!

3D printing is a lot of fun, but figuring out which supports to select when slicing, and post processing your print after the fact aren’t fun. That’s why we’re introducing the Pinshape Support-Free Design Contest! 

We want your best, most creative designs, but keep in mind that they have to be without supports. You could be the proud owner of a new Einstart-S Desktop 3D Printer and have your design displayed during Shining 3D’s International 3D Printing Fashion Show!

You’ve got free rein to design whatever you please, but to get your gears going, here are some typical items people love: 

  • Life Hacks (Organizers, tools or anything useful!)
  • Desk Toys
  • Instruments
  • Fan Art
  • Puzzles

Anything goes, as long as your design can be printed support-free on a typical FDM/SLA printer. 

The contest ends at 11:59PM PST June 15, 2015. What can you design? Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 8.53.30 PMThe Prizes
