Batman v Superman Contest Winners Announced!

It’s Superman v Batman! We had a lot of fun going through all the entries for this design contest – it’s one of our most popular contests yet! Amazing design work from all entrants, we were really impressed and it was a tough job to pick only three winners. 

Since we received so many amazing submissions, we had to give honourable mention to some of the top contenders. Here are some of the awesome designs we received that were in our Top 10 (in no particular order)!

Nice work by FLOWALISTIK – full points for technical excellence! He made sure this support free design was easy to print and ripe for modifications. See full details including source files and instructions on how to put it together on the design page.

We love the incredible detail in this Bat-mobile (from Dark Knight) design by dodo2000! It was designed to print easily on FDM printers so we can’t wait to see all the different variations the community prints. 


After much deliberation from the judges… here are the winners!!
