2-for-1 3D Printing Competition Submissions

February 25, 2012 in Our News, Things We Like

Tekla Labs’ 3D printing competition is on and the first designs have been submitted! We’ll be acccepting submissions until the end of April.

There have been some questions about the ownership/sharing of submitted designs: we’re encouraging everyone to be as open as possible and to share their designs through our website or other online portals. See the competition guidelines for details of our open license suggestion. However, this is ultimately up to you, and feel free to suggest alternatives that work for you!

In addition, Instructables is hosting an even larger competition – Make it Real – with $100,000 in prizes for the best designs! And best of all, you can submit the same designs to both competitions!  Thanks to Instructables again for sponsoring our competition at the same time as they are running their own and for supporting “2-for-1″ dual submissions.
