Shapeways, the Dutch 3D printing company, is coming to Maker Faire, all the way from the Netherlands! We’re thrilled to have them on-board. To get their user-community excited, and to get some cool 3D objects to show off at the Faire, they’re holding a contest. Here are the details:

To inspire people we would like to show off the best models that you can possibly make. Something that will make people go wow! Something that explains how 3D printing will change things. Something that someone will look at, hold in their hand and can make this?

The Maker Faire contest is your chance to have your most amazing design made. Anything you want, anything that you think will inspire and amaze is game. The top 3 models will be 3D printed, exhibited at Maker Faire, and then sent to the lucky winners. The winning designer gets an additional $300 in 3D printing from us.

The fine print: The contest closes the 15th of May. Enter by adding the tag: makerfaire to your upload. Your model has to be less expensive than $200.
