We’re racking up the entries for the MAKE/MakerBot CupCake CNC kit giveaway! Design a 3D object and put it on Thingiverse for a chance to win your own 3D printer! Bre’s been tagging Thingiverse things with “makeentry” (169 so far) to organize them on their end, but you can also see all the entries so far (and submit your own by May 5th) at the giveaway landing page.

Need help getting started? Try out Sean’s OpenSCAD tutorial!


I like this futuristic cupcake design by SolidWorksMagi,


this t-rex cookie cutter by whowhatwhere,


and this dragonfly by guru.
