We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Shapeways, the 3D printing service and marketplace, for a fun contest combining 3D printing and littleBits. The winner will get over $5,000 in prizes, including a littleBits Pro Library!
We frequently use 3D printing at the littleBits office when we’re designing favorite projects, like the Remote-Control Facetime Car and the Keytar. Now, we want to see how you can incorporate 3D printing into your littleBits creations and bring your 3D-printed projects to life. To enter, upload a design for 3D printing that incorporates at least 2 littleBits modules that will help bring your 3D print alive. To get you started, we released the STL and STEP files of seven modules for you to download and import into your 3D modeling software of choice. Download littleBits 3D files here.
Head to Shapeways for all the details on how to enter but get started soon, your model must be uploaded to Shapeways by Monday 29th of September 2014 by Midnight PST
The winning 3D model will win over $5,000 in prizes: including the littleBits Pro Library, a $500 3D printing credit to Shapeways, and your design printed by Shapeways.
