3DPB & 3DPrint Launch Ultimate 3D Printing Giveaway – 9 3D Printers, 140+ Winners, & $13,000+ in Prizes
Over the course of the past year or so, we have seen 3D printing contests and giveaways launch on an almost daily basis. As 3D printing manufacturers, filament resellers, and other 3D printing related vendors and websites try and vie for the attention of technology enthusiasts, they come up with creative ways to start unique contests.
Today, 3DPB.com and none other than your favorite 3D printing news site, 3DPrint.com, have announced the launch of the Ultimate 3D Printing Giveaway, which may just be the largest 3D printing related giveaway ever held.
While there are not formal records that track 3D printing contests and giveaways, we are fairly confident that this is the largest, most comprehensive 3D printing related contest giveaway to ever be held on the internet. At least that’s what our non-existent records tell us. The contest which features 32 different participating 3D printer manufacturers, vendors and websites, will give away over 140 different prizes, valued at a total of over $13,000. These prizes include nine different 3D printers: The Zortrax M200 from Zortrax, KLIC-N-PRINT from KNKUSA.com, NEO 3D Desktop Printer from German RepRap, Mini Kossel Full DIY Kit from MakerGeeks.com, Solidoodle Press from Solidoodle, Portabee KIT from Portabee3D, MOD-t from New Matter, and two 3Doodler 3D printing pens from 3Doodler.
“We would like to thank all of the great 3D printer manufacturers and vendors for providing these amazing 3D printers for this exciting giveaway,” said Eddie Krassenstein, co-founder of 3DPB.com and 3DPrint.com. “We wanted to give our fans, a chance to win some high quality prizes, and we feel that this giveaway will do just that. At the same time, we want to welcome new members to our community, and we feel this is a tremendous way of doing that. 3DPB has become the top general 3D printing related forum on the internet, in the short time that it has been in existence, and 3DPrint.com has become one of the most highly regarded, and visited 3D printing news sites on the net.”Powered by Aniwaa
The contest, which will run from today, September 2, 2014 until December 29, 2014, provides entrants with 5 different ways of entering, in order to earn additional entry tickets. To entice old & new members to take part in the 3DPB community, the contest is focused around just that…. “community discussion”. Winners enter the contest by answering two 3D printing related questions. In addition to this, they can earn more entries by taking part in the forum, as well as social media, and by answering 3D printing related questions posed by each participating vendor.
“I thought this was a unique way to get the vendors to interact with forum members, said Krassenstein. “That’s what community is all about; customers, vendors, and manufacturers all interacting together in order to drive this technology further, by increasing the awareness of the many amazing ways that 3D printers can be used.”
Other vendors that are participating in this contest, besides those mentions previously, include: 3dfilaprint, adafruit, threeding, pinshape, MatterHackers, Insta3D, Co Kreeate, BuildTak, ProtoPlant, E3D, Recreus (FilaFlex), Fennerdrives (NinjaFlex), 3D Thermoplastics, 3DXTech, Toyze, ColorFabb, FormFutura, Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, ShapeHacker, MakerGeeks, FilamentDirect, 3DSupplyWorld, JustFilaments, and PlasticScribbler.
