Have you got some creepy and creative 3D-printing moves for Halloween? If so, put your hairy paws and creepy claws to work at the 3D printer, designing something outlandish for MyMiniFactory’s Halloween contest and giveaway. Submissions close on October 12th, and the winner will be announced on the 28th.

This year, MyMiniFactory is giving away:

  • Staff pick prize – $200 cash + $150 printing credit

FlashForge Dreamer 3D Printer

There are two categories to choose from: the Cabinet of Curiosities, and Halloween Props.

ccCabinet of Curiosities

If you choose to make something for this category, your 3D printed model should be an interesting and strange curiosity to go in the MyMiniFactory cabinet. Printability is as vital as intrigue, of course, and MyMiniFactory says it’s not required that the item be dark and scary, but it should be as interesting as possible, as ”precious and rare objects also make for fantastic show pieces.” No creative pressure here, but they do welcome “priceless jewelery pieces, weapons from unknown warriors, and ceramics from lost dynasties.”

 

propHalloween Props

For this category, MyMiniFactory asks that you ”let your imagination go wild!” They also, if you need a little boost, offer a download for a mask that you can customize. Also given as ideas and images for suggestions besides masks are canes, wands, and the like. It’s recommended that you check out their props and costume section as well.

Make sure to click here to read their guide for your design. They offer tips for support, structure, design, text, orientation, and more. All entries are to be zipped in STL format, along with a render measuring 800×800 pixels, and a detailed object description stating which category you are entering. Designs will be test printed and upon passing the printing process will be entered into the running. If you own a printer, they ask that you include hi-resolution photos of a 3D print of your entry, along with 3D printing settings.

With the grand prize, the FlashForge Dreamer 3D printer, FlashForge promises that “the only limitation is your imagination.” That’s quite appropriate for coming up with a frightening, freaky item for the cabinet of curiousity or a terrifying Halloween prop. Give it your best—Halloween is one of those holidays where you can really go all out and put your creativity to the test.

MyMiniFactory is a free library of 3D printable, beautiful, and useful objects. The first version of MyMiniFactory was launched by UK-based iMakr in 2013, as “the result of many months of hard work by a professional team of experienced 3D designers.”  Is their contest one you would be interested in entering?
