There simply could not be a better pairing than 3D printing and Halloween—and contests shall abound! At Pinshape, the competition is on, so it’s time to access your dark side and come up with a simply monstrous creation for the ‘3D Printed Creature Contest.

creature design logoPinshape is teaming up with Kast, who will be printing contestants’ designs on their new 3D printer which has not been available to the public yet—and will also be offered as a first prize! It’s important to pay special attention to all the requirements to make sure that your design will be easily printed by Kast.

The First Prize Winner Will Receive a Kast 3D Printer.

Pinshape encourages their designers and users to push the envelope with creativity, and what better time to do that than All Hallows’ Eve? The basic parameters of the contest, open now, are that you create an original 3D printable creature (see here for more specifics) that fits in a 20cm x 15.4cm x 30cm (X,Y,Z) build area.

Your goal then is to register on Pinshape (all of this is free), submit your creature design, and get as many ‘likes’ on Pinshape as possible, with the top ten percent of the ‘most liked’ Pinshape designs being entered as finalists. Once your design reaches that point, judges scrutinize for quality, novelty, innovation, ease of printing, and compatibility with the Kast printer. Contestants should be prepared to give descriptions, backstory, and provide good pictures of the item they have created.

Awesome prizes are given for first, second, and third places. With first prize being a Kast printer (we have just covered this incredible new device), that’s pretty good motivation! If you win, you will receive one of these printers before even their Kickstarter backers do. The new Kast 3D printer, which is fast, affordable, and offers high resolution, is hailed as “the first 3D printer of the next generation.” First prize also wins:

  • 1 copy of Metaio Creator
  • 6 Month Subscription to Loot Crate (in available countries)
  • 1 year of CGCookie Citizen
  • Your design listed and sold on Amazon
  • Coverage in Pinshape social media channels

Second and third prizes win:pin1

  • CGCookie Citizen membership
  • 1 month Cloud PRO + Creator bundle from Metaio
  • Your design listed and sold on Amazon
  • Coverage in Pinshape social media channels

Pinshape asks that you register on their website and enter your awesomely scary creature by October 31st.

Pinshape, a 3D printing marketplace and community offers 3D printing enthusiasts and designers the chance to buy, sell, and share 3D designs. You can have items 3D printed through Pinshape and you can also order very unique items as gifts. They offer a community forum too. Their mission is to “connect people all around the world to learn, explore, buy, sell, download, and order prints or incredible personalized products through the magic of 3D printing.”

So enter your work, and set your friends to ‘haunting’ your work and liking it on Pinshape. Will you be entering this contest for Halloween, or perhaps something similar? Share your plans with us in the Halloween Contest forum at 3DPB.com.
