Share this Article

d4You know a technology is beginning to inch its way into the mainstream when large corporations begin adopting it in some form or another. There are already hundreds of large companies using 3D printing as a means of manufacturing; this has been the case for years, but now we are seeing this technology used in more consumer-oriented business models. Home Depot is now selling printers within several of their stores, Staples and The UPS Store have adopted the technology as a means to providing a service, and even Dremel, the power tool manufacturer has begun selling their very own 3D printers.

Ever since September, when the Bosch-owned power tools brand unveiled their new printer, the Dremel 3D Idea Builder, they have been very active within the 3D printing community. Since then, they have taken part in a couple of creative design competitions, and this week they announced yet another. Teaming with Instructables, Dremel will be offering several valuable prizes to those who are able to create a video, image, or step-by-step based “Instructable” for a digitally fabricated object.

Those looking to participate, may submit their Instructable any time between now and January 12. In doing so, they will be entering for a chance to win one of 18 different prizes.  Judges will be looking for the most creative 3D printable items, as well as the way in which the steps for creating those items are presented in an educational format. Below is a look at what you could win!

The competition will be stiff, but with the prizes being offered, it’s hard not to try one’s hand by coming up with a unique 3D printable idea.
