A submission in the MakerBot ornament competition.
It’s not every year that advanced manufacturing geeks can get jazzed about decorating for the holidays.
The contest is co-sponsored by Studio 360, a public radio show hosted by Kurt Anderson. If the winner of the ornament contest is in the U.S., he or she will get a $1000 voucher to travel to New York City and participate in a live Studio 360 with Kurt Anderson event on Dec. 17 with the CEO of MakerBot, Bre Pettis. If the winner is located outside the U.S., then the winner will participate in the Dec. 17 event through Skype.
“Ornaments are always fun to create and often have special meaning to individuals and families, so it will be awesome to create some favorite holiday ornaments or design new ones that can be shared on Thingiverse and 3D printed to give to family and friends,” Pettis said in a statement.
A winner will be selected based on the originality of the design, the appropriateness of the holiday theme and the viability for the design to be made with a 3D printer.
