This week, we launched the Proto-pasta Print Contest where we’ll be selecting five winners to receive sample packs of exotic filaments each week for the next two months. Any of this week’s featured designs would make for great entries! If design is more your style, enter into the Avatar Design Contest for the chance to win prizes from Formlabs, Oculus, Mold3D, and Pixologic.

This design is printed directly on the platform and has multiple articulating joints. A great way to dial in your bridging settings and to show off your printer.
