Top Entries for our Push Plastic Print Contest
Model kit – Han Solo’s DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol by 3DNG
3DNG used the Simplify3D license they won in the Batman v Superman contest to slice this model. Not only did they do a great job printing and post processing the model but 3DNG is the original designer! Looks like they’re putting Simplify3D to good use.
Scarab Beetle Box (with secret lock)- by TriForce
The aged look on this ancient Egyptian style beetle box really brings it to life! TriForce did a great job with the print and picked a fantastic design by Louise Driggers.
Dwarfclan Bondi (18mm scale) – by fuzionist
Despite this print being quite small, fuzionist was able to keep all the details in place and used a 0.04mm layer height! Special shout out to his wife who painted it by hand – the post processing takes this model to the next level! Check out all his slicer settings on the print page.
The Steam Rocket – by Pikitote
This beautiful print was made with co-polyester so that Pikitote could sand it down to paint with oil! The oil paints is where the amazing metallic look comes from. Check out the before and after pictures on the print page.
Robot woman “Robotica” – by tigerklaue
The detail in this jointed model is incredible! As it turns out, you don’t necessarily need any fancy supplies for post processing as her colour was put on with permanent marker. Looks great!
A big thank-you to our sponsor PushPlastic! We can’t wait to see what our winners print with their new filament.
If you didn’t win this time – don’t worry! We’ve got another print contest on the way. If you’re a 3D designer, don’t forget to check out our Within Reach Design contest where you can design an assistive tool for someone with limited use of their hands. The winner will take home an Ultimaker 2+.
