We want to reward those who upload amazing photos of their prints! That’s why we are giving away 1 license to Simplify3D and 2 rolls of IC3D filament to the best picture of a print! Pictures of prints will be judged on the following:

Creativity : 40 points
Overall design quality, uniqueness, intricacy and detail
Technical Excellence : 40 points
Ease of printing on an FDM printer, technical quality of the design
Presentation : 20 points
You will be judged on the quality of the design description. This includes things like: talking about the features you want to draw attention to, mentioning what you are depicting in your design, including optimal print settings, including high-quality photos and using proper tags. ** Please note – having your model 3D printed does help to illustrate your design is printable on an FDM printer and helps with higher presentation quality. If you are a 3D designer who doesn’t have access to a 3D printer, please use this thread in our forums to reach out to a maker in the community who can print the design for you!
