Frequently Asked Questions
How do I enter the contest?
Submit an original, 3D printable design to Pinshape by checking the “Submit this model to Pinshape Support-Free Design Contest” on the upload form.
What kind of files can I submit for the challenge?
We accept .STL, .OBJ, .FORM, .PDF, .DOCX, .TXT and .ZIP files. You can submit up to a max of 150 files and 25 photos (this is photos of the design not files for the design). 100MB is the maximum total file size.
What happens to my design if I win?
You will keep ownership of the design and it will remain available to everyone in the Pinshape community to enjoy!
Can I submit designs I’ve made available on other sites or for other contests?
Yes you can. If it isn’t on Pinshape yet and it is something you’ve designed, it’s fair game!
Do I still own my designs when I post them?
Of course! We will never take over control of your work, we’re on your side.
When/how will the winners be announced?
The winner will be announced in the week following the end of the contest, in a post on the Pinshape blog. If you’re a winner, you’ll be contacted directly by the Pinshape team.
