Participants must submit designs on the theme of “Xmas decorations” using Vectary and upload their creations before the 22 December. They will be in with a chance of winning a 3D printer from MakeX.
Design a Christmas decoration or upload a tutorial
Vectary is a free online 3D design platform that can be accessed directly from a browser. It allows designers to create complex shapes for use in 3D printing, VR and AR. Objects created on Vectary must be submitted to the competition using the platform’s MyMiniFactory Exporter plugin.
Especially for this competition, Vectary has also created a bonus competition category. To enter this secondary contest, participants must upload a YouTube video tutorial of themselves using Vectary, showing others their process and workflow. All uploads featuring “Vectary” in their title will be considered.
Competition rules and prizes
The winner of the main competition will receive a MakeX M-Jewelry 3D printer worth over $3500, and two runners up will each receive one of MakeX’s new MIGO 3D printers. Bonus prizes include an “AVer media Live Gamer Portable 2,” a Vectary Swag Bag, and 10 free private model slots.
Participants may enter the competition as many times as they like into the main Xmas decoration or Vectary tutorial category. For extra exposure, designers should use the hashtag #madewithvectary in their work.
3D printing submitted designs and attaching a photo to the competition entry will earn extra consideration. A panel of judges from MyMiniFactory and Vectary will decide the winning entries based on creativity and printability, amongst other features. The competition deadline is 22 December.
Help and inspiration from Vectary
To make it easier for anyone to participate in the competition, Vectary has created a series of comprehensive templates and tutorials. These include a video guides on “Editing a Gingerbread Man,” “Creating a Twirl Bauble,” and making a DIY snow globe.
The competition is accepting entries from now until the 22 December. Get creative for Christmas, and be in with a chance of winning.
