This holiday season marks our second annual 3D printed ornament challenge. We had so much fun running this competition last year that we couldn’t resist doing it again. So once again, we will be hosting a fun competition to get your creative juices flowing. We challenge you to design your own 3D printable ornament for a chance to win some great prizes.

71il85du4il-_sl1500_Tis the season to give your friends, family and loved ones a meaningful gift and what could be better than a gift that you designed? This is your chance to create something unique and, if you win, you will get your special ornament printed and delivered right to your door for free. In addition to receiving their unique 3D-printed ornament, the grand prize winner will also get a Bose SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker! The first runner-up will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card and the 2nd & 3rd place winners will receive $50 Amazon Gift Cards. All you need to do is get designing. Get creative. Use your favorite tradition as inspiration and create an ornament that is fun, festive, and unique to you!

Cimquest will use an internal vote to narrow the field down to 5 ornaments. The top 5 designs will be posted to our Facebook page for public voting. The design that receives the most combined likes will be the grand prize winner.

There are just a few rules that you need to follow:

  1. You need to submit your design to Cimquest by December 10, 2016 via email.
  2. Please post a screen shot of your part on either Facebook or Twitter and tag it with #CQ3DPrintedOrnament.
  3. Your file must contain a watertight solid: Native CAD or Neutral File Format (SAT, STEP, IGES, X_T)
