Snapmaking Contest – Upcycle results are out!

Hi makers, it’s been almost a month since the announcement of our 5th Snapmaking Contest. The results are finally out! Let’s take a look at our community’s creation!

From over 100 entries, 4 winners were picked by the community and Snapmaker staff members.

Below is what the Snapmaker staff had to say about this contest: 

“We were very surprised by many of the creative and practical contest entries. It’s the first time that we run the marathon contest beyond the Facebook group since we realize that we need a place to involve all excellent Snapmaker users in. This is a stage for all of you, to show your talent, please stay tuned and waiting for the next round of Snapmaking Contest!”

    1. Hi Khurram, thank you for your support and work! We really liked your project and are looking forward to your next creation! 🙂

  1. I wanted to download the ferris wheel file but my antivirus product detected a virus. Can’t comment on his page about it because I can’t enter the japanese characters to get past the “are you human” authentication. Snapmaker please provide a link to the STL file that is clean or encourage the maker to post it to thingiverse!

    1. Hi Kelly, sorry about the file issue you ran into. My colleague is going to help you get the file and will see if we can post it here for sharing! And solid point regarding Thingiverse!
