A 3D modeling contest has been launched that offers a complete MakerBot Replicator 2X as first prize. The sponsor is unlikely for a 3D contest: 2D print cartridge company CartridgeSave.co.uk.
Nevertheless, a contest is a contest. This one involves producing a figurine of an "original 3D character", "your ultimate action hero". The organizers will print out your design on their Rep2X at a Manchester, UK meetup and determine who wins the contest.
Registration is at their website below. The contest is open and entries may be received until 27 June. The meetup occurs on 11 July.
If you're in Manchester this could be one of the easiest ways to get your hands on a MakerBot Replicator 2X.
