"See a need, fill a need," like they said in the animated film, Robots. MakerBot certainly understands the innate human need to build, create, and solve problems. People like to see a problem, come up with solutions, and then make those solutions real. GrabCAD is the place to share your solutions and The MakerBot Replicator™ 2 Desktop 3D Printer makes it even easier for makers to bring their ideas to life.
In this design challenge with the GrabCAD community, they are asking about your vision for the future of transportation. How will we get around in the year 2040? Will it be by car, plane, boat, bike, or something new that is yet to be created? It is up to you to decide.
Make a 3D printable version of your idea of a futuristic vehicle to win your own MakerBot Replicator™ 2. The second place winner will win a MakerBot Original Replicator (SRP $1,999 USD) and third prize receives $250 USD along with some GrabCAD merchandise. The fourth place through sixth place winners also receive a hard to get GrabCAD shirt and coffee mug.
Models can come together via snap fit, bolts, screws, or glue. For more information on how to build for 3D printing, refer to MakerBot Support.
This is a great chance to add a concept vehicle to your portfolio. This Challenge started on December 10, 2012 and ends on January 11, 2013. Winners will be announced on February 11, 2013 at the latest. Submit your entry, now!
