Thank you all for your support and for being part of the Spyder 3D World community! We’ve been listening to the feedback from the community and we’ve found that the filament itself has been the biggest drawback to 3D printing. The common frustrations include:
- Bed adhesion
- Interlayer adhesion
- Heat resistance
- Impact Strength
- Moisture absorption / Air pockets
- Health concerns
RULES & FAQSHOW TO ENTER Please submit a short essay to firstname.lastname@example.org on the different, creative ways you have applied your 3D printing skills. If you’re a service bureau, please let us know your 3D printing capabilities and your weekly print volume. We look forward to hearing from all of you! WHEN IS THE ESSAY DUE DATE? Please be sure to submit your essay via email to info@Spyder3D.com at or before midnight on May 27, 2016. HOW WILL YOU BE HELPING US? WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING? If you are one of the 20 designers and printer service providers selected, you will be sent a variety of sample spools. You will then print your own designs using the filaments we send you. Once your designs have been printed, you will send us your prints, both good and bad prints, along with your experience and/or frustrations while working with each filament. WILL THE PARTICIPANTS BE PAYING FOR SHIPPING? No, the participants will be sent shipping labels for their prints. WHEN WILL THE 20 PARTICIPANTS BE CHOSEN? The 20 participants will be selected on June 10, 2016. We want to start this project with you immediately! WHEN WILL THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER BE CHOSEN? The grand prize winner will be selected after we’ve analyzed all of your evaluations and the development process is complete with a final product. WHEN WILL THE 10 SPOOLS BE REWARDED TO THE 20 PARTICIPANTS? The 20 participants will be rewarded the 10 spools once the final product has been produced. The final Spyder 3D filament will incorporate all of the participants’ evaluations and inputs. IS AIRFARE INCLUDED WITH THE GRAND PRIZE? Airfare is not included with the grand prize.
