Thingiverse Challenges

Ornament Challenge

It’s time for tree trimming, and we’re holding a Thingiverse challenge to celebrate. We've teamed up with the Peabody Award-winning public radio show Studio 360, hosted by cultural critic and author Kurt Andersen and produced by WNYC and PRI, to co-sponsor a Thingiverse Ornament Challenge.

Design an ornament, upload it to Thingiverse, and tag it #MakerBotOrnaments.
