3D Printable Spare Part Challenge
We all know that everything eventually breaks down right? But you know those times when you see what broke down and think wow, if I could just find a replacement piece for this I could save myself from having to buy a new one of these? Isn't that annoying? Of course, you can waste all the time you want calling and checking online, but we all know how it turns out. You end up with whatever it is that broke in your hand, (sometimes crying), wondering why nobody sells that little replacement part that you need. It seems like the smaller the piece, the harder it is to find. And of course the harder you look, the more frustrating your life gets. Are we destined to suffer through this forever? We're hoping that you can change that with 3D printable spare parts.
Obviously, one of the greatest applications for 3D printing is for spare, or replacement, parts and pieces. That's where our challenge comes in. This one is for designers, printing pros, the tech guys, or really anyone who thinks they can take it on. Think about those things that you or your friends have that always seem to break. All they need is that one tiny piece to fix it, remember? We want you to design that part and send it in. The person with the best 3D printable spare parts design takes the competition. Not feeling motivated yet? This might help. The winner receives a Leapfrog Creatr HS printer worth $2500. Think of what you could do with that. All the spare parts you and your friends need will be right at your fingertips!
Having some trouble coming up with an idea. Here's one to get you started. Some previous generation Apple adapters are know for failing after some use due to it's design. Could you come up with something to fix that? That's just one idea, but the possibilities are endless. No, seriously, they're endless! Take those possibilities and turn them into 3D printable spare parts. Be creative, have fun, and good luck.
