would love a new challenge. I couldn’t get going on the fidget spinner (too much at end of year with work) but now I’m free’d up.

I am interested as we are not on mandatory overtime like the end of last year.

How about something ‘mechanical’? Clocks, gears, gidgets, gizmos? Something non-“flat”. Even things like the ‘Scrooge’ Xmas book from before. Kick it up a notch.

Checked on Kickstarter for some ideas… here are a few…

Maybe a fidget spinner out of this one as well…

Always up for a good contest! Let’s do something different, we already had a spinner contest. Anyone up for something with PCB boards, Acrylic, Metal?

Love the idea. I am very new to the group and welcome the challenge

Just thinking flat pack type stuff (lawn chair) (table) (storage box) etc. etc, I would bet there would be some wild ideals made here.

So, in my mind, there are two kinds of contests. First is a contest to get beginners to stretch themselves and to make something they may not necessarily have known they could do. That’s very valuable in and of its own right for the community. The stamp contest was a perfect example of that.

The second type of contest is to get the “Usual Suspects” to make something extraordinary to show the world what can be done with Easel/X-Carve. The fidget spinner contest was an example of that since a lot of the entries involved machining materials not for sale on the Inventables website (i.e. aluminum). Both have their separate and distinct benefits for Inventables and the community.

Just something to think about…
