Tips for Winning the Contest

  • Picture quality is important – Take a great picture to highlight your project and the new feature you’re using.
  • Use your creativity and print something unique – Although the Benchy is a great model it may not set you apart from other contestants. Find a unique model to print, or create your own to make sure you stand out!
