Want $100 to spend on Tindie items? While you could take routes such as working overtime, speculating in cryptocurrency, or selling your own goods here, one excellent idea is to enter into Hackaday’s Repairs You Can Print Contest. This contest invites you to show off practical uses for your 3D printer that don’t always get a lot of attention since they just work. Show how you repaired something through 3D Printing.
Examples of this kind of project include replacement wheels for suitcases or vacuum cleaners, but the possibilities are limitless.
Students and Organizations Can Win a High-End 3D Printer!
In addition to $100 Tindie credit for the top 20—yes, 20—contestants, students and organizations that enter—such as hackerspaces and robotics clubs—are each eligible to win a Prusa i3 Mk3 printer with a multi-material upgrade.
While perhaps the contest isn’t worth intentionally breaking something just to show off your fix, if you’ve fixed something with your printer of you have something you’ve been procrastinating fixing, you have until 12PM PST on February 20th to get it done and documented to enter!
