Hey all,

You might have read our Key Considerations Before Buying a 3D Printer post in this blog a few months back.  Well check out a new and improved version on Engineering.com!

There are a few new nuggets in there – including links to a number of great resources to inform your search.  As we spell out, it’s important to take application, hard costs, soft costs, obsolescence risks, and viable alternatives into account.  We hope you find it insightful.  And as always, if you have questions, feel free to reach out to us.  You can also comment below or in Engineering.com comments section…

3Diligent Trophy Contest Finalists Announced!

Hey Everyone,

It’s been a very exciting last few weeks at 3Diligent as design submissions for our 3D Printed Trophy Contest to honor the World Champion Kansas City Royals rolled in!  While we received a number of outstanding submissions, we felt two designs truly separated themselves from the rest.  So without further ado, we announce these 3Diligent Trophy Contest Finalists:

  1. The team of Samuel Hrabko, Raghav Parikh, and Momin Tahirkheli
  2. Vladimir Nikolic

Congratulations to our finalists!

In addition, we wanted to also offer special recognition to Bill Griffiths’ 3D Printing class at the Pembroke Hill School in Kansas City, Missouri.  Not only did their high school class generate one of the finalist trophies in the Hrabko-Parikh-Tahirkheli team, but also submitted two additional excellent trophies from Gregory Bortnick and Macauley Greif.  In honor of their contributions, we’re extending $250 in platform credit to Mr. Griffiths’ class for future class projects and $50 cash to each Gregory and Macauley.

So there we have it.  Who will prove to be the Royals and who will be the Mets in this World Series of Trophy Design?  We’ll look forward to gathering your input in deciding a champion between our two finalists in the coming weeks!

Best Regards,

Your Friends at 3Diligent
