Back To School Challenge Winner!


Back To School Challenge Winner!

We'd like to congratulate Bethany Jones, a teacher at Mason Middle School, on winning our Back-To-School Polar Challenge — with her twisty pencil holder design! We like it because it not only is a fun and functional design, but it takes advantage of the crazy geometries that can be made available only through 3D printing! 


You can find the object here on the Polar Cloud for download and we encourage you to try it out for yourself! We gave it a whirl in our offices, and love having it around

Bethany will be receiving 3 filament rolls for her winning design and we can't wait to see what else she and her students print with it! You may have noticed Bethany and her students on Twitter printing up cool items like a multicolor Mickey Mouse egg, Rubik's Cube Holder, and Golden Snitch! (see photos below) You can follow Bethany and all the cool things her students make on Twitter, @bethany_jones4.

As always, you can find the latest updates and challenges right here, or on the Polar 3D Facebook and Twitter page. We'll be announcing the next challenge very soon, so stay tuned!

In addition, we're having a captioning contest for a recent video that shows thieves breaking into the Polar 3D warehouse and stealing our printers. The most original captions will be judged for creativity, humor and upvotes from social media.

Love this #3DPrinting product demo! #skulls #color #tech
