Creatlity Ender-3 V2 3D printer prizeWhat would you create with a Creality Ender-3 V2 3D printer? Or perhaps it’s not you who would benefit by having one in your home; this might be great for the kids and family activities. Also, now that school is back in, a 3D printer might be just the thing for students to take their school projects to an A+ level of excellence. Ponder for a few minutes about the possibilities, read this article for some inspiration, then learn how you can enter for a chance to win an industry leading Creality 3D Printer.

Back to school season is a perfect time for learning 3D printing

Who is 3D printing for? Everyone is the best answer, but especially anyone who wants to learn and be creative. Many professions are using them to quickly create models related to their work. For example, architects may iterate designs for a new building by printing them. Engineers too, can see the results of scaled-down versions of their designs in minutes using a 3D printer. And there are many entrepreneurs selling their 3D creations online for practical home applications or for hobbyists.

Crafts and hobbies are one of my favourite applications of this relatively new technology. Imagine having an exact replica of Han Solo’s blaster or Worf’s Bat’leth. There are thousands of videos online showing how to get started.

How hard is it to use an Ender-3 V2 3D printer

Obviously printing 3D objects is not as simple as printing on paper. But there are some similarities. You’ll need a computer to send files to the printer in both cases. You’ll also need to have a complete project ready to go before it can be printed. Printing in 3D requires you to put in the printing medium (and there are a few types), and like regular printing, the print material is sold in cartridges. So you already understand the basics of creating a 3D printed object.

You can learn more about 3D printing and about the 3D printer we are giving away in this contest, by reading Brad Moon’s overview article here on the blog. And there are tons of useful videos online and free to download files to help with setting up your printer setup and creating masterpieces. You and your children will soon be printing for school, for work, and for fun.

  1. I would like to create lion face plaques for fence placement in colours as close to llife-like as reasonably possible.

  2. Winning this would allow me to try opening a small craft business, printing cool office and home gifts customized with people’s name, in the smallest or large size for their enjoyment! Whether its for their wall, or cool accessories to hold their phone and headphones (that they bought from Best Buy!), I would make something that works for their lifestyle.

  3. I’d love to make little figurines like cartoon characters (Scooby Doo, Care Bears…) to decorate my desk and room, in all colours but especially blue!

  4. I would love to be able to print my game pieces and designs and replacement pieces for games instead of making them by hand or of clay or wood. As for colour maybe something like a rainbow or multicolour thing.

  5. The answer is 62 cm and i want mine black.. I would like to design and print m’y own container (boxes and Drawer for my tools and bolts and nuts

  6. I would like to make different dice that could help with teaching fractions. I think I would do 4-sided in blue, 6-sided in red, 8-sided in yellow, one 10-sided in grey and another in purple, and 12-sided in black. I might even add the 20-sider in some brilliant green.

  7. I would print and paint figurines and recreate epic war scenes from the Lord of The Rings series and certain game franchises like Diablo and WoW

  8. I’d like to try making bicycle tire irons which are used to take off and put on tires on bicycle rims (e.g., when fixing a flat). I’d make them black since that is the colour of my bicycle.

  9. I would love to print and then paint a smaller version of the Deathstar, although a life sized one would be cooler but more expensive and I would have nowhere to park it.

  10. I’d give it to my son with ASD. His imagination for creating things are out of this world. I see him designing a new Rubik’s cube. He usually uses material from around the house to create things but this would push his abilities even further and add his inventions to his Youtube channel. He could then hopefully make some cash and be able to be support himself in the future.

  11. I would print a phone holder/mount to attach to my bike. I’d print it in a metallic grey/silver.

    Once you realize the potential of 3D printing, this would be one of the most used tools in the house. Also a great educational tool for my two daughters.

  12. A movie prop replica for my friends home movie theater display, something from his favorite movie. In white so I can easily paint it.

  13. I would print nicer versions of game peices to replace the standard wooden blocks to fancy them up. Many colours wild be used! As to standard prints I would likely gray for most other things.

  14. I would use the printer to create scale architectural models in white and then paint the details for each model.

  15. A dolphin in Flex ocean blue. PLA and PET-G are quite easy to print. Play with wood filament or flex, then you can say that you are printing 🙂

  16. 3D printers are an amazing piece of technology! Now that it’s affordable to do at home, the sky is the limit. I have lots of uses for 3D printing; ranging from small projects to home improvements to automotive applications (headlight shrouds, interior panels, etc). Multiple colours and filaments would be needed.

    • The skys the limit for 3D printing. I would love to win one for my niece who can use it for school projects. She is very creative and talented.
