Are you ready? Really, you may want to cancel the cheese squeezing party you’ve been planning and instead plan on squeezing out some extraordinary 3D models. There is but one reason for this.

You have till Friday, November 26th to submit your model for the GrabCAD 3D Printing Challenge. It couldn’t be more simple either. Just upload your model, bask in the comments of others and see what everyone else is submitting. Here are the details.

  • Upload models within 4x4x4in (100x100x100mm) boundary
  • Do that before Friday, November 26th 2010
  • Check out other’s models, comment and share opinions which ones you’d like to see in 3D
  • Stay tuned for the Challenge updates because your model could be one of the three selected, announced on November 29th.

GrabCAD is doing this to try out different 3D Printing services, to see how their quality and price compare among each other. They’ll be doing a detailed review of the different printers after all the prints have been received and reviewed.

This is a chance to get your model printed in glorious 3D and see how 3D printers compare. Go for it.
