Last week of Pinshape and eSUN contest!


In the last eight months, we’ve been working with Pinshape on this printing contest and hundreds of thousands of people have submitted their works to win one roll of eSUN filaments. The idea is not only to win but also to share your printing experience with everyone. Now we’d like to share with the last five winning works and hope to host more contests with everyone in the coming new year.




Forbidden Watchtower - 3D Printed by Neuromancer1138

Print Time: 8 hr(s)

Material Type: army green ABS

Layer Height: 0.2 mm

Print Speed: 50.0 mm/s

Extrusion Temperature: 260.0°C   

Infill %: 15.0 %



This watchtower was modeled after the box art of the tabletop game Forbidden Island. The tower is hollow so you can add a LED inside, the base has some room for a battery but it's not specifically designed for any particular setup. There are files for merged whole model (still hollow) and separated roof options. Funnily enough a LED tealight could be used upside down like in one of the pictures to make it look like a lighthouse! For that to fit better you should scale the model up a bit and print the flat roof option. Only the roof cap option does need supports.


Lighthouse on a rock - 3D Printed by troyw



This is very loosely based on the Aniva lighthouse.This lighthouse is once an important military position on the Russian-Japanese border,and is now hailed as one of the most mysterious lighthouses in the world. This lighthouse perfectly demonstrates how very delicate 3D printing model is with precise color painting techniques.

Print Time: 15 hr(s)  

Material Type: PLA

Layer Height: 0.2 mm

Print Speed: 40.0 mm/s

Extrusion Temperature: 205.0°C

With Creative Tools 3D-printable Vega Xmas Star we want to honor the winners of The Nobel Prize in Physics 2014. Without the hard and tenacious work of Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura, today we wouldn't have efficient LED lights or HD flatscreen television sets, computers and mobile devices. The 3D-files for Creative Tools 3D-printable Vega Xmas Star are therefore designed to enclose a standard and commonly available LED light strip. It’s made of 5 identical parts with short segments of 1.75 mm filament to hold the parts together (no glue required!) and ventilation holes provide cooling airflow.
