It’s the design degree staple – redesign the razor – that even secondary school kids are honing their skills on, so what better a subject to get people competing over 3D printing prizes than one we’ve all got shoved away in a drawer somewhere?!
By winning this competition, from Gillette, 3D Hubs and Makers Cafe, you have the chance to receive £300 cash on top of £500 worth 3D Hubs vouchers, with the possibility of an Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer worth £1699!
There are other place prizes worth fighting for, and the Ultimaker 2+ will be awarded to a lucky person who enters the contest or visits the RZR MKR pop-up store in London’s Boxpark next week, so it’s worth taking a look at the small print.
To enter, designers will need to download the CAD files from Gillette (here), and design a handle that must be 3D-printable using FDM printers. Then razor can be designed for Gillette’s Mach3, Venus, or Fusion blades, and you can request a £25 discount from 3D Hubs to print out your design.
The competition closes on 3 August, so you’d better be quick!
