Won a brand new FlashForge Finder with 826 votes

If I won a FlashForge Finder, I would print little statues, toys and other neat ornaments and place them around Sydney for people to find and keep. This would be similar to the free art friday movement.

Great idea! Where do we sign up?
Jack of Blacktown, NSW
Won a brand new FlashForge reator Pro PLUS All-Metal Hotend kit PLUS ProtoPasta Filament Pack with 466 votes

Flashorge Tooler
A removable add on to the Flashforge Finder, the Flashforge Tooler is a solution to all your 3D storage needs. Features a spool holder, two drawers and an open storage compartment on top.

And there's a downloadable .stl model too!
1st Place: Cynetics of Cronulla, NSW

Won a Free Spool of ProtoPasta Carbon Fibre / PLA Blend PLUS a MicroSwiss Twin Clad Nozzle

I would use Proto-pasta fibre filament to print component for racing sailing dinghy. Most yachting parts are made of stainless steel. Stainless steel and Carbon Fibre don't get on very well. The carbon & steel react with each other and the reaction dissolves the steel. Usually parts need to be custom built by creating molds and laying up carbon with resin. I could design precise parts in CAD, 3D print them and glue them to other carbon fibre spars such as a mast without the metal / carbon fibre problems. Manufacturing custom sailing parts in Carbon fiber is generally very messy using resins & lots of sanding. Sanding carbon fiber is very difficult as the fibres don't wear like other materials. 3D printing in Carbon fibre should eliminate the normal problems associated with custom part creation. The image attached is an example of a rope exit port for a carbon fiber spinnaker pole on an MG14 racing skiff. Although the part is not that exciting to look at, imagine the process required to make this from Carbon fibre without using 3D printing.


2nd Place: Will of Narromine, NSW

Won a Free Spool of ProtoPasta Carbon Fibre / PLA Blend PLUS a MicroSwiss Twin Clad Nozzle

I would use Proto-pasta carbon fibre filament to print mad upgrades for my homemade delta printer.


3rd Place: Brayden Weber of Dora Creek, NSW

Won a ProtoPasta Matte Fibre Filament Pack

I would use Proto-pasta Fibre Filament to create reinforced structures for mini quads which is something I really enjoy. In mini quads the printed components need to be strong but light. I am actively involved in local groups and would also use this to help them. I would like to be considered but currently I would have to get someone else to use it as I don't own my own 3D printer but can get a friend to print with it. I will hopefully however get one in future as I am a huge fan and love printing my ideas!

2234Eithan CliffordNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would make as many requests as I can, do my own giveaway and show what 3D printing is to people and try to get them in on this amazing community we have.Entry
3161KatrionaNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would use it in the schools where I teach coding/making, which can't afford a printer. Plus I could create a pop-up / mobile makerspace. I want to empower kids (and adults) to make things of use to their communities and learn design using free tools such as Tinkercad or Beetleblocks.Entry
4138CourtneyNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would 3D print items which can be used in my retail position. Creating props, stands and all kinds of things that would make merching products together easier and more eye catching to the consumer.Entry
5122IanACTIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would print plant pots for the friends and people around me.
I have always wanted to grow capsicums and chillies and recently started an ambitious gardening project. Life got in the way (break-up) and I had to move out of where I was living.
I couldnt really take all my plants with me and started trying to give them away. I had the idea of putting peoples names on the pots of the plants I was giving them to make it more exciting for them. People really responded to the customised touches. I moved onto full pots which had even more impact. I started to get requests for special pots for friends that need cheering up, or as going away gifts for people changing jobs etc.
My printer is a tired, home-made job, and does sloppy work. People dont seem to mind but I know that they could be nicer looking and sturdier. A new FlashForge Finder is the perfect size - pots are made ~12cm diameter and 12cm high. It would really make a difference to produce better gifts like pot plants and let me share the fun that 3d printing can bring.

6114OskarNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would use it to help with my development of ongoing innovation projects as well as let my tinkering roll into action, 3D design being my passion. Not only would I use it to help further my 3D design knowledge and future engineering career, but I would try to find new ways to improve and test concept ideas and prototypes for this machine and my other projects.Entry
7111Brayden WeberNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would finally be able to let my creative side free! I am one of those people who ALWAYS have ideas and plans to create useful tools or things to solve problems but have no way to prototype and manufacture. I rely on others and if I had a FlashForge I would not only turn ideas into creation for myself. I would also help others create their ideas. An idea is only good if you can share it.Entry
863JackieNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I wouldn't be forced to rely on 3D printing services anymore. 3D printing is the future; I've known that since I first saw my school's printer create a beautiful shell for somebody's RoboBot. I've been entranced by the design process and the fact that anything I want, need, or simply imagine can be put in front of me. Printing services are great, but expensive and take a long time. I've also looked into getting a printer myself, but it'd cost too much. This printer, my own printer, will let my creativity free and my imagination rampant!Entry
944ErikNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would print myself parts to make my own 3d printer, then resell the finder, and let that pay for all the components I couldn't print.Entry
1044TimNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would cross it off my Christmas wishlist to save Santa the effort of making me one and then finally apply my 3D printing knowledge to practice. Everyone wins, even Santa.Entry

2010Tayla ChoiceNSWIf I won a FlashForge Finder, I would probably never see my Fiance again as he would be forever creating and printing all the ideas he has swirling around in his head. Instead of telling me about them he will finally be able to show me what he means!Entry
