Last month, on the 20th of october we organized an event called Design Smash 3D. It was a competition involving 8 teams of designers/makers working together with 8 teams of 3d-printer owners/builders.
This was the topic of the contest:
Explain to your grannies the wonders of 3d printing
Design an object to show your grannies what does the new industrial revolution mean and that Dmail catalogues are old stuff! 3Dprinting technology is not only a method to produce objects in an authomatic way, it’s a tool allowing more and more people to create objects not manufacturable in other ways with the same details, and with the highest level of personalization
Create an object exemplifying this features and containing all the coolness of 3d printing. You can present a new object but also give new functionality to an everyday object.
The results of the competitions are published on our Thingiverse page.
And here are the first three winners:
Team: Jambro – Filippo Mambretti and Jennifer Carew

Mino is a family feet for walking sticks, a kind of “third shoe”, can give new performance to an everyday object.
