Winner Time! Shapeways Mini House Contest Winners Announced

Earlier this year Shapeways hosted a 3D Printed Miniature House Contest to demonstrate how 3D printing is the perfect tool for creating unique pieces for your miniature house or display. The challenge was to show off what you've made or purchased with Shapeways and enter for a chance to win printing credit. Contestants submitted a picture of their miniature house or roombox display decked out with 3D printed furniture and decor items, and described which items were 3D printed and how they were finished. Please check out all of the entries and descriptions posted here. There were so many amazing entires the judges had their work cut out deciding. The final votes came down to a difference of 1 point for third place. It was really close! Without further ado the winners are...

Gold $125 credit: Otterine
Silver $75 credit: Alice Miniatures
Bronze $50 credit: Paper Doll Miniatures

Huge thanks to everyone who entered!! You made it really difficult to pick only three top prizes. The fourth prize is a luck of the draw prize. One lucky winner was randomly selected from all entries after the top three prizes had been awarded and will receive $25 of Shapeways 3D printing credit.
