Home Fix-It Challenge

The Polar 3D Printer is a tool for making anything you can imagine, so why not make that perfect object you'd like to improve your space? Whether in function or aesthetic, every home has that one spot where you'd like to improve something, and this is your chance to make a custom solution to your problem!

In this challenge, Polar 3D is encouraging makers and students to create unique and awesome 3D printed solutions for your home. Maybe you'll make an organizer for everyone's "junk drawer", or a door stop for that door that always swings closed, or even a new part for a broken appliance you have! As long as you make it yourself, we're onboard!

Starting now until October 17th at 11:59PM, join us to create the home improvement you've always needed where you live. You can use any software that can produce .STL files to design your solution (see details below). Upload an .stl file & picture of the finished print, and/or timelapse video for submission. The goal here is to inspire users, students, and teachers to have fun and make something cool!

Your awesome home improvement will be judged by the Polar team. Honorable mentions will be judged and featured over the two weeks, with an overall winner & runners-up picked on October 18th! Have fun and get to printing!
