MyMiniFactory and ESSO Announce 3D Printing Design Challenge

MyMiniFactory is back with another design challenge and incredible prizes. This time, they have partnered up with petroleum giant ESSO, who have sponsored and conceived the brief for MyMiniFactory’s latest design challenge. This is the first time Esso and MyMiniFactory have decided to collaborate on a design challenge, hoping the community will surprise and impress them with this fun and ecological task.

In this upcycling-themed challenge, participants must find new uses for the iconic 250ml can, utilizing 3D printing. The winner will have a chance to win a BCN3D Sigmax 3D printer worth over $5000 and a there is also a STARTT 3D printer for the runner up!

Christophe Fay, Esso EAME Marketing Communications Manager, said “We sell a lot of drinks at Esso stations, we also believe at Esso that every details matters and that if upcycling can help reuse cans for the benefit of our customer, we should help.” He adds, “Objects proposed could end up being offered to our customers in a promotion.”, which is the first time such an opportunity has been on the table for the MyMiniFactory community.

The winner of this upcycling challenge will receive a BCN3D Sigmax worth over $5000. BCN3D also sponsored MyMiniFactory’s halloween competition in partnership with Autosdesk’s tinkercad awarding MyMiniFactory community member Clockspring with their Sigma 3D Printer.

BCN3D’s Sigmax is the larger model of the existing Sigma desktop 3D printer with some additional features such as two independent heads capable of simultaneous dual extrusion and duplicate printing.

The competition is open to enter until the 14th of February 2018, and is only open to residents of Australia, Europe and USA who are over the age of 18.
