Instructables joins forces with 3D Hubs to bring 3D printing closer to the masses.

3D printing has never been closer: either winning one of 13 printers via our contest, or getting your DIY project instantly printed - just around the corner of your house!

Amsterdam - Instructables, one of most popular DIY platforms, is partnering up with 3D Hubs, the world's largest 3D printing network, to organize a 3D printing contest, launching today, to stimulate the creative maker community to experiment more with 3D printing.

Contestants get the chance to win one of 13 of the best 3D printers (chosen by the 3D Hubs community of 3D printer owners) and $2,000 print credit on 3D Hubs! So share your 3D models, projects with 3D printed parts, homemade 3D printers, and anything else three dimensional and win your own 3D printer.

Also, we’re happy to announce that a 3D Hubs print button will be published next to 3D models on Instructables, making it easier for the creative community to 3D print their favorite design. The button takes you straight to, making it super fast and easy to take your project from digital to physical. With 14,000 print locations in the world, your 3D object will be just a few clicks away!
