Think of any tool you always wanted to have but never found because nobody has made it yet. We want you to design it! Add the newly developed tool as a challenge entry with detailed description and user manual and get an oppurtunity to have your custom made tool 3D printed.
The tool can be useful in many different cases as well as custom made for very specific use in photography, electronics, aerospace, etc.
The main criteria is that it has to be 3D printed from the following material:
If you feel comfortable the material properties are enough in purposes of tool performance you are ready to go.
We would also recommend you to upload the model to shapeways.com to check if the model is 3D printable.
