Time-Lapse contest summer 2014 – CLOSED

Team colorFabb
  • COLORFABB TIME-LAPSE CONTEST – NOW CLOSED WINNERS WILL BE ANOUNCED 8th AUGUST

    Get your camera, laptop and 3d printer ready, it’s time for some time-lapse action! At colorFabb we like time-lapse videos a lot! We try to make at least 2 every week, printing great designs posted on thingiverse or youmagine. A time-lapse allows you to capture the magic of 3d printing one frame at a time, when played back at normal speed time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.

    You can 3d print anything you want, use any type of 3d printer and material. We’re looking for time-lapses that capture the beauty of 3d printing and do this in an exceptional and clever way.

    The winners
    We know that making a time-lapse is a lot of work and takes quite a bit of preparation, that’s why we’re rewarding the 1st place winner with a colorFabb Value Pack! The Value Pack retails for 400,- euro excl. tax and allows you to configure 16 spools of filament yourself! The Second place will be rewarded with 4 spools of material and the third gets to select 2 spools of material.

    1st – colorFabb Value Pack
    2nd – 4 spools of colorFabb 3d printing filament
    3rd – 2 spools of colorFabb 3d printing filament

    Most views – 2 spools of colorFabb 3d printing filament

    *this prize excludes bronzeFill

  • And the winners is :

    First of all we need to start this post with a big thank you to all participants of the Time-Lapse contest! Overall we’re impressed with the quality of the videos and the amount of care and attention the contenders have put into their work.

    All entries are listed in our youtube playlist which gives a great overview of the various types of 3d printers that are being used nowadays. We’ve seen the new Printrbot Metal but also a few cool RepRap’s and plug-and-play Makerbots and Ultimakers all revealing their print process in a time-lapse.

    The winners of the time-lapse contest have been reviewed by Ruud Rouleaux, Sander Strijbos and Gijs Houdijk of the colorFabb team. This wasn’t an easy task since there were so many great entries. The ingredient we were looking for are originality, complex 3d prints and a quality time-lapse video. We think the winners incorporated these elements best and therefore deserve to be the winners of the very first colorFabb challenge!

    The Winners


    1. Spiral of Life – colorFabb Summer 2014 Timelapse Challenge

    2. Busted – From scan to bust with ColorFabb

    3. colorFabb Football Match

    We also wanted to reward the time-lapse with the most youtube views. At the time of writing this post the most views, not including the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, is [xxx] by:

    Albert Einstein 3D printing using colorFabb filament by Printrbot Simple

    Once again thank you to all participants! We liked the first challenge so much that we will definitely be organizing another challenge. So expect more opportunities for winning free colorFabb 3d printing filament!

    Does it have to be a photography time lapse, or can it also be a sped up movie? I see both in the descriptions 😉

      Both is fine, just as long as it time appears to be lapsing and capture the process of 3d printing 🙂
