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!
