Much like our own community, Esso™ and their family of Synergy™ Technology Fuels put innovation and energy at the forefront of everything they do and everyone they serve. MyMiniFactory and Esso are proud to bring you an exclusive opportunity, taking the iconic 250ml can and re-purposing it for home, travel, garden, sports, science or anything that sparks your imagination.
The aluminium drink can is one of the most commonly consumed products in the world - almost 6,700 cans every second are thrown away.
In our latest design challenge we wanted to look at the potential for 3D printing to upcycle and re-invent this common item into something brand new.
We’re looking for designs that will grab the attention of the masses and for good reason - designs entered may be considered for use in future marketing initiatives post competition. This is the first time such an opportunity has been on the table for the 3D printing community, so it’s time to break out and show us what you’ve got!
The grand prize winner will receive the latest BCN3D Sigmax (worth over $5000). It is a powerhouse printer with two independent heads capable of simultaneous dual extrusion and duplicate printing. Additionally, we have a Startt printer to give away for the runner up
Make sure to download the designer resources here, as they will give you the correct dimensions for the can to get working on.
As always, if you have multiple entries for ESSO we want to see them all, so you can enter as many times as you wish!
Once your model has been uploaded to MyMiniFactory, remember to share it to Twitter/Facebook/Instagram with the hashtag #FuelingInnovation @MyMiniFactory @Esso_GB @bcn3dtech.
