MARCH 2016 CREATE T.I.M.E. CHALLENGE • Steampunk Design Challenge


e-NABLE France is the sponsor of the March CREATE T.I.M.E. Design challenge with a fun contest to get your imagination’s gears turning in hopes of having a variety of creative and fun “Steampunk” themed hands to present at Maker Faire Nantes in France on the 9th and 10th of July, 2016!


• Choose ANY of the e-NABLE hand or arm designs that you would like and let your imagination and creativity run wild!

• The devices can be printed at any size you choose, but we recommend that you print it out at a large enough size for an adult to use, to allow for a variety of hands to fit inside and include a hand bar for easier grip.

• Your design does not have to be created completely from 3D printed parts. Get creative but keep in mind that 3D printed objects are lighter weight!

• You may enter as many hands as you like!

• The Steampunk hands will be showcased at the e-NABLE France booth at Maker Faire Nantes, along with the name and information on the designer/team who created it.

• The public visiting the booth will vote on the spot for their favorite designs.

• At the end of the Maker Faire, votes will be tallied and the top 3 devices with the most votes, will be declared the winners!
