Did you know that your Dimension 3D printer could produce a 32-inch flat screen TV set? Well, it can if you win the contest that's part of the company's new "Most Valuable 3D Printer" awards program–or "MV3dP" for short. "The MV3dP Customer Awards program is an opportunity for Dimension users to tell their unique story about how their Dimension 3D Printer has saved the day or made their design team look good," says Jon Cobb, vice president of 3D printing for the Dimension Printing Group's parent company, Stratasys Inc. Winning customers will receive 20 cassettes of ABS material, which comes out roughly to a one-year supply. The engineer or design team that submits a winning entry will also receive a 32-inch flat screen television. Dimension users can get more information and submit their MV3dP entry by visiting the contest Web site. Submissions will be accepted through June 30th and awards will be announced in July.
