We invited the 3D printing community to show off their engineering skills and design the strongest 3D printed hook to compete in a head to head tensile strength battle.
During this single-elimination tournament, two hooks will be linked together and pulled apart until one of them breaks or let go. From the qualifiers to the final, only one will survive! However, the top 3 hooks will all be rewarded with prizes.
We have received entries from 27 countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Mexico, Netherlands, Philippines, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United States, Ukraine, United Kingdom.
