Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock… Xmas is just round the corner. Have you already prepared your Xmas presents?
This winter Desall comes into your help, with our brand new 3D print your Xmas v2! Design your gift and we’ll print it out for you!

Company description

Desall is a crowdsourcing platform that, through design contests, connects companies and private clients with a worldwide community of creative talents.

What we are looking for

Moved by the heart touching efforts dear old Santa makes every year, we decided to give him support endeavoring into one mission up to the talent of his most devoted elves. In fact, we are going to collect all your proposals for a 3D printed gift and you will select four of them to be 3D printed and delivered directly to your home as kind courtesy of ProtoMaker .

Think of an object that may be just right for this Xmas: a gadget, a jewel, a toy, an accessory, whatever… just be creative and practical!

Before submitting, consider the following tips and constraints:
- If it’s the first time you make a model for 3D printing, we suggest you to read some guidelines available on-line that can help you to get started (know more about the “technology”: and the "workflow” cf. Material Files);

- Maximum volume : 150mm width x 150mm length x 100mm height;
- Additional tips : avoid unnecessary overhung sections and split complicated or too big objects into multiple parts. The simplest solution is often the best solution!
- DO NOT submit your 3D files by now , but add just 4/5 good renderings. Only the winners will later be asked to send the original 3D files. (Provided that all of you must have them!)

Once you’ve done the upload, share your projects worldwide through Facebook and Twitter and call all your friends to vote for your project on Desall (by pressing the VOTE DESIGN button) AND to like your project through the Facebook like button from the design page on

Let’s come to the awards! This year we’re going to acknowledge both the Community Vote and the Facebook likes, as follows:
Santa’s choice and Rudolph nose will be awarded to the most voted designs
Elf Hat and Santa’s sleigh will be awarded to the most liked designs

In case of a tie, or if the same project wins more than one award, the final decision rests with Desall.

All the winners will received one 3D printed copy of their own object (shipping is included).
1. Santa’s choice - for the most voted project on Desall
2. Rudolph nose - for the second most voted project on Desall
3. Elf hat - for the most liked project on Desall (through Facebook like) (1)
4. Santa’s sleigh - for the second most liked project on Desall (through Facebook like) (1)

(1) The likes submitted from the design page and those submitted from the gallery page will be summed up.

So unleash your creativity and make this Xmas the most creative ever!

Good luck and enjoy the holidays (if any!) :)
