Oh oh oh, the first snowflakes are falling and Christmas is coming. This year Desall wants to make it special: imagine and design your own present, we will 3D print it!

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

Inspired by the spirit of Christmas, we launched " 3D print your Xmas ", a craft design contest. The aim is to collect original gift solutions and to give you the opportunity to receive the present of your dreams, created with a 3D printer.

So give vent to your creativity and imagine a toy, a jewel or a gadget, something you need or a little project you have in your drawer and you would love to turn into a real thing.

Design it and submit it, after considering the following suggestions and constraints:
- If it’s the first time you make a model for 3D printing, we suggest you to read some online guides that can help you to get started (know more about the technology and the workflow );
- Maximum volume: 150mm width x 150mm length x 100mm height;
- Additional tips: avoid unnecessary overhang sections and split complicated or too big objects into multiple parts. The simplest solution is often the best solution!
- It would be better if you submit a 3D file, like .stl, .obj or .iges but detailed illustration will be accepted too.

Once you have upload it, share the design with your friends: the " Thumb Up Award “ will be awarded to the project that will receive the highest number of Likes on its page on, while the ” Heart Award " will be given to the most voted entry in the Community Vote phase. In case of Draw or if the same project will win both the prizes, the final decision rests with Desall.

Finally, the two winners will receive a special gift: their designs will be 3D printed by Desall!

Good luck and enjoy the holidays :)


Since we are an international Community, all texts provided with your uploads (abstract, description, tags, etc.) should be written in English.
