The website Pinshape is hosting a 3D printed men’s fashion contest that continues until 11 January 2015. Designers are encouraged to submit their ideas for all things 3D-printed relating to men’s fashion, such as cuff links, money clips, eye glasses, belt buckles, rings, and bow ties. A designer can submit as many designs as he or she likes as long as they meet the contest guidelines, which state that entries aren’t weapons-related or sexually explicit, don’t promote hatred or violate third party rights, and are 3D-printable.
