It is with immense pleasure that we announce that we are one of the winners of the Instructables 3D Printing Contest, having won a new 3D Printer! This contest was a partnership between Instructables and 3D Hubs, and it was the biggest 3D printing contest ever done, giving away 13 amazing printers!


We were participating with the 3D Printed DNA Lamp project which got over 31000 views and was featured on many technology websites like and even Hackaday!


Fortunately we were one of the lucky winners, having won a Think3dPrint3d Kossel Mini Kit Delta 3D printer:


So thank you Instructables, thank you 3D Hubs! And of course we would also like to thank everyone for the support, liking it, sharing it and voting for us, thanks to all of you, eLab Hackerspace will now have a new 3D printer! That’s the real power of community! Thank you! 🙂
