ShapeOko is an awesome new open hardware CNC/3D printer kit. We supported the development of the project as soon as hobbyist and Ponoko fan Edward Ford told us he was thinking about launching a Kickstarter campaign.
His Kickstarter project was over 700% funded, he spent months re-working the design, and now ShapeOko LLC is in business!
The ShapeOko kit has been completely sold out since it launched a few weeks ago, but Edward is giving us one to say thanks for the early support.
And we’re going to give it to one of you!
Place any 3D Printing or CNC Routing order with Ponoko, and you’ll be entered to WIN A FREE ShapeOko CNC/3D printer kit!
How to enter:
Place a 3D Printing or CNC Routing order with Ponoko between now and 9pm pacific time March 31, 2012.
One lucky winner will be chosen at random to win a mega-awesome standard ShapeOko kit worth $175. Winner will be announced on the blog in April.
Note: the ShapeOko kit comes with everything but the electronics. Suggested electronics packages are listed here.
