If you haven't heard of 3DTin, here is a brief explanation of what it is. 3DTin is a a clever and useful 3D modeling tool that runs in a browser. It is the simplest way of designing 3D Models. It has a web interface with mix of colors plus solid building block modeling system to make your designing experience full of fun.
Jayesh Salvi, the creator of 3DTin.com is a software engineer based in Mumbai, India. When 3Dtin appeared first time it could only be used for designing 3D models out of cubes. Salvi has actually had its development continue by adding more functionality and features like cylinders, wedge, cone, sphere etc.
Try it out in Firefox or Chrome. If you catch on to it quickly then congratulations you can now join the first 3DTin Challenge. 3DTin just announced their first competition after a long time waiting for completing their features to make the competition more interesting.
The prize they offer for the winner is a REAL prize - a brand new Makerbot 3D printer.
The trick is, to building 3D models as MANY as you can, and of course as creative as you can. Your 3D models will be rated by other users and 3DTin's revamped reputation system will determine your final scores based on peer ratings. So, that means, more models you make, more peer ratings you can earn. Your total score will be sum of points you receive for all your sketches.
Starting from today Feb.25, the contest will be ended on March 25, 2012. Top 3 scorers will get FREE lifetime 3DTin Premium membership, and the winner with highest score will get the grand prize - a Makerbot 3D printer.
Check out the detailed rules here.
