The MakerBot Modio Challenge is now over and the winning entries have been announced on Thingiverse. The first prize, winning an iPhone 6 Plus smartphone, goes for a Modio Lamp, really an interesting idea, the second place goes for Jeff: The World’d Most Powerful Centaur and the third place goes to Omnis Terra: Guardian of the Land of Modioworld. If you have missed the opportunity to take part in the Modio challenge you can now participate in the new MakerBot Thingiverse FirstBuild Icebox Challenge that is accepting submissions until November 23rd. The prizes here are also interesting, as you have the chance for winning a big MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D printer, the new mini one or some filament spools for your future 3D printer projects.

To celebrate the release of Modio, the iPad app that lets you design and customize your own characters for 3D printing, for the iPhone MakerBot has partnered with Modio to present the MakerBot Modio Challenge. For the challenge, they want you to remix and reimagine Modio designs. Build, modify, invent, paint – anything goes!

Download source files from the Modio app and upload modified versions to Thingiverse with the tag #ModioChallenge before Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 11:59PM EST. Entries must be tagged with hashtag ModioChallenge to be considered and will be judged by a panel of MakerBot and Modio employees on creativity and printability. Android users can also participate by signing up for the Android beta.

First prize is an iPhone 6 Plus, yes the one that bends a lot, unless you print a nice and study case for it. Three winners will receive spools of MakerBot Filament (Three spools for first place, two for second, and one for third) and have their designs featured on Thingiverse.
