Earlier this summer we ran a competition for anyone to enter called “Save The 3D Bees“. To enter, all you had to do was design a “thing” that could be used to help our buzzy little friends out. This could have been a 3D printed planter, a bee hotel, or a simple way to give them sugar water to keep them strong! Whatever your idea was, we wanted to see it!

We’re now happy to announce the winner of the competition is Twitter user @KateCoo28415581. Heidi designed an awesome entry of a ‘bee hotel’ with room for bees to relax in and little cup holders for sugar water. This was such a thoughtful idea and we loved that you made it from recycled items! Congratulations for winning this competition Heidi, we’ll be in contact soon to sort out your new Ultimaker Original 3D printer and a copy of your model ready to 3D Print! The model will also be available for everyone to download and make their own!

Don’t worry if you didn’t win, there will be plenty more chances in the future for you to enter! Just make sure you stay subscribed to our newsletter and follow us on social media for more updates!
