Every year at Christmas, the White House opens its doors to tens of thousands of visitors from around the country to tour the holiday decorations. This year, for the first time ever, the White House is inviting makers and innovators around the country to participate in the White House 3D-Printed Ornament Challenge.

The Instructables 3D Printed Ornament Design Challenge
Over 300 makers, artists, designers, engineers and students from all across America took part in the 2014 3D Printed Ornament Design Challenge. Ornaments were brought to life in the world class creative studio at Autodesk Pier 9 workshop.
Starting today, a selection of the winning designs can be seen in the East Wing of the White House as part of the holiday festivities as well as on the Smithsonian’s state of the art 3D data platform, 3d.si.edu.
After the holiday season, the ornaments will join a small collection of White House ornaments in the political history division of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
