The winners of the Inventables 50 States 3D Carver Contest have officially been announced!

We selected one school from each of the 50 states (still waiting on you Delaware!) to receive a free 3D Carver! The schools selected ranged from K-12, high schools, community colleges, and universities. The schools were then able to choose between Inventables two 3D carving machines, the X-Carve or Carvey, as their grand prize.



The Inventables team was overwhelmed by the amount of thought, effort and care that these schools put into the three rounds of the contest.
