>> Hi fellow makers,
>> I wanted to let everyone know about First Build.com It's a
>> website/community that features design competitions and great top prizes! I
>> just found out about it recently and worked out a design for a coffee

>> signed up for and I put lots of work into mine, so I feel like I've got a
>> pretty good chance at winning. Here's my entry:
>> https://firstbuild.com/sarthurkiss/city-roaster/
>> The top prize is a DLP SLA 3d printer (Autodesk Ember) so I'm pretty
>> excited. The only issue is that the "community votes" are considered when
>> the panel of experts select the winner and we are encouraged to reach out
>> for as many votes as possible.
>> If you've got some time in the next few days, I would really appreciate *a
>> vote for my design*. Shoot me an email to get in touch and I'd be glad
>> to *design and 3d print one free part for you* if I win the printer :)
>> Even if I don't win, I'm happy to return the favor with any CAD work you
>> may need in the future (don't be shy to reach out, I love working on new
>> project ideas).
>> The easist way to sign up and leave a vote is to scroll all the way to
>> the bottom, and click on "+ Comment". This will ask you to create an
>> account either with an email (no validation required) or with your Facebook
>> account. After that, you can scroll back up and vote on my design and
>> others if you like.
>> From the research I've done, First Build is backed by General Electric
>> and has a similar model as Local Motors. That is, collaborative
>> engineering/design and working under the Creative Commons license. So I
>> would encourage anyone to check out the current competitions while you're
>> at it (some of these would be great to collaborate on as a community).
>> Thanks everyone.
>> Cheers,
>>     Stephane
