Challenge Accepted Game -- What do you want IVI to print? You name it, we print it

Dear IVIers,

As we are working intensely to improve IVI’s structural design, software & hardware and get it ready for production as soon as possible, we are also running lots of printing tests on IVI.

To fully test IVI’s capabilities and to help us better understand what you want to use IVI for, we invite all of you to join our “Challenge Accepted” Game and get the chance to win a FREE IVI 3D Printer’s 3D Scanner Module.

Time: July 1 – August 31, 2019
Frequency: Once a week, 9 weeks in total
Eligible participants: All IVI’s Kickstarter backers

How it works

  1. Each Monday, IVI team will announce the filament to be tested for the week in IVI 3D Printer Forum.
  2. Every Kickstarter backer is welcome to let us know what model you want us to print by replying below our topic.
  3. Every Kickstarter backer is allowed to vote for the model that you like by liking the specific reply.
  4. The voting ends on every Wednesday night and IVI team will select one from the top 3 most liked models.
  5. IVI team will print the one model selected and then share the prints by the end of the week.
  6. When the Game ends on August 31, 2019, there will be three backers whose shared models are selected, printed and the likes of the prints rank in the top 3 will win a free 3D Scanner Module each.

What you need to do

  1. Share with us the model you want IVI to print by replying below our topic before every Wednesday.
    • The model should not be too big and should be able to be printed within 12 hours with the 0.3 mm nozzle.
    • A picture of the model and a link to download the STL file should be included in the reply.
    • If the shared model is not designed by you, please make sure you get the permission of the model creator to share in public. Name or page link of the creator should be included in the reply.
      For example:
      I want IVI to print this model by “name of the creator” at “creator’s page link” + “model picture”. The model can be downloaded from the “STL file link”.
  2. Vote for the model that you like by liking that reply before every Wednesday.


  1. By sharing the model with us, you grant us the right to use it. IVI will not accept any complaints about the use of the shared model.
  2. IVI reserves the right to disqualify participants if there is any violation of the rules and regulations.
  3. IVI reserves the right to cancel or modify this Game at any time.
  4. Due to the R&D development time & production lead time, the shipping date of the 3D Scanner Module will be announced at a later time.

Note: Instead of replying below this topic, please share your model below the topic of each week respectively.


I’d be interested to see how the IVI handles the overhang on this Tree Model since the tree relies on the overhang sagging to make it look like a tree…


I want IVI to print the Tiger H1 model by TigerAce1945. His tank collections can be found on Thingiverse here: https://www.thingiverse.com/TigerAce1945/about; this specific one is found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2060989tiger

I’m a big fan of historical miniatures, and would love to see what sort of quality IVI can bring on these.


I want IVI to print this model GRUT. The model can be downloaded from the https://3dtoday.ru/3d-models/art/sculptures/malysh_grut_sidya_/
I wonder how IVI prints the structure of the model.


I want IVI to print this model by Maker’s Muse at https://gumroad.com/makersmuse

The model can be downloaded from the https://gumroad.com/l/wLcbJ


I want IVI to print and assemble Clock (Dual Ulysse Escapement) by Ed B (or any of his tourbilon model).
They require additional non-printable materials though, so not sure if that disqualifies this entry :laughing:
It’s a good model to showcase IVI’s precision and print accuracy


This is a great idea. I’d like to see some moving gears from a single print rather than an assembly like…8739b5ee5078e98075f7d7e94dcbff79_preview_featured
I want IVI to print this model by kasinatorhh at https://www.thingiverse.com/kasinatorhh. The model can be downloaded from the “https://www.thingiverse.com/download:6381216”.


I want IVI to print (the spool of) this model by gmlewis at https://github.com/gmlewis/go-gerber/tree/master/examples/bifilar-electromagnet. The model can be downloaded from the STL file link:
I tried printing it on my Ender 3 with PLA but it was not strong enough so I sent it to Shapeways to print in their “strong plastic”. It would be nice to see how IVI does and what type of filament is best to use for strength.

Hi All… I would like to challenge IVI to print/engrave/carve the Marvel Calendar found in Thingiverse. It would be great to see how it can handle the details shown in this model.



They had already printed this on one of their update. I think it was abs ?! Can’t remember.

I’d want it to print this chomper, this’d look awesome!

I would like to see how well IVI handles ball joints and multi-part objects where the objects are printed inside of each other.

This Articulated Cuttlefish by 3DCentralVA should show this nicely, although there are many other models that could also be used.


I want IVI to print this model by Revali1 at https://www.thingiverse.com/Revali1/designs. The model can be downloaded from the “https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3689428”.

I’d like IVI to print this model. While I am a fan of dragons, I haven’t printed too many because they don’t always turn out the best. The spines tend to a bit of an issue. I’d like to see the best representation of something that has grace and strength to show it’s capability.

It can be found:
Gold Dragon
from mz4250


I want IVI to print the Toothpaste Tube Squeezer:


Would like to see this highly detailed dragon printed. These require a very accurate printer to print. Even the scales of the dragon are visible in the model :smiley:
You can find it here on Thingiverse, designed by KerberosFI : https://www.thingiverse.com/make:670332


since you guys tested my oribital gear already right before the kickstarter was over, here is my next challenge for you guys, simple test that’s going to be fairly difficult to print successfully

This actually seems pretty ambitious. Would love to see this work on IVI.
