And the Winners are…

November 4th, 2013

GROWit held its 3rd Annual Additive Pinewood Derby on September 27th in celebration of GROWit’s 6-Year Anniversary. Eleven participants designed and printed custom parts to add to the standard Pinewood Derby car base. The idea was to challenge the traditional idea of a Pinewood Derby car as well as get the creative juices flowing in some of our staff and partners.

Cars were judged in a variety of categories. In order to qualify and participate in the race, at least one 3D technology needed to be utilized. Points were awarded by the judges in the following categories:

  • Fastest Single Run
  • Creativity
  • Most Additive Parts Used
  • Most Variety of Technologies Used
  • Best look

The top 3 cars were awarded with gifts and of course, bragging rights!

Here were the top 3 winners based on the categories above:

In 3rd Place – Jason Brown blew everyone away with his mini skateboard car, inspired by his favorite childhood toy – the Tech Deck. This mini skateboard was printed in PLS in GROWit’s omniGRO material, then sanded, painted and lined with actual skateboard grip tape. The greatest part about this car was the attached GoPro to the top of the board – capturing all of his defendants as he passed the finish line.

In 2nd Place – Ben Folwell took us all by storm with The Green Hornet.

Printed in Polyjet VeroTranslucent then dyed a mean shade of green. This car was not only aesthetically pleasing, but equally fast on the track.


The 1st place winner – Cameron Williams –  incorporated a PLS rilGRO shell with metal rods and screws, transforming his Nokia Lumia 920 phone case into a fully functional pinewood car.


This year was such a success that we are already brainstorming and designing for next year’s derby! We can’t wait to see what kind of creativity shows up on the track!
