It gained a lot of interest from 3D modeling community. 211 3D printable models which are ready to become a tangible and shareable meme were made for this challenge.
Ryan Kittleson was announced the winner in the best meme 3D printable model category. He gets a Taz 3D printer amongst other prizes. 3D designer who called himself The Internets was awarded as an author of the best meme 3D printable portfolio.
