'Advent Competition' Winner Announced
Over the Christmas period, we created our very own advent calendar, featuring 25 things you didn't know we did. Behind each door, there was an interesting fact about Croft Filters. To make things even more exciting, we launched a competition to win a metal 3D printed item of your choice. In order to win, the question "Who invented Dixon Rings?" had to be answered correctly.
The answer was – of course – Olaf George Dixon. We had a great response and named Sophie Carroll, a blogger from London our competition winner after pulling her name from a hat. Sophie decided to have a 3D printed Japanese dragon made as she has a particular interest in the culture, running a personal blog and Facebook page packed with facts on the country!
Sophie told us: "What a great start to my year! I'm over the moon that I won and the Dragon looks fantastic. I loved the advent calendar too – it had so many interesting facts I looked forward to opening it each day. "It's amazing what can be made using 3D printing, especially when made out of stainless steel as its added strength means the possibilities are endless. The detail in the Dragon – whom I have decided to name George, after George R R Martin – is just fantastic!"
Neil Burns, Director at Croft said "We decided to create the advent calendar to inform our existing and potential customers on the work we do at Croft, and just how much we have to offer. "We're glad Sophie likes her Dragon design, it was really interesting to use our AM technology to create something a bit different. Watch this space for future competitions!"
