Last month we ran the story of 3D print sharing site MyMiniFactory and their Monster Hunter Generations design contest.

With prizes including an expensive 3D printer and various Monster Hunter merchandise, there was soon an influx of quality designs based on the comically huge weapons from the game.

The contest is closing today and the winners will be announced on March 7th. While we wait, we thought it would be nice to take a look at what we think are the best submissions and likely winners.

There were a lot of great entries to pick from and, regardless of who and what wins in March, all the files are free to download right now.

Click either the name of the design or the picture itself to be taken to those free files. Alternatively, click on the name of the uploader to go to their user page where you can read more about them and the other designs they’ve made.
