SpaceClaim Engineer

GrabCAD-SpaceClaim Contest Winners

SpaceClaim, the leading provider of flexible and affordable 3D for engineering design and manufacturing, and GrabCAD, a web destination for engineers to share their talent, expand knowledge, and work with tools and features that make life better, today announced the winners of the SpaceClaim GrabCAD Challenge. For entries, we asked participants to start with GrabCAD’s collection of models or models from other sources to improve someone else’s design using SpaceClaim Engineer.

Review all the entries on the GrabCAD site: http://grabcad.com/challenges/spaceclaim-challenge/entries

    The Winners

    First Place

    Formulamix

    Flaviano Crespi combined many models from the GrabCAD site to create a new automobile concept based on hang glider aerodynamics. The judges deemed this entry to be original and have a high level of detail and modeling complexity. The resulting “formula-mix” design is a good example of how easily new designs can be created from disparate concepts, explored, and evaluated using SpaceClaim. Flaviano is the winner of $3,000 plus a perpetual license of SpaceClaim Engineer. For more details, see the actual entry on the GrabCAD site: http://grabcad.com/library/formula-mix.

    “SpaceClaim is fantastic,” said Mr. Crespi, “and it was fun to use and I did all this work with no training or technical assistance because SpaceClaim is so intuitive to use. This work would have taken me four times longer using any of the traditional CAD packages and I’m thrilled that I will be able to continue to use SpaceClaim for product design work,” he added.


    Second Place

    Bykover

    Victor Terán created a portable pullover rain guard for use when biking in an unexpected rain storm. By re-using supporting models (bike parts, human figure, plus models created with other modeling tools) along with SpaceClaim’s direct editing and creation capabilities, Victor was able to quickly illustrate his original concept. The judges liked his use of SpaceClaim as an early 3D prototyping tool that helped turn his initial concept sketches into 3D models and renderings. Victor is the winner of $2,000 plus a perpetual license of SpaceClaim Engineer. For more details, see the actual entry on the GrabCAD site: http://grabcad.com/library/bykover--1


    Third Place


    Modified mendel huxleyIsmail H. Sanliturk submitted a design for a modified RepRap DIY 3D printer. RepRap printers are designed to be able to print most of their own components. Without access to a 3D printer, however, Ismail wanted to redesign the RepRap so that it could be easily created on a 3-axis milling machine. SpaceClaim made this task easy as it afforded Ismail the flexibility to precisely measure and change any element of the design. The judges especially appreciated his use of SpaceClaim’s drawing capabilities to document the resulting design. Ismail is the winner of $1,000 plus a perpetual license of SpaceClaim Engineer.  For more details, see the actual entry on the GrabCAD site: http://grabcad.com/library/modified-mendel-huxley


    Fourth Place


    Super wooden trainRiccardo Gatti’s entry created a model of a toy train by referencing faceted STL data and then enhancing the model by adding elements from other GrabCAD designs http://grabcad.com/library/super_wooden_train). Riccardo will receive a SpaceClaim fleece and GrabCAD t-shirt.


    Fifth Place


    Halloween + bike lightBen Foster created a skull-shaped bike attachment with lights and a fog dispenser that was made entirely in SpaceClaim (http://grabcad.com/library/haloween-bike-light-optional-smoke-machine). Ben will receive a SpaceClaim fleece and a GrabCAD t-shirt.


    Sixth Place


    EtrikePaul Tripon started with an original motorbike and then modified it into a three-wheeled vehicle, replacing or modifying most parts while adding some fun styling (http://grabcad.com/library/etrike). Paul Tripon will receive a SpaceClaim fleece and a GrabCAD t-shirt.
