Model Mania is back and even the prize is fast this year. Test your SOLIDWORKS modelling skills against the best in the UK and you could win a Yawboard or SpaceMouse Compact.
We're running the competition online again this year and so we will be utilizing our Skills Assessment tool to gather the results. The test is simple, we will present you with a 2D drawing of a single component, you need to model the 3D Part as fast as you can in SOLIDWORKS whilst making sure it is accurate. Then just check the mass and enter it into the assessment tool.
The fastest correct time will win an Yawboard, runners up will receive a 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse compact, courtesy of 3Dconnexion.
