The search for the best SOLIDWORKS modeller is on! Is it you?

Monday February 22, 2010 at 5:20pm

February saw the launch of a CAD modelling competition to find the best Student SOLIDWORKS modeller. The competition is split into 4 categories;
• Automotive and Transportation
• Consumer Products
• Electronics
• General,
and the brief, is simply to submit an excellent SOLIDWORKS model (part or assembly), ideally, based on an existing product (since the competition is about modelling, not design). The competition is open to any age of University student in the UK. It is completely free to enter and there are a number of prizes. Some of which have been supplied by Solid Solutions Management, proud sponsors of this competition.

The models submitted will be judged on a variety of different areas;
•Complexity of the model (30%)
•Modelling techniques chosen (15%)
•Robustness of the modelling techniques used (20%)
•Accuracy and realism of the model (20%)
•Organisation of the feature tree (15%)

The panel of judges is made up of top industry professionals including our very own Managing Director, Alan Sampson.

•The grand prize is a 2 month, paid, summer placement at Innovate Product Design
•Contestants will be divided into four university year groups – one grand prize per group
•A great opportunity to showcase your abilities to employers across the world!
Competition deadline - 31st March 2010

"The Cadooku CAD competition aims to match CAD modelling talent with the design engineering industry. It will showcase the best work from the next generation of design engineers, so recruiters can identify employees of the future."

"Winners will be featured on and, a model exchange site visited by thousands of users per week, including top industry recruiters. The best talent can also look forward to press exposure in top industry magazines, including DEVELOP3D, Eureka, New Design and Design Week. All in all, the competition is a great opportunity and offers fantastic free publicity for your skills, so get modelling!"

Good luck!
