#TBT to the first 19 editions of Model Mania and this year the competition is back for its 20th year at SOLIDWORKS World. For those not familiar, Model Mania is a design challenge where you are measured on both time and accuracy. It’s basically the SOLIDWORKS version of the Champions League, World Series, Top Gun, and the kumite rolled into one. If you think you’re ready to prove you’re the best around, make sure you take part for a chance to be crowned CAD champion.
Here’s how it works: First, you are first given a 2D drawing of a part. Your goal is to create that part in SOLIDWORKS as quickly and as accurately as possible. Seems simple, right? Well the second “Phase” is when things get really interesting. For Phase 2, you are given a modified version of that drawing; you can consider it an engineering change if you like. Your goal now, similar to before, is to make the design change as quickly and as accurately as possible and run a simulation to determine the factor of safety.
At SOLIDWORKS World, all of the entries are judged on accuracy first, and time second, because in the real world, it doesn’t matter how fast you get something done if it’s not right. Don’t miss your chance at immortality.
