Launch of the 9th annual TraceParts competition

CAD designers are invited to reproduce a 3D character, spaceship or other cult object related to a sci-fi movie
(PresseBox) (Saint-Romain, France, ) Protolabs, a leading manufacturer for custom prototypes, is teaming up with TraceParts, a world-leading supplier of 3D digital content, to organize the ninth edition of a competition for CAD designers using the TracePartsOnline.net platform.

This year, competitors will need to express their creative streak on the theme of sci-fi movies! Using as many of the freely-available components on TracePartsOnline.net as possible, they will have to create their most beautiful design with the CAD software or image retouching program of their choice.

Entrants are free to reproduce a 3D character, location, machine or any other cult object related to a sci-fi movie.

Participants must submit their entries before December 18, 2015, to 3dcontest@traceparts.com. The file size must not exceed 1 MB.

All designs entered into the competition by participants will be judged by the TraceParts team and will be uploaded to the TraceParts.com website. The winner’s name will be revealed on December 24, 2015.

The winner will receive the very latest Star Wars BB-8 Sphero Droid.

All 3D files available on TracePartsOnline.net are compatible with the most popular native CAD applications, such as SOLIDWORKS, and T-FLEX.

Most neutral CAD formats are also supported, such as DWG, DXF, IGES, STEP, SAT, JT, STL and VRML, as well as many others, including STL, the standard CAD file format for 3D printing.

May the 3D force be with you!
