By Arnaud

Join the 2013 edition of the CATIA Design Contest! This year, you will enter a contest about Furniture Design as the chosen theme is: “Seating Experience – When Shape meets Function“. With this topic, we wanted to emphasize both the aesthetic and functional aspects of the seat.

Inspired by this theme? Grab your 3D CATIA app, imagine the seat of your dreams, and post it on the CATIA Creative Design Community. Don’t have CATIA and you’re a student? We’ll be happy to provide you with a one year free CATIA license.  :-)

The winner will receive the brand new WACOM Cintiq 13 HD!

Who will be the Project of the Year?

By Charles

Last week, 3DS Academy (Dassault Systèmes’ program serving the global academia community) launched a new challenge dubbed Project of the Year, available on both 3DS Academy website and Facebook.

This contest is open to every student and teacher using Dassault Systèmes’ solutions.

Every project, film or presentation made with CATIA, SolidWorks, SIMULIA Abaqus, 3DVIA Shape, etc., will have two chances to win:

  • One jury prize, granted upon selection by a Jury of professionals
  • One public prize, granted upon votes from Facebook fans

Rewarded projects will receive two iPad3 and many other great prizes!

To jump in the contest, students just have to post their best project in the 3DS Academy Projects Showroom, and it will be automatically reposted on the dedicated Facebook page where everyone can vote. They have nothing more to do, except having their friends to vote for their project ;)

So, if you’re a student or teacher, don’t wait anymore to jump in by letting us know about your best project done with any of our software. If you’re not, then you can still vote for your favorite project and share this contest with any potential candidate you’d know!

Have fun and enjoy! :)
