MOTM April 2017 - Contest Thread

Welcome to the first round of the public Model of the Month contest!

This will be our first run at reviving the Model of the Week contest that died out some time last year. As this is no longer organized by Onshape directly (for the time being) the format is changed slightly. The main difference is that this will be held on a monthly rather than weekly basis.

If possible, I would ask that this thread be made a sticky so that it can be found easily.

How to participate:

  • The contest is open to any user, your level of subscription does not matter
  • The age of the file does not matter. You are free to enter any existing project you may have, there is no need to create something specifically for the contest.
  • Despite the name of the contest being "model" of the month, things like Feature Scripts are also acceptable entries.
  • Simply importing a model from another source into Onshape does not count! It must be clearly evident that Onshape was used to create or manipulate the document that you are entering!
  • To enter, reply in this thread. Your post should include the following:
  1. A link to the document you wish to enter. Be sure to make your document public!
  2. A screenshot of the document. Please only one screenshot per entry.
  3. A brief description of the project to help other users understand what complexities or difficulties may have been involved.

  • All users, whether you enter the contest yourself or not, may vote on submissions.
  • Use the built-in forum features to "Vote Up" entries of your choosing. Please refrain from using "Vote Down" as it goes against the spirit of the contest.
  • At the end of the month the entry (or entries) with the highest number of "upvotes" will be declared winner
  • A new thread will be created eventually to archive monthly winners
  • Please only post in this thread with entries! For any feedback, questions, or discussion, please post in this thread:

  • Since this contest is not organized by Onshape, no forum badges will be given out, sorry.
  • An Amazon gift card of a yet-to-be-determined value will be awarded to the winner.
  • Bragging rights  B)

This contest is open for entries immediately, and will remain open until April 29th. Voting on entries may begin immediately, as well. The winner will be announced on the 30th, so be sure to get all of your entries and votes in before then!
