500 Group Supercar Body Challenge 2013

Medium

Yes it’s finally here, our follow up to the immensely popular 500 Group and GrabCAD supercar body Challenge. Here is your opportunity to contribute to the design of a real, working supercar that is fast approaching production, get yourself noticed, see your design come to life and possibly join our team as others have done.

This is the same car that conquered Nurburgring last year with Le Mans driver Tim Schrick piloting. It's not surprising with 692hp and weighing only 2200lbs.

Watch the video.

The next body is scheduled to be on our 1000+hp twin turbo roadster that is headed back to Nurburgring.

This is your opportunity to get on the world stage, kickstart your automotive design career and win $4000 in total prizes. The top 20 finalists selected by our judging panel will then be assembled for a worldwide vote for best body.

Please note there is no limit on the number of different bodies you can enter, if you see several solutions or are inspired to try different ideas, GO FOR IT and let the world see you work.

Design details


To be eligible you must enter both parts of the contest:

1. Body street
2. Body track

BODY STREET
1. It’s a street super car! It should be aggressive without being absurd, it’s should look fast without looking like it escaped a racetrack.
2. Above all else it must be beautiful with timeless appeal to everyone of any age or gender.
3. Supercars are a celebration for everyone to enjoy not just the lucky few who get to own them bear that in mind when critiquing your own work, will non-car people and non-racers love your design?
4. Reminder, don’t overdo the styling for this design, you have that opportunity in #2 below.

BODY TRACK
• Here is a chance to go a little crazy, take your #1 design and heavily modify it for the track, this one is for the car guys and hardcore racers
• Shape: examples, reduce the 4” ride height to 2”, maybe put some helmet bumps on the roof, maybe an LMP fin to replace your motor canopy or a giant wings out back, or big air scoops top and side, let you imagination go wild.
• Graphics: color and graphics make a car, maybe a body wrap with giant graphics or some awesome color combos.

DESIGN GUIDELINES
• Make use of as many uninterrupted ‘belt’ lines from front to back as makes sense.
• Make use of ‘cross lines’ the lines of a car should never dead-end (i.e. they should run into other lines.)
• Work from 1st principles, do you have a justification for every curve and feature?
• Is your design timeless? Avoid styling elements that are popular now as they will be short lived.
• Styling cues associated with other manufactures are prohibited, create a signature look.
• The ‘ribbons’ you see over the wheels and windscreen are suggestions for body terminations, you do not have to use them

TECHNICAL GUIDELINES
• Pay attention to avoiding blind spots in the rear and ¾ rear views. (not relevant for body #2)
• This is a closed wheel supercar design no motorcycle style fenders. (not relevant for body #2)
• Extra points if you successfully use the existing bumpers as the bumpers for your submission
• Fascia’s can be inserted into and under the front and rear bumpers
• Extra points if your lights fall within the front and rear bumper box areas.
• This car is a convertible be sure to make both couple and convertible versions.
• You may use our roof, build from it or create your own roof shape completely.
• Use the supplied door opening but you doors may open however you wish, scissor, traditional, gullwing, suicide etc
• Uses the chassis provided and use the existing glass canopy, wheels and brakes, no modification to the chassis are permitted with the exception of the roof.

AERODYNAMIC GUIDELINES
• Pay attention to aero these vehicles exceed 200mph.
• These engines consume massive volumes of air; make sure the radiators located in front of the rear wheels are very well fed.
• From the middle of the car back try to avoid angles greater than 18-20 degrees, this is the critical. angle beyond which air delaminates from the body and creates unnecessary drag at high speed.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
• Your submissions must include the graphic banner supplied on your renders.
• Minimally you must upload your solid model file and produce renders from different angles, show your car as a coupe and convertible and if you’ve done something special with the doors show it off. We also like to additionally see a white render from a couple of different angles to not be distracted by color.
• Size your renders for print 11x17 or A3 paper size,
• It is recommended you post up work in progress early, you will get extra points for this and you can solicit opinions from both us and the GrabCAD Community in the comments, below. It has been our experience that those entries that followed this path where the most successful.

Please post your questions in the comments section below and review past comments to make sure your question hasn’t already been asked.

Requirements

  • You must include:
    - Solid model CAD file.
    - STEP or IGS version.
    - Renders from different angles:
    ..........Car as a coupe and convertible.
    ..........Show off special features (i.e. gull wing doors.)
    ..........White render multiple angles.
    - Size your renders for print 11x17 or A3 paper size.

    A few questions:
    1. What is the scope of the project??, just body surface shaping or are you expecting a complete engineering solution, ie. attachment of bodywork to frame, fasteners etc. body support members etc??

    2. What is the budget of the build, what materials do we have to choose from?

    3. What is the recommeneded step file to use?? I recieve a "future version" error with the .prt files included

    Thanks-
    Jon

    Great Challenge Guys! I'm totally in.

    Question: For the head and tail lamps, do we have to use existing and homologated clusters from other car models or can we design our own? Do you suggest using traditional round head and tail lamps, as seen on many other low volume production supercars?

    Thank you,

    Pedro

    1 yes just body surfaces,
    2 the bodies will be available in GRP and carbon fiber in silver and black so pretty muc any shape is possible unlike steel or aluminum which has more constraints
    3 maybe a community member can help on this last one

    pedro
    welcome, no you don't have to use homologated you can make it up, we have been looking at LED string which are very powerful for day running, shape wise we can put generic homologated behing a shaped cover so there is a lot of freedom

    @ 5G, well, there is not really much freedom, the low temperature lamps can't avoid the fogging of the front glas shape, Audi was faced with this problem as they changed to high performance cold lamps.

    questions.

    First of all, congradulations on the vehicle. Insane little car. I love it.

    1.are we able to build off of the glass sheet roof?
    2.In the step file, the door area is only a half cut our from the chassis, we design our door around this?
    3.Extra points for designing lights within bumper structure? elaborate?
    4. Where is exhaust exit? center of vehicle?

    thanks!

    5G, Thanks for the answers. I assume that the target price range would be in the $150K range. This would help in defining the target buyer which obviously will impact the design and the styling.

    Arestide: you have design freedom on the lamps we have a great development team

    Jonathon: thanks! not so little btw this are big low wide cars with a lot of interior room, they are 'super' size :)
    1 re the roof, use it, modify it, delete it, make your own per the rules whatever you wish on this item
    2 the cut out is the door entry and has to be maintained, see the rules re opening directions
    3 solutions that keep the lights under the leading bumper edge are preferred but we respect the fact that designers will want to explore solutions above the bumper horizontal edge
    4 anywhere you like, but not the center that is where the transaxle is

    Rattan: i dont agree, beautiful is beautiful regardless of price howeverthe cars range from $69k to $149K and silver and black carbon bodies will be affordable

    Hello 5G,

    I would like to verify some things with the file downloaded for the contest:

    1. Any of the: "Model for contest 01 to 04.STEP" can be use as the base chassis? They are essentially the same chassis with different canopy designs correct?

    2. I'm using: "Model for contest01.STEP" in the "Final model" folder. Is that the correct file to use?

    3. Certain models has the 2 "winglets" in the rear. Are those mandatory?

    4. I'm cannot locate the supplied graphic banner.

    The Logo on the top of the windscreen in the supplied model, whose logo is that? Must it stay in the design? If so is there a correct colour for it and can it change size or location?

    The Wiper Ribbon in the supplied model, is that a guide for recommending that any windscreen wiper be located below that?

    I'm also curious the actual real life vehicle the competition is based on. What's the chassis material? Can bits of the chassis be exposed?

    Does it have a marque or model name?

    Is it planned for Europe only? Is it only ever going to be left hand drive? Drastically assymetical bodywork ok?

    Any kind of price range/ direct competitors?

    Where's the fuel tank/ any specific requirements for positioning a fuel cap?

    Ciao Flaviano welcome back
    there are only 2 radiator location, each in front of the rear wheels as indicated.
    the quantity of radiators depends on the configuration, always water but sometimes, oil, ac, and intercooler in addition. in any case they are always stacked in this location as indicated on the solid model, they require a LOT of air

    Marek, they are allowed

    @ 5G, in the TECHNICAL GUIDELINES you say the following:

    "• You may use our roof, build from it or create your own roof shape completely."

    From this it sounds like I can change all the glass, A-pillar shape and the top of the roof.

    "• Use the supplied door opening but you doors may open however you wish, scissor, traditional,

    gullwing, suicide etc."

    From this it sounds like I might have to keep the shape of the side glass and A-pillar.

    "• Uses the chassis provided and use the existing glass canopy, wheels and brakes, no

    modification to the chassis are permitted with the exception of the roof."

    Here in the same sentence you say that we can change the roof, but have to keep the existing glass

    canopy.

    I understand we need to keep the A-pillar and B-pillar roll hoops that are part of the chassis, but

    can we change:
    -The front window?
    -The A-pillar of the body and the body section that connects the two?
    -The side window?

    Could you please state very very clearly which areas of the roof and glass areas we can and cannot

    change.

    Just as a matter of interest: when I extend the rear of the top of the roof section you have

    supplied to us and try to keep it continuous, it fouls the B-pillar's roll hoop at the top. This is

    a problem for keeping a nice clean surface that doesn't interfere with the roll hoop.

    *Actually on reading the last sentence in the TECHNICAL GUIDELINES again, it actually sounds like the chassis may be change in the roof area, meaning the A- and B-pillar roll hoops can be changed, since those are the parts of the chassis that make up the roof area.

    ...this is very interesting question. Although I would presume that the intent is to leave the shape of the roof as it is, the quote from the guidelines states otherwise.

    I think someone may have already asked this, so forgive me if it's redundant. For the site developers is it possible to set up the entries page to display the most recent updated work first? Or maybe there's a couple tabs, like most recent update, most recent entered, etc....?
    Also, in our own portfolio, it would be nice to have a simple way to organize our portfolio images. That way we can upload our images and then organize them once there all there.
    Overall great site though,

    all
    the contest is barely 10 days old and we're blown away by the number of high quality entries
    post early and post frequently to get feedback and especially please take the time to give other contestants your frank feedback in both constructive criticism and compliment
    this collaborative design process is one of the great features of grabcad so lets take advantage of it

    Bear in mind that the system is designed to completely swap bodies in about a minute so MULTIPLE bodies are in our future and part of the core program, that means that if you create something really unique or show great talent we'll be making a note of your submission

    DOORS
    Your entry should use the supplied door openings per the rules to be considered, your opening should not be bigger or smaller, if you wish to add a minor curve to the straight edges or fillet the corners that's fine, but the opening must be used as is to be considered.
    This is especially true of the door opening by the front wheel area, this makes it much easier to get in and out of a low car, remember this is not a concept car its a disguised production chassis you are working on.
    We're aware that the opening around the wheel area creates additional design challenges this is part of the challenge. get your doors cut in early in the process to better see what design solution are available
    Great quality of entries we're very excited to see myriad solutions

    As previously noted the base price range for the vehicle will be $70K-$120K according to the hp/tonne scale relayed... My question would be what percentage of that would be allotted toward the production and installation of the body panels.

    This is a very important question as it sets the precedent for what materials and construction methods are used to produce different body panels. as you may be aware of, different materials have different characteristics.

    At that price range it puts your car in direct competition with component vehicles such as Noble, RCR, factory five and the like. To this point, what steps have been taken to achieve homologation? what sort of production numbers do you wish to achieve? will the vehicle need to meet safety standards for global sales or is it going to be marketed towards a selective market?

    It may be perceived as mischevious or smarty pants of me to bring these sorts of questions up. To me, Design is just like the game of Soccer "It is a simple game that is difficult to play simply"
    I like to have as much information as i feel is necessary. I would think you would appreciate someone is doing more for the end user than creating a pretty thing to look at. If it is truly capable of the performance numbers being advertised then certain precautions should be adhered to.

    I am looking forward to your response.

    Chris Williamson.

    One important question! I've reread all the requirements for this challenge. In the "Design Section" there is a mention of a solid model. Is this just a figure of speech or actual requirement? The real solid model means not just surfaces but their real thickness.

    everyone:
    for the worldwide vote that follows the contest, we'll ask the selected entries (about 20 total entries so you have good odds!) to do a render in a neutral color in addition to all the great render colors and scenes were seeing,
    right now we're considering silver carbon fiber as the neutral body color as that is one of the production finishes and shows a nice contrast with typically darker/black trim and accents.
    just a heads up as it can be a slightly more difficult to render, white is also being considered if the silver carbon fiber is too difficult

    @5G: The guidelines state, "Extra points if your lights fall within the front and rear bumper box areas." To keep the headlights inside the front bumper would violate most US headlight height laws. Is that okay? What does it mean to sit within the front and rear bumper box areas. Is above it okay? I realize this vehicle may not be sold in the US or maybe it can bypass it because it is a custom vehicle?

    Hi 5G, thanks for the comments on Phalanx.

    I've posted up a couple more renders. I must say, looking at them on my iPad, I see they are quite a bit darker and the colour more yellow compared to my workstation monitor. I don't currently have a colour calibrated monitor, so will have to double check the renders.

    Two questions, with the doors, is it viable to cut the side panels down to the ground? Much like the Laferrari and Mclaren P1 doors. It makes for better ingress with the aero out of the way.

    Also, I've gone with a very light silvery grey carbon fibre in the renders, is it too light?

    Anything else, please let me know.

    Thanks.

    I am still wondering. I see many entries that clearly use their own rear diffusor. As I understand the rules, we are supposed to use the rear diffusor shape that was supplied by you.

    I as probably many others, have found it hard to integrate that rear diffusor box into the overall design, but I managed to do it... So now I am wondering what will happen to the entries that have not, and use their own rear diffusor "solutions"?

    Beautiful challenge with absolutly awesome entries. It's been a while since I didn't follow a challenge and I must say I'm impressed and excited to see so much good works, very inspiring.

    Here are the entries that like best :

    Kanza (khan-zah) supercar : This is just a masterpiece. Awesome work in modelling, rendering and details. The track version is insane. Even if it doesn't fulfill all the requirements, that's the most beautiful work by far. I've got a crush ;)

    500G Razor (Street + Track) : very good entry, beautiful character lines, very edgy and definitely unique. The work generally is fulfilling the requirement and there was a lot of work on the opening parts, which add lots of details and interest in the car. There are some engineering in there ;)

    MNoseG500 : nice work, specially on the front nose and side panels. Very interesting and close to the requirements.

    "1000rs" Race version : awesome body work. Side could be worked a little more to have more clean surfaces, but the track version is great. Unique.

    500 Group CherAn Supercar Concept 01 : very cool design by Andrey, very compact and angry look. The only thing to do, in my opinion, is to lift up the rear wheel shoulder and the miror are a bit underworked, but that's detail...

    Raptor500 Supercar : one rare round design, which is timeless. Nice look.

    That are the ones that catch my mouse looking back the thumbnails :) There are plenty of other entries that worth the look ;)

    Lot of stuff to see. It's not easy choosing the bes, but the Nebrius is still my favorite: classy, simple and elegant....never liked hypercomplicated cars: it's like they're hiding something. Second place for the Kanz: it's a great car, but I've found it a bit anonymous and I don't understand why side intakes are placed so high

    No doubt, there are many well built and well constructed cars here.
    I believe you guys have many sleepless nights constructing and building those beasts in ur favourite CAD programs.
    ---
    I am also very impressed that those beast were built in just more than a month!
    I have impression, the cars here are built within first few sketch in very linear progress.
    ---
    Production cars development usually take 3-5 years and in this timeline, designers work together with engineering going thru the cycle : sketches - sleep overnight - review the sketches - going further what he think was too boring on last sketches - sleep overnight again - 1:1 tape drawing - build rough clay - sleep overnight - CAD - review again - and most of time back to sketches again and keep repeating the cycle until the balance is found.
    ---
    About design, some could say design is all about taste, but in my humble opinion, there are also perceivable quality in design, such as proportion, clarity, surface logic, visual ease, theme as whole, freshness, distance to existing cars and so forth...
    ---
    The reception of design quality need certain level of sensibility, which not only can be achieved by observing, but also by gaining actual personal experience of creating, and in most cases marketing here is very decisive to communicate the design to people with less sensibility of design.
    ---
    A good example is typography, only if one deal with typography in detail and layouts, he will develop sense of proportion, shape, curves, readability, character of the font and so on.. for those who dont work on letters for years, they would probably take the general opinion : comic sans is ugly, helvetica is cool, times news roman is classic.
    ---
    My point is, at the end of the day the jury gonna judge who will win depends on their purpose. but i think no one should be too bothered, cos our effort counts regardless the result.. the long exhausting struggle behind us are too worthy just to be used as tool to win. our effort should serve as a stepping stone for our development!
    ---
    Me myself, spent a whole pack of recycled a4 papers!, 10gigs of Rhino CAD files, almost 500 rendering and thousands of wacomsketches over rendering, 10 alternative of sidepod proportion, hundreds alternative version of wheelarc curves, countless cycles of "satisfied and after few hours not satisfied".. all that within a month!!

    chris i love you! this is exactly the plan to sell 'complete cars and components', we put all the legalities including the sealing of the cabin against the wind etc, lights, safety, structural all on the chassis so this is leaving the body completely free and simple inexpensive free to move air around the car and be beautiful

    we'll sell different bodies (the purpose of this and more challenges with GC) but also we want enthusiasts to make their own bodies as well, individuals who make fantastic bodies and wish to sell them can become an 'authorized body supplier' once we have inspected and tested a sample

    when we go to nring, contestants are welcome and chris if you seriously wish to take a car minus body shoot me a private note. we disguised the body download for the time bieng but the naked chassis are truly a thing of beauty

    It's a smart business idea, let the user express themselves. Its also increadably good from a PLM perspective, having one main chassis that you can add and take away the body from, which also is sustainable. Although CFRP isn't sustainable, with future technology it might get better. Especially if epoxy is developed further.

    @Niko : What you are explaining is really interesting, and the only good thing I would keep for this challenge : it kicks you (we all miss our pillow and bed, I think ;) !! Sure a standard car builder would make year to define what they call 'the perfect car'. Automotive designers, for some of them, are people who love spend hours, days and sometimes month to define the perfect body, the perfect lines and having discution like : should we put a 2.53 mm radius or 2.54 mm radius ? Yeah the 2.54 mm radius is definitely pure gold compared to 2.53... Well, design is a word where we can put all the things we wants to, there is no strict definition, each people has his own idea of 'design'.

    What I call 'Design', is the action of making something new, with serious brain juice for some aims : great product that have never been build and bring the customer a new toy / create a product that fulfill some miss in our life (services are also included in 'product') / in a more general way, I would say it is something we bring to the customer to represent the ideas of a team, a brand to helps people having a better life (so this is for capitalists ;).

    In this case, 500G design principles, as I understand and translate it, is to create a car where you can choose everything on it to fulfill one task : happy furious drivers ! There are not one body, but hundreds, if you like one body one day, a month later you could choose another one. So here is my question : Why spend so much time on 'drawing' a car ? It doesn't make sense in this strategy... I don't mean the body don't have to be clean but if a so called designed body catch your eye the first time, you sell ;)
    Team work is really important, and when we can read all the feedback given in each entry, final bodies may be better than the designer's first idea. In that way, private entries are a bit wired in my opinion, because you don't have feedback on your work.... it's an open community and challenge, so why hiding something ??

    I like the sentence that some innovative guy (don't remembre the man but the words) said about design : 'Design is too important to be only in the designer's hands', which sounds too me, design is a team work where each person has something special to bring.

    Anyway !! We all had fun, hard nights, killed some trees and make the polar bear less space on his ice :) but we are better now than a month ago ;)

    By the way : love idea of the showroom and driving day ;)

    Some of what you're saying about big companies is true, however, you will be mistaken to think that design takes so long. In fact, the lion share of development cycle is taken by engineering. There are so many other parts in a modern car being developed, what you see on the outside is just the tip of the iceberg.
    For example, a friend of mine was working on McLaren P1. Its design to A-class model cycle was about 3 months.

    Hi Guys!, i must say that i try hard to communicate something this days bus it was simply impossible because the hands don't listen...that bad it was... i find the contest after the christmas...:)...so i did my best....at one point i was about to quit but i read again the theme of contest and i knew that who wrote it really want to do a show stopper as a example of what you can do with that technical base. Is quite incredible for me that this business model will be a reality because it really bring democracy in the supercar world dominated by a few. The market offers many supercars with no emotional side and that kind of cars like Gumpert or Noble are impressive cars indeed but fail somehow to impress...and if we want or not the guys who buy a supercar(not a sporty car) want to make great impression...all this and for the street life benefit i would say... This is why i try to work and for the emotional side and repeat myself that 1000 hp is close to Bugatti league and near the newborn - hypercars, which means "kick as" everything no matter what, nothing is to less or impossible....and the most important idea should be that the value of the car should be more than the sum of elements.....@Niko..i understand you perfectly, is quite hard to make that surfacing, you must understand and use the software rules not fight against it, we are not sculptures here..this is why the cars begin to have thin edges and firmly curved surfaces... quite different rules than the old cars...look at digital world how evolve...
    Well...correct me if i'm wrong :)

    @NJoyDesign :
    im not trying to compare engineering and design, as i believe its important for both to work seamlessly alongside each other..
    .
    but in the case of this competition, the mechanical-technical "design/engineering" part is more or less done, and the one month time is reserved exclusively for the body work design/engineering... so our task was indeed to design/engineer the tip of iceberg.
    .
    that development on mclaren p1 for 3months was probably executed by not just one experienced designer/engineer on the field who already has one or more such cycles in designing/engineering car or supercar.. but most of us single-handedly took the first shot of design that came to our mind and send it straight away to surface engineering process, if i may say so.
    ---
    @BenjaminGarson :
    for the question why spend so many times on sketches
    .
    first of all, what i mean by sketches is not only paper sketches, but all kinds of idea visualization that leads to rethinking and refinement process (3d or 2d doesnt really matter)..
    .
    next, every profession needs to justify its right of importance and to be taken seriously. say it design or engineering or marketing or whatsoever.. to do so, each profession need to put and show the effort, refine and communicate the process.
    .
    in my opinion design has been something that widely perceived as fancy and superficial because of the misperception of design is something spontaneous and based solely on a persons talent.
    .
    just as the good engineering team i know that invest countless hours just to make the car door snapping sounds better and more elegant, who work alongside sounddesigner, it is also the effort designer can give, to show that opening wheel arc communicate cars weight visually better than too rounded wheelarc for example. or how to achieve harmonious daylight opening given the technical aspect that is provided..
    .
    so im not trying to question the countless hours of some guys spent here only engineering the surfaces to the max and less abt designing it, but i want to underline, that design can be something that instantly cross our mind, but our relentless work on rethinking and critical about anything (design/engineering) should gain high regards.
    .
    @GRABCAD : i find it difficult that the comments system only text-based. would it be possible to give pics based comments, or notation at the pics or rendering that uploaded. would come handy i guess. thanks.

    In general, the design / style work in big car builder is done in 3 steps :
    1. Open challenge : every design center around the world can work on a new design just making drawings. It's about 2 to 3 weeks timing.
    2. 3D model : once few entries are selected, designers can model their design and fine tune it. They have less than a month to do that and produce renderings : all the renderings are done in the exact same scene, same color, same camera angle... the aim is to judge only the design, not the way to present it (which is not our case here ;). It's less than a month. Only 2 or 3 are selected then for next step.
    3. Make a clay model in a month to judge the design on real proportion and real life, then select the winner.

    There are lots of work to do in a car ! The market is very mature and the designers are one of the very first craftmen to work on a project. In product design, it is not always the same process ;)

    @Niko
    Oh no, I wasn' trying to argue. I was only saying that when a big company makes a large volume production vehicle there is a lot more happening than just design, and that why it takes them so long (although, is there really a need to make a new model every 3-4 years?).
    I actually quite agree with everything you're saying, and especially about engineers/designers working together. Many designers have tendency to make things certain way just because they like it, and having an engineer assessing it early and saying "hey, why is that here? It's not going to work" would theoretically shorten development time, because less work would need to be redone.

    And this challenge was fantastic, because all of the hard work on the chassis was already done, and we just had to design the shell. But then again, look how many people went against the function to make certain things the way they liked it, rather than being both looking nice and being functional (air intake on Kanza, for example). There are many other examples too, but I won't say anymore ))

    But yeah, it's really impressive how much most managed to achieve in such a short time.

    I should stop here before I go complete gibberish... ))) Maybe I should get some proper sleep, finally...

    (sidedbar @ Matt & Njoy) I din't think I'd have to clarify about the location of the upper side vent but if you'd look at the engine layout ( ls7 twin turbo gm ) being used the air intake and intercooler sit much higher than the cooler provided in the dumbed down chassis provided for the contest. there for the air coming from the lower side inlet provide air for the cooler and the upper inlet provides air for the intake and intercooler nestled further in the engine bay. I'm not at all taking offense the crit but I feel they are fully justified being where they are.

    @5G, the prices sounds simply incredible for what is included(can you explain : prices will begin for cars in the $50's), you talk about everything in carbon-fibre?....is there tax for EU?(you manufacture in US?), and yes it is impressive because it can be sold with a lot more if the rest of equation is somehow a winning story, but that depends of who will be atracted to develop according his own vision.

    So I've awakened from my Ripvanwinkelesque slumber after the big push to finish. Looking at the entries, I'm stunned by the quality and variation. It would be interesting to me to see the breakdown between subdivsion modeling software, eg. maya, 3DS Max, etc vs more engineering focused NURBS type packages, like Solidworks, Fusion 360, Catia? Is there any real difference or preference for this competition 5G? Very much looking forward to seeing the top entries.
    Congrats to everyone none the less, and I can highly recommend that, regardless of outcomes, the effort put in will be payed back in experience for the next challenge. I know my efforts were recognized at work and resulted in a promotion, even though I don't work with CAD.

    @ Nic and all poly modelers, I currently use the Solidworks plugin nPower Tools which is almost a one for one translation for poly modeling within Solidworks. Years ago a plugin named Tsplines came out and was a horrible and clunky tool to use. nPower Tools allows the polymodel to be modeled and modified in realtime while still using the entire scope of tools within SW. nPower Tools is great for those comfortable with polymodeling interfaces and tools. I did not however us it for this competition just because I'm just quicker within Max's interface.

    EVERYONE:
    several of the judges will be reviewing this weekend and suggest you make sure your images are the ones you want to show, if there are repeats or very early bods that aren't good that don't show off your work in its best light then best to do a little pruning and remove, that's not too say work in progress sketches etc aren't valuable to show off your thinking because they can be very good
    I'm saying look through your submission and imagine the judge looking, will you keep their attention? is it professional? are you showing at least a couple 'body in white' so they can see your sculpt?
    i don't have an eta for final judging yet btw

    Jonny don't be so hard with yourself, most of models here are surface models(alias, rhino) and some are 3d max (game and animation oriented soft)....so your "solid" skills can be always used in development if you feel that the initial conception of surfaces is not you strong point :)

    @NJoyDesign: thanks, yeah i tried LIFO FIFO uploading and it doesn't work its rather random, i guess it depends on what get processed and uploaded first. You need to pretty much do it one by one to get the order right, which is really time consuming

    ming has uploaded 1 CAD models & has left 12 comments.
  • NJoyDesign

    NJoyDesign 9 months ago

    yeah, forgot to mention it))) It does tend to add them randomly when you upload a bunch, so u have to do it one by one. However, you don't need to wait for them to get processed, it may take forever. But as soon as it says that processing takes too long, the Publish button goes red and allows yoou to publish. So you do that and then move onto next one. I would advise to upload new ones first, in the order you like, and then delete all the preceding files.

    Wow!! Greg Thompson (Kanza) did not even make the list. Well, it's always a randomized guessing process in competitions like this, when the judges are not providing feedback. 5G's feedback was great. But we were all guessing as to what the five judges aesthetic tastes are. I am guessing that Greg's design and even more so, mine, were simply to conservative and traditional. Anyway, congrats to the winners!

    Read through the last 100 posts or so tonight.......just an awesome comp, congrats to all the finalists. let it be said, this competition was above and beyond the usual. It really was a whole other league. I'm just blown away by some of these designs. The talent in this competition was beyond words. It's like looking at a fine art gallery. I'm left wondering where did all you auto designers come from?.....and also, please don't compete in other challenges, I at least want to have a .001% chance of winning ::PPPP

    Seriously, this was one of the few competitions on GC where I was somewhat out of my league ) and I can put together some pretty mean CAD designs...... ), so that says something to the caliber of designers in this comp.

    Now I just need to disesct some of these surface models so I'll be ready next time ))). Greg T working with Poly plugin for SW.......that sounds frick'n dreamy!!! I NEED to try that out.
