GrabCAD, meet Lagoa. Lagoa, meet GrabCAD. To celebrate our newly-minted friendship, we are challenging you to get your creative hat on. Take total design liberty to hack and tear apart this RC truck and then render the design that is the envy of all the neighborhood kids. Play nice, now!
1. Open your model in the GrabCAD Lagoa app.
Rotate and scale assembly parts without leaving your browser, then render.
2. Add curated assets from Lagoa artists and engineers.
You can use assets from Lagoa inside your scene by selecting “File”-”Import Asset” while in the app. Build your 3D scene with new assets and render.
3. Want to really step up your game? Modify the CAD file before you render.
Download the model to your desktop along with any GrabCAD Library models you want to use (with proper permission and attribution) and modify the RC Truck. Add a new part, change existing part or create your own assembly using your favorite 3D modeling tool. Import back into GrabCAD Workbench and 'Open with Lagoa' to render.
You will be judged by the experts at Lagoa and GrabCAD on the quality of your render and the toy experts at Mega Bloks on the fun factor.
You must include:
- One or more renderings of the RC truck model
- The RC truck CAD file (modified or original)
You are encouraged to include:
- A description of your model modifications
- The final render must be made in Lagoa
- No additional software may be used for the rendering component of the challenge
- The RC truck must be prominently featured in the final render
The winning design will be:
- Demonstrative of Lagoa’s capabilities
