Design the first ever Golden Gear Award trophy for GrabCAD's annual community appreciation event!
Here at GrabCAD we value every engineer that puts in the time and effort to contribute to our community. We would like to start an annual tradition where we celebrate the best of the best in the GrabCAD community. Our engineers and designers produce and share astonishing work every day. Having the best content is what drives our product and is what makes us tick.
This year's Golden Gear Awards will go to staff picks and community picks in all kinds of categories: models, renderings, tutorials, and more!
We need a trophy to give our Golden Gear winners. Who better to design a bit of physical product awesomeness than you? Create something that you would want to take home because, after all, the winner of this Challenge will get a Golden Gear, too! Golden Gear Awards winners will be announced here on January 4 along with the Trophy Challenge winner.
