It's that time of year GrabCADrs! Design the second annual Golden Gear Award trophy for our annual celebration of all things awesome in the GrabCAD Community.
It's also your chance to nominate your favorites for recognition. Your fellow members produce and share astonishing work every day. Having insanely cool, well-crafted CAD models is what makes us tick.
You can download a PDF of the GrabCAD logo and a sample STL of a newer version of Grabby we are working on via the Download specifications button. This year we are letting you pick the material and size of your trophy print - just keep it under $100 per trophy. Include your material of choice, size, and estimated cost in your model description.

You must include:
- STL version
- One rendering showing off trophy in your chosen print material
- Unless stated we will use Sandstone as material
- Use any software you like to create!
- Include "2013" in the model somehow
You are encouraged to include:
- Custom material you want to use
- Size and cost of Shapeways print
- Fun colors such as GrabCADr Red (#DB2B22)
- Include "Golden Gear" somehow in the model
- Description that tells us why your trophy is one every GrabCADr would want to take home.
Easy to 3D print:
- One part
- Single color
- Hollow where possible to save materials
- Greater than 2mm wall thickness
- Scale to fit 10x10x10in
- Uniquely interesting to MechE's
- GrabCAD inside jokes are very welcome
- Something you can proudly display
Tip from @Stephen.Nyberg:
Full color sandstone prints by Shapeways requires color information like VRML (*.WRL) and you need to change the settings by going to options after you select the WRL file and change the version from VRML 1.0 to VRML 97.
