The Golden Gear Trophy and Awards (2015)

Medium

It's that time of year GrabCADrs! Design the fourth annual Golden Gear trophy for our year end celebration of all things awesome in the GrabCAD Community.

Why do we have the Golden Gear Awards?


Since 2012, this annual tradition (2012, 2013, 2014) has become a treasured way of recognizing our hardest working and most helpful GrabCADrs. We are grateful for every tutorial, comment, and CAD model submitted. Each one continues to make the Community a better place and change the way people make things. There are some contributions that go above and beyond. They stand out from the rest because they inspire and connect with engineers and designers on a whole other level. We want to celebrate the effort and generosity of the members who shared those beloved creations with our Community.

What is the Golden Gear Trophy?


Each year the GrabCAD Community submits ideas for a trophy to celebrate their favorite GrabCADrs. That trophy is printed and given to the winners of the Golden Gear Awards. Only a few get one, including the designer, so make sure it’s something you’d be proud to display on your desk!

Why should you create a design for this Challenge?


Who better to design a bit of physical product goodness than you? Your fellow members produce and share astonishing work every day. It's your chance to say thank you and nominate your favorite GrabCADrs for recognition. Include them in your entry and in the comments on this page.

This is also a chance to celebrate a year of your hard work by designing something just for fun. So, go have fun and create a trophy design!

Where can you find inspiration for your trophy design?

For inspiration, think about what the GrabCAD Community, engineering, and design mean to you, and keep in mind the values we embody as a community. With every action we take, we aspire to be:

Collaborative.
Creative.
Generous.
Professional.
Curious.

The procedure for the Golden Gear Trophy Challenge

Download a PDF of the GrabCAD logo and an STL of Grabby via the 'Download specifications' button on this page. We will be using Stratasys Direct to print the winning trophy.

1. Nominate your favorite engineers, tutorials, and models from 2015 in the comments of this Challenge.
2. Design a 3D-printable trophy for our 2015 Golden Gear Award winners.
3. Get an estimate from Sculpteo or Stratasys Direct and include the size, material and cost in your model description.
4. The 2015 Golden Gear winners are announced after the New Year and they receive the winning trophy design from this Challenge. The Challenge winner gets a trophy, too! This year's Golden Gear Awards will go to staff favorites and community picks in all kinds of categories: models, renderings, tutorials, and more!
5. Have a happy holiday season!

    Roger-Marie Couture, it varies based on the amount of material but I would say having it fit in about a 12 cm by 12 cm by 12 cm is a good starting point. The price estimators linked the procedure section above should help as well.

    For a trophy with elements in motion ... Is that the final proposal should contain only printed 3d elements or the designer may provide (at its expense possibly) the addition of certain parts like axles or metal still self-adhesive film in color?

    Roger-Marie Couture, the trophy design should be entirely 3D printable. Movement with axles etc. would definitely be cool, but would complicate things a bit from our end.

    We are excited and impressed by the awesome trophy designs so far! Just a reminder that the design needs to be 3D printable (so that we can easily have these made and sent out!) and ideally priced under $100 to make. I strongly recommend using a tool like http://www.sculpteo.com/en/pricing/price-and-delivery/#3d-printing-price-and-payment-methods to get a quick cost estimate and ensure that your design is 3D printable.

    Also a reminder, if you see a model in the Community (that was uploaded in 2015) that you feel deserves to win a Golden Gear for one of the categories listed above (ie. Top Collaborative model, Top Transportation model, etc.), let us know, here!

You all really impressed us with your creativity, hard work and GrabCAD spirit! Take a look and be sure to let us know which one is your favorite, here and by giving the model a like! We want a trophy that not only represents GrabCAD member achievements but also is something that you will proudly display. Next we'll be taking a look at how all of the finalists stack up in terms of creating a 3D printable trophy that captures the GrabCAD spirit.

    Hi Reda, as always I appreciate your passion! Saying that your design was on the expensive side does not diminish your design at all. It is very clever and creative. I did say that around $100 was ideal. That being said, we will be judging the finalists on creativity, 3D printability and GrabCAD spirit, first and foremost.

    I think, quality and result from 3D printing will determine the winner.

    hye REDA DJABRI, I like your DJ model but after review, your thickness model had some thickness issue in sculpteo. I hope real printing is different from analysis. my experience, normally 3d printing program give same result after printing. I will send that review in your model entry so you can see it.
    Just for fun :)))

    are you sure your 2nd stl jury will be accept after deadline? many member already download your last model before deadline , maybe had issue if jury accept your 2nd data .

    We are super excited to announce the winner of the Golden Gear Award Trophy Challenge as well as the winners (and honorable mentions) of the Golden Gear Awards themselves: https://grabcad.com/challenges/the-golden-gear-trophy-and-awards-2015/results. The GrabCAD Team is proud of everything that every one of our members accomplish. You all showed us immense creativity and GrabCAD spirit in both your trophy designs and your 2015 contributions. Ultimately to pick the trophy winner, we looked at how all of the finalists represented the GrabCAD Community and created a 3D printable, eye catching trophy. While only 1 trophy is going to be sent to the Golden Gear Winners, each and every one of the finalist designs would make a fantastic trophy that other member's would be proud to display.

    Hi Esmir Durakovic, we decided to do it a little differently this year with the winning trophy and 4 runner ups. We decided given that this challenge is about coming together as a community, that we didn't want to rank everyone. I think everyone did an awesome job, here. We picked the finalists because we loved all of the creative designs, and honestly would struggle to rank them all against each other.
