The Golden Gear Trophy and Awards (2015)

And the winners are...

Thanks to everyone who participated! Golden Gears are always a special time of the year as it really shows who we are and what we can accomplish together. Picking the winners for this challenge was tough because you all showed us immense creativity and GrabCAD spirit. To pick the winner, we looked how all of the finalists represented the GrabCAD Community and created a 3D printable, eye catching trophy. Each and every one of the finalist designs would make a fantastic trophy that other member's would be proud to display.

GrabCad Golden Gear 2015

When we looked at Christiaan Sidell's design, it screamed ""Golden Gear Award"" to us. It incorporates technical elements that engineers and designers are familiar with like ball bearings and gears, and incorporates them into an artistic award that we think winners will be proud to display on their desk.

"DJ" GRAB by reda.djabri-2

"DJ" GRAB

We all really love the creativity that went into this design. It does a great job of embodying the GrabCAD spirit and definitely catches your eye. As another member said, music is a universal and unifying force, and given that we are a global community, a music themed award has a great message. The model does have a few printability issues that lose some of the great detail work that Reda put into the design, when printed.
