How do I submit my KeyShot render? 

It’s easy! Just post your best render in the Solid Edge Design Spotlight thread in the Siemens Community! Other community users will have the ability to up-vote your submission, and the most popular posts will be among the first to make it to our next social media spotlight.  

When you submit your designs, please include some details about what the rendering depicts, how you managed to create it, as well as any challenges you faced during the design process and how you overcame them. If you’re pressed for time or just don’t have much information to share, even a of what the render is will suffice.
