Working together with Design World magazine we have just launched a new “Generate Ideas” competition. The prize is a desktop 3D printer from BeeVeryCreative together with a 1 year subscription for Solid Edge Premium! We simply ask you to submit an idea for a component or product that could benefit from generative design and/or 3D printing. You can read about generative design, access a new infographic, and enter the competition on the Design World website.

With this competition Design World and the Solid Edge team are inviting you to explore the possibilities of generative design for one of your key component or product design challenges. You are invited to submit your design idea, with images if possible, to be judged on feasibility, innovation and creativity. In 500 words or less, you should describe in detail the problem/challenge for designing a specific component or product. You can also explain how you would use the generative design approach together with 3D printing technology to design and manufacture the component or product. You can include images in your submission, and entries are due by February 28th 2018.
