ZW3D Hosts Holiday Design Challenge


GUANGZHOU, China, Nov. 26 – ZWSOFT, a leading supplier of CAD/CAM solutions to the AEC and MCAD industries, announced it is holding a holiday design challenge on GrabCAD.com. Participants use ZW3D CAD/CAM software to design gifts for their loved one this holiday season with a chance to win great prizes, just in time for Christmas! Visitors are welcome to share or vote for their favorite holiday gift.

ZWSOFT is partnering up with GrabCAD, 3D Connexion and Ponoko to bring designers a fun contest this holiday season that lets them show off their design skills in ZW3D while having a chance to win real prizes that they can put to use. The idea behind this design challenge is to share designs, which comes from the tradition to share gifts with others during Christmas time. ZW3D wants everyone to come up with their ideal Christmas gift, and bring it to life with ZW3D. “We want participants to be creative! Design fun gifts.” Stated Colin Lin, Manager of the ZW3D Technical Department, “Don’t just make a model of Santa Claus – think of something unique and original. A mechanical Reindeer? A Christmas Tree Star made completely of gears? Surprise us!”

The contest takes place from November 1st to 30th and we’ve had a great response from participants. Fateh M. commented on GrabCAD.com, “Wow, great competition!” The prizes this year have risen to a new level in the spirit of the holidays and thanks to our sponsors 3D Connexion and Ponoko.

Prizes will be judged on a variety of criteria, including quality (of course) but also creativity, popularity and ease of manufacturing. “We have seen some great entries so far,” stated Colin Lin, “but I can’t wait to see what else participants will come up with and how they will utilize the features and functionalities of ZW3D.”

Visitor’s like and shares of the entries will also be a reference to judge the prizes. We warmly welcome visitors to come by and find out your favorite Christmas gift. Please visit: http://grabcad.com/challenges/zw3d-design-challenge-holiday-edition
