SEU 16 Rendering Contest

Solid Edge University Rendering Contest

This contest is sponsored by Solid Edge, Luxion, Lenovo, and 3D Connexion. Read the rules to the right, and submit your Keyshot rendered images of Solid Edge models on the Entries tab. If you are not already a registered member of the community, you must register to enter images. You may enter multiple images, and the images may have simple (but not substantive) post edits.

We may ask to verify that models used to render winning entries are native Solid Edge models, such verification being done by submitting the model for inspection. We recognize that there are a lot of tools available for modeling, but this is a Solid Edge contest, and the point is to encourage Solid Edge users to be creative with your CAD data. The first step in a cool rendering is a great model. Make sure also that the model is yours and that you have rights to show it. In short, no proprietary Double Top Secret DARPA ray guns, or GrabCAD downloads, please... (Shared models may be used as background models, but the main focus of the rendering needs to be something you made.)

The winners will be announced at Solid Edge University 2016 in Indianapolis. You do not need to be present to win, but we will display winning renderings at the conference.
