Model Mania Returns to 3DEXPERIENCE World

Model Mania® returns to the all-digital 3DEXPERIENCE® World 2021 and next year, this annual competition will be divided into three different challenges.

The SOLIDWORKS Challenge

Back for its 22nd year, Model Mania will be the place to display your talents to the greater SOLIDWORKS community. This annual design challenge pits user against user and reseller against reseller in a battle of SOLIDWORKS skills to see who can accurately model and analyze a part the fastest.

The 3DEXPERIENCE Challenge

Model Mania will also be the place to show off your modeling skills in the cloud. In this challenge, resellers and users will use 3DEXPERIENCE roles, such as 3D Creator and 3D Sculptor, and share their models to the 3DEXPERIENCE World community.

The Student 3DEXPERIENCE Challenge

Students are invited to participate in a Model Mania challenge using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. All participating students will get access to the platform for FREE for 6 months. Refine your design skills using 3D Creator and 3D Sculptor and share your designs on the Student community.
