How Fast? Model Mania 2023 SOLIDWORKS Student Challenge at 3DEXPERIENCE World

3DEXPERIENCE World 2023,  February 12-15, 2023, brings together a vibrant community of designers, engineers, students, educators, entrepreneurs and leaders to learn, engage, share knowledge and drive innovation around the 3DEXPERIENCE® Works portfolio and the SOLIDWORKS ecosystem.  We have created an exciting program just for students and its all free!

The excitement starts now with Model Mania 2023 SOLIDWORKS Student Challenge,  a virtual world-wide design competition that tests your skills, all with a chance to get free access to our latest software technology, win great prizes,  and show your friends how fast and accurate you can model.

Students that register for 3DEXPERIENCE World 2023, virtual or in-person,  are invited to participate in this year’s Model Mania Student Challenge.  Model Mania is a design challenge where participants are rated for both speed and accuracy. Students will be tasked to reproduce a model using 3D DESIGNER. Based on SOLIDWORKS and powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud, 3D DESIGNER is a full-cloud design solution, ready to use from any browser and device. No installation or powerful machine required. Students can refine their design skills using 3D Designer and then share their finished model on the Student SWYM community for a chance to win these prizes.
