Are you the best NX designer at Siemens PLM Connection 2014?

If you feel you are, here is your chance to prove it.  We are bringing back an old favorite, the Top Gun Competition. Prove how good you are at modeling in NX.

The final competition will take place Tuesday evening in the Exhibit Hall during the Partner reception 6:30-8:30pm. We will have 10 work stations set up in the center of the hall in the Knowledge Theater.

About the contest:  

Contestants will be in an open area where the other attendees can watch, and heckle from the sidelines.  If you think this contest is for you, expect a fair amount of taunting from the viewers.  

Designing will be done in the latest version of NX.  At the start of the competition, the object to be designed will be unveiled.  Contestants will not know what that object is before that time.  Contestants will be able to walk up to the object and look at it, but not touch.  They will not be given any tools to measure, so all will have to be done by eye.  Contestants will be given a limited time to get as much done on their design as possible.

We are pleased to have John Baker from Siemens PLM Software as the MC for the event.  He will be providing commentary to the audience throughout the design phase.  

Once the alloted time has passed,  judges from PLM World and SPLM will critique the models and determine the winners.  Prizes will be given to the top competitor in each category.
