The 3DEXPERIENCE Lab social challenges are
recurring worldwide competitions organized by
Dassault Systèmes to foster innovation and
empower young talents
SOLIDWORKS xDesign Challenge for FRC Teams
SOLIDWORKS xDesign Challenge for FRC Teams is a competition for all enthusiastic US-based FRC teams to show their creativity in using SOLIDWORKS xDesign, an online 3D CAD software, around a them that has been revealed to them on November 12,2018. The software is provided to all eligible FRC team members who are participating in the challenge. The team needs to have at least 5 student team members, 14 years or older. The end of the challenge to submit the project is December 7, 2018.
3D Fintech challenge 2016
The 3DFinTech Challenge, a 7 week FinTech accelerator program, nurtures and accelerates 6 high performance, start-ups that can potentially transform Financial Services industry. The program, addressing regulatory burden through collaboration, data visualization, improving a 360 view of the customer and simulation, provides immersive mentoring from leading financial institutions and industry domain experts
The 3D Fintech Challenge is a 7 week, immersive accelerator program designed to empower and accelerate technology innovation within Financial Services. In 2015 it focused on addressing the regulatory impact across the industry. It was held from 16th September to 4th November 2015 at Level39, Europe’s largest accelerator hub for high performance start-ups in the financial services community, located in Canary Wharf.
“The 3D FinTech Challenge provided the focus, mentoring and introductions to accelerate a greater commercial deployment. Dassault Systèmes, Deutsche Börse Group, our mentor and domain experts, helped hone and reinforce the strength of our solutions to overcome the hurdles associated with regulatory compliance and systemic and non-systemic risk.”
Cup of IOT Challenge
Cup of IoT is a MADEin3D competition organized by Dassault Systèmes to challenge designers and engineers. The goal is to imagine an original and innovative connected object. Create a team of 3 persons combining design, engineering, and software talents.
Design the object in 3D, and make a prototype using 3D printing. You can also use an open source hardware such as Arduino, WeIO, RaspberryPi, or any similar electronic platform or on proprietary circuit board.
The LIGHTin3D design contest asks participants to design an original 3D model of a lamp or lighting system, one which has the particularity of casting interesting light-and-shadow effects on its surroundings. People had to keep in mind that their project should be 3D-printed.
The lampshade is printed in one piece, combined with a light bulb and a cable it is a solid design without any fragile parts.
Combined with a colored Light Bulb you can easily change the look from black and white to sunrise or spring.
DA VINCI 3D
In partnership with Le Clos Lucé, Scala Archives HP and AMD, we chose to launch a Da Vinci-themed competition. Participants are invited to choose one codex among those provided in the community by Scala Archives (who nicely accepted to give access to some rarer codex pages). You will then model in 3D the machine corresponding to their codex, using any CAD tool you have access to (for example SolidWorks, CATIA, 3DVIA Shape, etc...). Depending on the clarity of the codex and the complexity of the machine, some interpretation will sometimes have to be done.
The MOVEin3D contest consists in creating a 3D model with at least 2 parts. The goal is to highlight the different possibilities of 3D printing. You will need to submit an original 3D creation that has the particularity to be composed of several mechanically independent but not separable parts (no upper limit for parts number, but at least 2 of course). The second constraint that must be taken into account would be to imagine your creation so that the final object is 3D-printable
The winner of this competition, Sudhir Gill, created a device to measure angles .It consists of four parts, and was designed with Solidworks. It is very useful in measuring angles between two surfaces. "It is my original creation and it's still a concept to me since it's not yet made. It's not inspired from any device or someone else work. Since this consists of internally mated parts therefore 3d printing is the only suitable method for manufacturing it."
Disrupt Dixon's design in 3D
Tom Dixon and Dassault Systèmes have teamed up to create the first open design competition based on a modular concept.Tom Dixon will give participants access to the design files of new products, and challenge them to re-configure and remix into different functional objects.
The concept is also relying on the fact that the various parts and "joints", may be 3D printed to give life to the final creation.
