Gordon Stewart - SolidWorks World 2012 Model Mania Winner

Congratulations to our Application Engineer/Instructor and CSWE, Gordon Stewart, for winning a place in the SolidWorks World 2012 Model Mania competition.  Completing the challenge in just over 11 minutes, Gordon came in third position out of more than 200 contestants.  It's always good to know you're being trained by one of the best!

Here's Gordon heading up on stage with the other winners and the solution to the problem they had to solve.  If you want to try the SolidWorks World 2012 Model Mania competition yourself, refrain from watching this video until you've attempted it.

How to try model mania for yourself.

Download part 1 and part 2

Print off both eDrawings.  Do not look at the second one yet.

You can examine the first for a few minutes before deciding how you are going to model it up. 
Once you are ready, start a 20 minute countdown.

Model up the part as per the drawing.  Once you are satisfied that you have finished that section you can then go to part 2.

Once started the clock does not stop.  Look at the second eDrawing and you will see the changes that need to be carried out as well as a quick SimulationXpress study.

The time stops when you have the Factor of Safety value from the study.
