A huge milestone for GrabCAD this week. The community that started just over a year ago has reached 40,000 engineers, designers, makers, geeks and modeling freaks. You can see the amount of models they're sharing. Let's take a look from some interesting ones from the past week. Hit it!
This is Selcuk Ozmumcu's first upload to GrabCAD (and you MUST check out his other uploads!) The Mirage 2000 (SolidWorks /STEP/Parasolid) is a French fighter jet from Dassault Aviation. Stop by and welcome Selcuk and check out the surfacing on that model.
Best! This is of course the Class M-3 Model B9 General Utility Non-Theorizing Environmental Control Lost in Space Robot (SolidWorks/STEP), lovingly referred to by Dr. Zachary Smith as a "bubble-headed booby."
This beautiful aircraft model is a <href="http://grabcad.com/library/epic-380vt-concept" target="_blank">Epic 380VT Concept (IGES/WIRE) and the first model upload by Jamie Klopp. It's a concept he did for the company in 2008. Thanks for sharing Jamie!
The Shelby Tuatara Interior Design Challenge is in full effect and with a US $2,000 prize and a lot of Awesome GrabCAD talent, there are some great submissions coming in. Like this Tuatara Interior from Gee, taking orange and inlay to a whole new, incredibly cool level.
That wraps another week of incredible models from the GrabCAD library. There are so many there, we're sure to miss a few. If so, let us know what your favorites were in the comments and remember, it's always cool to upload a STEP/IGES file along with the native CAD data so everyone can have some fun with the model. Until next time.
