ASCON announces new surfacing category for its popular design competition
January 26, 2012: St. Petersburg, Russia – ASCON Group, developer and integrator of professional CAD/AEC/PLM solutions, is thrilled to again announce the annual KOMPAS-3D Modeling Contest, now in its tenth year. All current and future customers are welcome to submit images of their design projects made with KOMPAS-3D, the high performance, cost effective, and easy to learn software solution for mechanical design.
The modeling contest is held annually to showcase the abilities of individuals and enterprises using KOMPAS-3D for modeling a wide variety of 3D and 2D designs. The winning results from previous years are exhibited at ASCON’s online Design Gallery at ascon.net/showcase/gallery. This year, a new category is added, for featuring models made with the 3D surfacing features of KOMPAS-3D.
Over the last nine years, some 500 designers and and 215 design firms entered the best efforts of their work. The 3D models submitted included their latest products, newest buildings, and extensive industrial facilities. Many of the projects seen online as 3D models are now successfully implemented as machines, engines, and other products in industries worldwide.
“The first KOMPAS-3D modeling contest in 2002 immediately aroused interest among our customers. At that time, they designed the projects in KOMPAS-3D V5, just in the second 3D version of our software,” recalls Maxim Bogdanov, contest founder and CEO of ASCON Group. “Now, ten years later, the contest’s conditions, evaluation criteria, and users' professional level have changed considerably.
“KOMPAS also changed a lot in these ten years. Its functionality was improved and extended greatly, and, of course, our customers have become much more experienced,” he added. “But interest in the contest has not waned, because designers are creators, and creators should always be recognized – along with the need to exchange experience and knowledge with peers."
