New! 3DDerby: Design. Print. Race.COE_206056-17_Box Car Banner_V72.jpg

COE's Top Gun Competition has been revamped for 2018, with a new challenge for interested competitors to engage in! The format will be similar to a Pinewood Derby, except the cars will not be made of wood - they will be 3D printed! We are currently looking for participants, so please send us an email with your name if you are interested in competing! The competition will launch in January, giving our competitors January-February to design their car models.

From January 16, 2018 until March 2, 2018, you will have the opportunity to complete the challenge from the comfort of your own home or office using the latest 3DEXEPERIENCE platform via the cloud. COE will then have your car 3D printed via the new 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace. Your car will be available at the COE 2018 Annual Experience & TechniFair Conference in April! Racing and judging will be done throughout the conference with prizes given on the final day. You will then bring your creation to the floor of the COE 2018 Annual Experience & TechniFair Conference in April! More information will be available in the coming weeks!
