New! Top Gun XXX
3DDerby: Design. Print. Race.

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 December, giving our competitors January-February to design their car models. More information will be available in the coming weeks!

Competition Requirements:

  • Email COE HQ your request to compete in the 3DDerby.
  • Receive COE HQ information sheet detailing further instructions (designing and modeling details).
  • Complete the model within a given design space (sample image below).
  • Submit to print
  • Race your car at the COE 2018 Annual Experience and TechniFair, happening April 15-18!
