I saw an announcement for this competition back at Autodesk University 2013, but haven’t yet posted about it on this blog. The competition is now in its final stages – the deadline is on March 26, 2014 at 10am PST – but that means exactly 9 days left to enter from the time this post goes live.
The concept is simple: you have to use one of three Autodesk products – Inventor, Showcase or 3ds Max – to create a rendering of the Morgan 3 Wheeler to be published as an advertisement in MOG Magazine.
Aside from installing one or more of these products – and they’re all available as part of the Autodesk Product Design Suite trial, in case – you will need to download the appropriate model(s) of the Morgan 3 Wheeler from the competition page. The good news is that they've provided decent models for each of the 3 products, so you won’t have to resort to using ReCap Photo, like I did. ;-)
Here’s a quick walkthrough video to get you started:
I’d love to have a crack at this, but a) I’m not eligible as I work for one of the sponsors and b) it wouldn’t be fair as I have some awesome tech at my disposal. I’d be very happy to hear that one of this blog’s readers managed to win, though – I suppose I’d have competed vicariously, at least.
