A big congratulations to Andy Lewis of Office 12, winner of this year’s SOLIDWORKS Model Mania competition!

Model Mania, our annual design competition run at all of our regional SOLIDWORKS Upgrade events. The challenge is to create an accurate model in SOLIDWORKS based on a drawing (shown below) and the target is to complete the task (accurately!) in under 15 minutes. The quickest daily time wins an Amazon voucher with the top 3 over the three weeks winning prizes that include an iPad, 3D Connexion SpaceMouse or a CAD Mouse.


Thank you for all those who attended and the great feedback we have received since. This year’s Model Mania was hard fought with over 100 people competing, so a big congratulations to Andy Lewis (Office 12), Nicholas Bizinos (Specialist Aviation Services) and Phil Kidd (G&S Smithwaite) who came 1st (6m 52 sec), 2nd and 3rd respectively.

If you think you can do better, why not test yourself against this year’s question below.


Model Mania is part of our annual SOLIDWORKS Upgrade events. This year it was delivered to over 500 customers and took place over three weeks from the 6th-22nd October stretching across 9 venues from Northallerton to Yeovil. The day itself is customer orientated with several sessions including a What’s new in SOLIDWORKS 2016, a Hints & Tips as well as a Q&A Session. Breakfast and lunch is provided and there is plenty of opportunity to talk with other SOLIDWORKS users as well as our Engineers and take a look at the partner products on display.
