Mechanical 3D CAD 2022 Competitors


It was an ideal opportunity to challenge yourself and to show off your skills; both technical and mechanical, in learning a new, all-integrated CAD program (Fusion360).
Luke McCormack
It’s honestly very rewarding when you apply yourself and work hard to get to where you are and even if like myself you don't win, it really helps in the long run, as I am now ahead of majority of my peers and am more skilled in relation to CAD than most others.
Dean Byrne
It was a fantastic experience. There is honestly nothing I would change.
Jonathan Johnson
I have no regrets for taking on such a challenge, have met incredible individuals, and am excited for anyone thinking of doing it themselves. I would easily and whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone with an interest in CAD and digital modelling.
Oisín McPhillips
I really didn't expect to be the winner, but I still went to that award ceremony smiling after the event. It was intense, but great fun, and the people I met and got to know over the course of the mentorship program made it all worthwhile.
