    GrabCAD, an online community of over 120,000 mechanical engineers, has launched a design challenge tasking members to model an urban electric micro vehicle. The winning design, as chosen by automotive design experts and speakers at Auto® 2012 Automotive Design Conference (including Frank Stephenson, Design Director, McLaren; Gordon Murray, Gordon Murray Design and SébastienStassin, Kiska) will receive worldwide promotion as well as prizes directly from GrabCAD. The urban mobility market is booming. By 2015 thirty million scooters will be sold annually. This niche is so big that manufacturers are starting to create vehicles just for this demographic. Motorcycle companies are experimenting with larger and more feature-filled motorcycles while automotive companies are shrinking their vehicles. These companies are all fighting for the same consumers. GrabCAD has created a challenge where engineers can upload concepts in the form of 3d models. For more information or to view submissions, visit: http://grabcad.com/challenges/urban-e-v GrabCAD is a community founded by mechanical engineers. It is also a place for engineers to share their talent, expand knowledge, find a dream project and work with tools and features that make life better.

    Weekly Sketches

    Not bad at all for a high school student. I recommend you to check out the tutorials at carbodydesign.com and study cars proportions from real life or photos. Start tracing cars I would say. But when you trace, you should try to construct all the lines. Keep it up!

    Neomed: Perfusion System

    Nice presentation. The final design looks still a bit intimidating in terms of mechanical feel. The display looks a bit too small (looking at the last images),but it might not be an issue if the interface is simple. So you basically removed the physical interface on the existing product (very first image) and used a touch screen to control 3 pumps?

    Sketch Rendering Tutorial

    Sketchbook Pro might be a good alternative to do these quick renderings too. But Photoshop has more functions, such as changing the colors with hue/saturation tool.

  12. The objective of this contest is to discover and award the best soccer collectible design work. The contest is a supporting event of the ETNO 2012 Soccer Culture Festival, which in turn is a side event of the EURO 2012 Championship, hosted by Poland and Ukraine. It is open to any and all professional and amateur designers who produce minor designer pieces, preferably (albeit not necessarily): designer toys, mobile device cases, fingerboards, pop-up books, etc. The collectibles may be inspired by Slavic folk culture, although it’s not a requirement. Your work must however relate in an entertaining and clear way to soccer culture and various rituals in which fans and players engage. All submitted works will be displayed in May 2012 on the ETNO 2012 website (http://www.etno2012.com) as a virtual gallery. Visitors will then vote for their favorite pieces, as well as have the possibility to purchase them. The awarded works will be displayed in June 2012 as a real-life exhibition at the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, situated at a close distance from the stadium at which the EURO 2012 Championship will be concurrently hosted at that time. The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2012. The contest is organized by Animation Found, a Polish NGO. Ranged Event From: 01 Feb 2012 To: 01 May 2012 View the full article

  18. Zexel, 10 years ago I went through some similar classes that involved die hard mechanical engineering stuff, and yes I had the feeling that it was not necessary to go so deep into that. I remember that there were students who quit the study just because of that. But you might find that knowledge quite useful in your profession as and industrial designer, as you might have some conversations with engineers (mechanical, chemical, etc..) who are talking about the things that you learned a long time ago. Anyways, at least acquiring basic knowledge will help you to understand the physical constraints in order to design products that are feasible to manufacturer. Also knowledge of materials will make you more creative in your design solutions. Just my 2cents, Waikit

    Sketch Of A Chemical Device

    What does it do? The perspective looks good. not sure about the material renderings.. is it supposed to be stainless steel? is the top supposed to be transparent, or is it just for viewing purpose? i'd suggest to add a silhouette of a human to give an idea of size

    Sketch Rendering Tutorial

    Use a gradient background area to make the sketches pop out more, and we are done for this one. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions to do it better or faster.

    Sketch Rendering Tutorial

    We are almost done. The final thing is to use the burn tool to give that large grey surface on the left sketch a more gradient transition from light to dark, in order to add more depth.
