We were very impressed with the 2012 3D Rendering contest results. So impressed we wanted to have another opportunity for people to win a license of KeyShot! This time we're teaming up with the GrabCAD community for a friendly competition! Yes, the GrabCAD community and the KeyShot community are going head-to-head to see which can submit the most creative, high-quality renderings possible. Here are the guidelines for those submitting renderings and animations here, on the KeyShot forum.
The theme of this rendering competition is ENGINES
. GrabCAD is filled with amazing models and many in the Engine category are among the most interesting and detailed. A rendering of any Engine model
may be submitted for the contest. We'll have three winners. One for best rendering
, one for best animation
and one for best student rendering
. The best rendering and best animation wins a seat of KeyShot Pro with Animation, the best student entry receives a KeyShot education license. All will receive the enduring admiration of the KeyShot crew and community! Here are all the details.Note: If you have questions on the contest, simply reply to this thread.
