Test your Inventor skills and join the 'contest'.


# of participants so far: 3

Feel free to participate - it's just for the fun of it.
You will get points on the scoreboard just for trying.

The deadline for this month's challenge is December 20th 2002.

The December contest drawing is in Customer Files (CF), Subject:
"Inventor_NG_World Cup_ December02" dated December 3. 2002.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Setup note: The drawings are metric and in first angle projection.

Follow these simple rules:
1 - Print the 5 drawings and don't look at them.
2 - Setup your environment (metric/first angle projection) and start a new
sketch.
3 - Place the drawings face down, start the clock, flip the drawings over
and model them as fast as possible ending up with an Assembly with the
correct weight as indicated on the Assembly drawing sheet.
4 - Check the weights with the Accuracy setting 'Very High' of the different
models as indicated on the corresponding drawing sheet before making the
final Assembly.

#1 priority: Correct weight of the Assembly with the Physical Properties
Accuracy setting 'Very High'.
#2 priority: Fastest time.

Let me know how fast you can model and assemble it (don't cheat - it's no
satisfaction to
be the fastest when you know you've cheated).

Email your resulting time directly to me (to keep it a secret) along with
your comments (ph@ambu.com).

If you are dead sure you've made it right and you don't get the correct
weight(s) using the Physical properties 'Very High' Accuracy, I would be
very interested in checking your model(s).

NOTE: Please follow these guidelines before posting files to me directly:
1 - Pull the End of Part marker up below the Origin folder in the Browser
tree on all the models.
2 - Pack and Go the Assembly file and related models.
3 - Use Winzip (www.winzip.com) to compact the files.

The winner will be contacted directly for uploading the model and additional
comments.

I'll report back to the Inventor 6 NG with the results and an updated
scoreboard when the 'contest' is over.

See the recent scoreboard for this contest in CF, subject:
"INVENTOR NG WORLD CUP - NOVEMBER 2002 - MODELS" dated November 21. 2002.

Enjoy,
Peer

You can normally tell the difficulty level by number of participants so far
or there are a lot of chickens masquerading as design engineers using IV put
off by five drawings :smileyhappy: Guess which group I'm in.

How could you need to psych your self up? You wouldn't have seen the drawing yet (according to the rules)

From what I've heard about it.  (see Peer
Hoffmann is a machocist thread)

Being home today, I decided to take in on. After several mis-starts (it
helps to read the directions) I got it done. Peer is a masochist with
holiday spirit. I don't recommend doing it on anything less that a 1
Gigahertz computer.

Looks like I'm in the lead then :smileyhappy: No need to do the export thing, just keep the 1st sketch visible when you create the other parts. You can then just select the dimensions already created.

Steve

ps It was a bugger of a thing to do though.

Steve - if you want to stay in the lead (I didn't say you were) don't give
any hints...8^)

And a piece of advise to all: this is an Inventor challenge, no need to
involve MDT.
It'll only come out with the wrong weight...I'm told.
