Test your Inventor skills and join the 'contest'.

# of participants so far: 40

NOTE: This month's challenge can be made by any Inventor release.

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 November 20th 2002.

The November contest drawing is in Customer Files (CF), Subject:
"Inventor_NG_World Cup_November02" dated November 1. 2002.
WEBBASED CF:^1@.ee940b5


Setup note: The drawing is metric and in first angle projection.

Follow these simple rules:
1 - Print the drawing and don't look at it.
2 - Setup your environment (metric/first angle projection) and start a new
3 - Place the drawing face down, start the clock, flip the drawing over and
model it as fast as possible ending up with the correct volume as indicated
on the drawing.

#1 priority: Correct volume.
#2 priority: Fastest time.

Let me know how fast you can model 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 (

There are currently 3 (correct) ways to model this, but they are returning 3
different volumes using the default Physical properties Update button, so:
If you are dead sure you've made it right and you don't get the correct
volume using the default Physical properties Update button, try this:
1. Make a Rebuild of the Model:
Tools-Rebuild, or
Pull the EOP all the way up - release it and pull it all the way back
down again.
2. Go to Properties-Physical and preselect the Accuracy to 'Very High'.
If this doesn't return the volume of 6.436E+004mm^3, I would be very
interested in checking your model.

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
2 - In Windows Explorer right-click on the file and choose
3 - Finally use Winzip ( to compact the file.

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

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