The June SW Legion Contest asked the brave ones among us to provide the very simplest ellipsoid within Solidworks.Â It turned out that the rules where a little too general.Â In my excitement to announce this contest, I failed to specify that I was looking for scalene ellipsoids, not just any old sphere.Â I also left off the detail that I wanted a fully defined solid model.
Due to this oversight, I will be awarding two CSWP tests this month.Â One test will go to the person that technically fulfilled the initial requirements.Â The second test will be awarded to the person that produced the simplest scalene ellipsoid.
June SW Legion Contest has received eleven entries from ten individuals.Â A couple of entries were just for fun.Â One was a PDF of a model created in AutoCAD, and the other was a simple sphere submitted by a fellow blogger (who himself is giving away CSWPs, so does not need another one from me).Â Technically, his entry would’ve tied with the other entry that used the same method to create a Prolate spheroid.
The easiest way to make a sphere or similar object in SolidWorks is to have a single sketch of an arc that is then revolved.Â We have one serious entry that used this method by Sandeep Pawar.Â He has requested the CSWP test.Â Best of luck, Sandeep, and congratulations!
I have further review to undertake in order to declare a victor for the search for the simplest scalene ellipsoid SolidWorks model among the entries.Â I have four very compelling entries which I’m currently looking over.Â More details to come.
