May Contest has grown into a bit of a battle between Deepak Gupta and Frank Dijkstra. I must say the response is a bit more than I expected. There are certainly a lot of SolidWorks related online forums. The winner is a long way from being determined. Even with all of their combined contributions (many of which has surprized me), I can comfortably say there are forums they haven’t found yet. Who will come out on top? Sitting on the sidelines is Matt West who has shown interest in submitting many of his own links. I have to wonder if the uniqueness his list has been diminished as a result of Deepak’s and Frank’s efforts. I guess we’ll soon see.
Announcing the May 2009 SolidWorks Legion Contest. This month’s contest is a scavenger hunt. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to find SolidWorks related forums (such as http://forum.solidworks.com or http://www.eng-tips.com) that are not currently linked on my resources site here. To enter the contest, simply comment on this message with the link of the new site(s) you’ve found. The person with the most new sites will win. For repeated sites, the first person to submit the link will get credit for it. Also, if need be, we’ll do a rock-paper-scissors via email as a tie breaker. The outcome of this contest is at my sole discretion, but I promise to act fairly. 🙂 This contest will conclude on June 1, 2009.
Up for grabs is a CSWP test of your choice. If you already have your CSWP, then try for one of the specialty certifications, such as modelling or sheet metal. Best of luck to all!
