F4 - 3rd Bi-Annual CADathon


Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce F4 will be hosting our third CADathon from August 3rd at 8 PM EST - August 6th at 6 PM EST. The live show with a brand new panel of judges will be streamed on August 7th at 8pm EST in partnership with FUN!

Watch Live: https://www.twitch.tv/firstupdatesnow There will be a giveaway during the show for those who watch live!

For those unaware, a CADathon is like a hackathon but with CAD. People/teams are given a short period of time to CAD a specific thing (in this case a robot) ending with a panel of judges selecting a winner. If you would like more information on the CADathon check out our first and second CADathons as well as our second CADathons live show.

As for what will go on in ours:
Participants will be split into teams of 2. Teams can be premade with people who know each other or participants can enter by themselves and be assigned a random partner. Partners will be assigned by skill level along with the prerequisite of sharing a common CAD suite. We will try to make sure partners are in the same time zone but that will be more difficult. From there, teams will be put in individual google hangouts groups where they can discuss and collaborate. The teams have approximately 3 days to CAD a robot from the game reveal. The game reveal will include a CAD model of the field, a short video explaining the game, and a game manual. When they are done, teams must create a high quality render of their robot and send the F4 crew a link to their robot uploaded in its entirety on Grabcad. Teams will also submit a google forms “pit scouting document” which will help explain their design to the judges. If teams do not submit both a render and a Grabcad link by 6pm est on August 3rd, they will be disqualified. Once done, the files will be inspected to make sure they adhere to the game rules. At 6 PM EST on August 5th, a special F4 CADathon show will go live. First, each team will come on and explain their robots to the audience. Then, a panel of 3 special guest judges will judge each robot on set categories explained in the game manual. The judges will then figure out how many points the robot can potentially score off of a quantitative scoring system. The winner will then be determined based on all of those factors.

The only prerequisites to join are that you are willing to spend time doing it and that you have access to some CAD software. You can be any age (this is not limited to students) and we encourage everyone from newbies to the most advanced CADers to put their skills to the test. If you are new to CAD and would like to be on a larger team to help yourself learn, please contact us as these will be handled on a case to case basis. If you are interested please sign up at the link below. Sign Ups close on July 30rd at Midnight but please sign up as soon as you decide to participate.

https://goo.gl/forms/fxBrPczfE1YET8vH3

If you are interested in being a judge for the show apply here.

Good Luck!

Re: F4 - 3rd Bi-Annual CADathon

Just sent in the form as randomized, but cause Onshape there's a decent chance I'm working alone. If someone does want to work together shoot me a pm and we'll talk about it. Also if someone has any experience rendering in Onshape (Onerender seems to be a thing but idk how/if it works) let me know, cause I should probably take care of this "high quality render" before spending 3 days on this project. I have a mac (school required) so that makes things more complicated...

Re: F4 - 3rd Bi-Annual CADathon

TL;DR: I'm looking for two partners! Read below for details.

So, as stated above I'm looking for two partners (so basically an already formed team). I'm working as a course observer at Stanford University during the day so I can't really put as much time into a partnership to make it fair for both of us. So, the F4 people organizing the event have given me the approval to work with another group, making it three people. I'm decent at Solidworks and pretty much flexible in the evening, and because you still have two people having me on your team is only a plus .

So, if you're interested send a PM my way!

Re: F4 - 3rd Bi-Annual CADathon

I notice that both this time and last time it was said that teams would come on and explain their designs to the audience. This however didn't appear to happen last time, at least on the archived live stream, will this occur this year and if so how would this likely to down. Also would this be a substitute to the written explanations used last time?

Re: F4 - 3rd Bi-Annual CADathon

I wish this happened on a weekend.

I am a Solidworks noob and work full time but would love to be an "observer"* on a team.(So like a third member of a team or something.)

*Observe and maybe help out with some simple drawings here and there.

I can’t speak for the second one but we came on during the first one and explained the design.

We will be doing the same thing as last CADathon where teams just submit a "pit scouting" sheet for the judges and show hosts to use.

Re: F4 - 3rd Bi-Annual CADathon

Midnight EDT on the 1st would be 11PM on the 31st CDT, correct? Just confirming that you mean the first minute of the 1st and not the last.

And by the way we are in daylight savings time not standard time right now. Because apparently the summer is when we need to save daylight...

Signed up, if there's anyone else using Creo looking for a team, DM me.

I should add that I also work, so I'm really only available after 6 or so each night.

I would love to participate, but I have work during the event and I'm out of town for the live show. Good luck to those competing!

Re: F4 - 3rd Bi-Annual CADathon

It's really too bad this is in the middle of a week and not a weekend - I think you'd get a lot more participation on a weekend. Not saying I'd necessarily do it, but weekday events are a nonstarter for me and I'd at least consider drawing something for a weekend.
