Never participated before, but myself and our CAD team is really excited to give it a go for the first time! Should be an excellent training experience. Happy CADing everyone!

Thought some of you might be interested in seeing the breakdown of what CAD software competitors are using. Solidworks 2018 being the most popular (58) followed by a near tie between Solidworks 2019 (42) and Inventor 2020 (41).


This is by singles/teams? Or all individuals?
