Thank you for joining the 2019 Impractical CAD Contest. Your submission should be submitted as 4+ .png or.jpeg renders, and at least one animation in .mkv or .mp4. The animation need not be of the cad file, but should demonstrate how it works.
No plagiarism: If it ain’t your CAD, I will find you .
Submit as only the above listed formats.
Your renders and animation will be released for voting along with a description you wrote yourself.
All things must follow the 2019 Destination: Deep Space oficial rules except:
A: Illegal Scoring Actions (e.g. two cargo at a time) are removed.
B: Limits on parts (e.g. unlimited motors)
C: Cost limitations
