Oce Announces Winners of Design Competition

2 Dec, 2007

Entrants in all modeling categories were judged on quality, creativity, composition, technique, and relevance to category.

Oce last week announced the winners of the company's Oce Best Design Competition for Autodesk University. Winners were selected from a pool of qualified entrants who submitted designs via Oce's Web site in the categories of AEC, manufacturing, geospatial, and plant from October 8 through November 9. The winners represent the most visually impressive designs in each category -- all of which were output on an Oce TCS500 large-format color inkjet print/copy/scan system.

"The selection process for this contest was not easy. We were truly impressed by the outstanding quality and striking details of all of the entries," said Sal Sheikh, vice-president, marketing, Oce Wide Format Printing Systems division.

The winners in each category were as follows:

  • AEC: Jeff Hanson, who used Autodesk Revit 9 software to design a private residence in Denver, Colorado

  • Manufacturing: James Teske, for using Autodesk Inventor Pro 2008 software to design an off-road seismic vehicle

  • Geospatial: Yvonne Stillman, who used AutoCAD LDT 2006 software for a slope analysis in Lebec, California

  • Plant: David Gaskill, for using Autodesk Inventor 2008 software to design a wastewater treatment plant in Hawaii

Images of the winning designs were not immediately available.

A panel of representatives from Oce and Autodesk Users Group International (AUGI) judged the designs online based on the following criteria: quality, creativity, composition, technique, and relevance to category. Oce provided each winning entrant with $300 gift card from a national electronics retailer.
