A while ago I had written a post titled “Surfacing In Alibre Design” where I modeled a rose using the solid modeling tools in Alibre Design. The other day, when trying out the features of I uploaded the screenshots in that post to my account. I’m glad someone at Alibre thought of adding a non-mechanical category for the prizes. πŸ˜‰

    If renderings are only required, how do they know it was done in Alibre?

  • I guess they'll as for the actual files later on if you are selected as a winner. Oh, and yes, they will verify your Alibre Design license as well. πŸ˜‰

    Correct. Per the official rules on you need to have a screen shot of the model in Alibre Design as well as a description of what it does. We'll verify winner files.
