A few months ago, PTC asked Creo users to submit their best work for our Product Design Contest. In return, we saw entries covering everything from a space-age racing pod to a multi-axis drilling fixture for bowling balls.

We’ve featured the winner and runners up in previous blog posts, now take a look at some of the designs from finalists who made the most of their 3D CAD software to create unique, elegant, and sophisticated designs.

Cooling Assembly designed by Bruno Santos

Design contest finalist: Cooling assembly

In building this design for a cooling assembly, Santos relied on Creo’s

capabilities in assembly management and sheet metal design.

Orbital Sander designed by Xiyin Yao

Design contest finalist: Orbital sander

Yao says he found his inspiration for this Orbital Sander in Nike’s approach to

design. The orbital sander is a hard-working power tool with an ergonomic

and appealing design.

Traits of Sunflower designed by Ting-Chun Lin

Design contest finalist: sunflower jewelry piece

Lin was inspired by Sunflowers when crafting the complex organic

forms that characterize this line of jewelry. The user-friendly functionality

in Creo meant Lin could focus on creativity, and designing forms and

surfaces – instead of on manipulating the software.

3D Printer designed by Muthalpandy Muthirulappan

 Design contest finalist: 3D printer

Using the sophisticated design tools in Creo, Muthirulappan designed this

low-cost metal 3D printer. When asked what was especially useful in Creo,

he wrote ‘everything!’
