Mastercam Wildest Parts Competition

The challenge is simple. Create a bold, original item using Mastercam that shows off your design and machining skills.

The Mastercam Wildest Parts Competition challenges students and professionals to create something that shows off imaginative design and exciting machining skills. We are looking for high quality parts that either haven’t been done before or have never been done like that before.
