Masters of CAM Wildest Parts Competition

Wildest Parts

The challenge is simple. Create a bold, original item using Mastercam.

We will display these parts at trade shows and educational events all over the world. We are looking for eye-catching items that will demonstrate the many impressive and creative things that can be made with Mastercam.

Go ahead and break the mold, think outside of the box, and cut outside the lines. All entrants receive a Mastercam t-shirt. The top award in each category is $3000, with a total of $5000 in prizes for each of the four categories.
