2019 Masters of CAM Wildest Parts Competition Winners: Postsecondary Division

This week, we are excited to officially announce the winners of the 2019 Masters of CAM Wildest Parts Competition! We had four categories available this year: Secondary, Postsecondary, Teams, and Professional.

Each year, we eagerly await the arrival of the Wildest Parts Competition entries. Seeing what the participants create and getting to know our users through these entries is a rewarding part of what we do. With prizes up to $3,000 for winning entries, we hope our users continue to be as excited to enter this contest each year as we are to receive their submissions.

Today, we are sharing with you the winners of the Postsecondary Division. This division is open to students from around the world using Mastercam at the college/university level of education.

Tomorrow we will reveal the winners of our Teams Division.


First Place- Engine Block

First Place – Engine Block
Student: Colin May, Erie Community College
Instructor: Nathan Witkowski

Colin has wanted to make an aluminum V8 engine block for a while, and he comes from a family that has been in the manufacturing industry for more than 50 years. He had to juggle work, classes, and finding the time to work on his engine block. But he finished it and is extremely proud of what he has accomplished!

Wildest Parts Second Place, Oil Pan.

Second Place – Oil Pan
Student: Robert Englehart, Washington State University
Instructor: Kurt Hutchinson

Robert joined FSAE his sophomore year in college and has always had a passion for cars. He decided that the oil pan that they had to make would be a great entry, but they wanted to add a windage tray and cooling fins for the extra WOW factor! He used Mastercam’s OptiRough toolpath and is very proud of how his part came out.

Third Place- BMX Stem

Third Place – BMX Stem
Student: Ryan Speidel, Erie Community College
Instructor: Nathan Witkowski

Growing up, all Ryan wanted to do was ride his bike and was constantly searching for the perfect combination of strength and weight for his bike parts. So, Ryan decided he was going to make a BMX stem in his Advanced CNC class. He used Mastercam’s high speed Dynamic Contour toolpath. After this project, Ryan said he is happy to have a much better grasp on using Mastercam.

If you are currently a student at the college / university level of education using Mastercam as part of your classwork, you are eligible to enter the Wildest Parts Competition in the Postsecondary Division for 2020. Entries are due before June 30, 2020.
