Showcase Your Design Skills At the 2016 Top Gun Challenge – Final Days to Register

Are you a CATIA engineer or designer? Have you always wanted to showcase your design skills? More importantly, do you enjoy the thrill of competition?

If so, then the Top Gun XXIX: Cloud Challenge 2016 is for you!

Building upon the momentum of the COE Annual Experience and TechniFair back in April, the CATIA Operators Exchange (COE) is hosting its annual Top Gun Challenge, a fun competition for all CATIA designers to test their ability to quickly and accurately design a three dimensional model.  Running until May 31, the contest is also an opportunity for users to get their hands on the latest tools and capabilities in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

To give you a glimpse of what to expect, check out the video below:


Last year’s winners: Chris Rempe, Eric Neuville, Ben Lucia


This year, participants can complete the challenge from the comfort of their home or office. The competition runs through Tuesday May 31 and registrants can log in at any point during this time frame and begin creating their model.

  • Registrants will receive their login information as well as detailed instructions on downloading and installing the software from Dassault Systèmes
  • Registrants will see the model upon logging in for the first time
  • Inceptra will quality check each model after the close of the contest. Models will be judged for their accuracy and the time it took to complete
  • Winners will be announced in early June and receive prizes from Dassault Systèmes, Inceptra and COE

As a proud partner of the 2016 Top Gun Challenge, Dassault Systèmes is looking forward to this year’s designs!
