COMPUTER APPLICATIONS DIVISION:
Entries in the classification must include necessary equipment for demonstration and evaluation. All entries must be completed within the Industrial Technology Education/Technology Education classroom. Display and presentation boards or screenshots and wire-frame may be used to illustrate the problem and show the steps followed to develop the project. Entries are platform independent. Detailed instructions for viewing or running the presentation are required. All content must be original. Groups eligible to participate N & P

(CA-1) - 3D Modeling: Groups eligible to participate N & P
            Entries in this classification should be designed to solve a problem using a 3D modeling software application. The students work will be judged on complexity of problem, purpose, presentation, and innovativeness. The 3D Modeling challenge is designed to introduce the student to a 3D modeling system and to the concepts such systems are based upon. The purpose of the challenge is to have fun, be creative and get better at using their favorite 3d modeling program. 3D Modeling Challenge is an event that challenges the creativity, and imagination of the student to create a 3D Model of a imagined machine (transformer, Wall-E), or  architectural scene (Future town, or a Babylon), or (a new concept vehicle) but not limited to these, creativity and originality is the theme for 3d modeling. The competition is designed to promote the creation of new and innovative graphic representation of an innovative new ? using any 3D modeling software at their disposal. All entries must provide a computer for display and evaluation. All objects used in the 3D model must be original work created by the student or students, Items should not come from libraries or templates already created and available within the program. This category is not an Architectural or Mechanical presentation drawings, but purely for the creative mind, detail drawings with dimensions are not required. Objectionable or offensive content will be removed. Scoring Guide for CA-1

(CA-3) - Computer Animation: Groups eligible to participate N & P
            Entries in this classification should be completely computer generated and must be completed by an individual student or a group of students. Software such as Lightwave 3d, Studio Max, Maya, and Cinema 4D but not limited to these can be used. The students work will be judged on a wire frame construction of the animated objects or objects as well as their computer illustration, shaded, and rendering of the object. Since this is an animation, the object should run smoothly through a number of frames to produce a 30 second to 1 minute animated presentation. The instructions for presentation start-up and operation must be typed and/or graphically illustrated. All design work must be viewable and ready for review and evaluation either on computer or  display board. All entries must provide necessary equipment for application operation and evaluation.
