Singapore – Riding on the Formula One (F1) fever in Singapore, Raffles Singapore and Raffles Delhi came together to organise a 3D-Printed Aerodynamics F1 Car Competition at Raffles Singapore’s campus on 19 September 2014.
The challenge of the competition was to design and fabricate a 3D model of an aerodynamic car using computer-aided design software such as Rhino or Solidworks and Raffles Singapore’s newly acquired 3D printer. Students from Raffles Delhi, Dhruv Prasad and Vidyut Naidu, even bagged awards for the Best Design and Furthest Distance.
“Through this collaboration, Raffles Product Designers gained knowledge about the aerodynamics of a car and application of technologies in the creation of their designs in a fun and interactive way. This will definitely boost the students’ learning curve.” said Raffles Creative Practitioner Hector Salazar.
