    The Engineering Category Problem:

    The task for the Engineering Design Category is to create a functional design of a front lower door opening lighted sill plate. A digital model of a portion of the lower door opening/ rocker panel area will be provided in the form of an STP file from which to build the design using any CAD system available to you.

    Specifications, Format, and Presentation Requirements:   


    • The sill plate assembly must consist of the plate, lights, seals, wire leads, fasteners and seals. Only a short wire lead needs to be shown going through the provided sheet metal hole & grommet.  No connectors etc. are necessary. The fastening, and light sealing methods must be fully defined
    • A portion of the lower door panel is included in the STP file to facilitate the fastening method. 
    • The sill plate assembly needs to be clearly defined using necessary auxiliary views and sections.
    • The fastening system, using screws, clips or other forms of attachments must be clearly defined by necessary views and sections along with any seals or gaskets. 
    • The part design must not include the name of the student, school, school logo, or otherwise identify the student, school, or the school district.
    • Each part of the sill plate assembly must be shown in orthographic projection using at least two views. Section, auxiliary; iso views can be used as needed to fully describe the plate and lighting system assembly to clearly show how they fit together and are assembled.
    • A parts list and / or labeling of each component showing part name and material must be included on the drawing.
    • Fasteners, seals and other such devices must also be shown in their proper assembled position.  
    • No dimensions need to be shown on the drawing. 
    • An exploded pictorial assembly view may be used, but is not required. 
    • Supporting written documentation describing the design, choice of materials, cost considerations, and any unique design features, etc. is encouraged but not required. If separate, the documentation should be firmly attached to the drawing
    • The clear and complete depiction of all necessary views to define the sill plate and any assemblies and fasteners are a critical consideration in the judging of your entry.
    • The design must be on a single sheet or display board and be no larger than 24 x 36 inches (D size). Folding display boards must be no larger than 24 x 36 when open.
    • A physical model of the sill plate system may be submitted, but not required, with the drawing and must be less than full scale. Maximum of five pounds
    • The entry is to be identified with the “Student Information Block” that is included with the Contest materials. The “student Information Block is supplied under two file formats of your choosing. This “Student Information Block” is to be included or attached to the lower right hand corner of the sheet, or printed and attached to physical models. Enter the information requested including the student proper first and last name. Please do not change the scale of the Block; it should appear 3.5” x 3.5” on the drawing. No other title block or identifier should be used. Student and school information will be masked during judging.


    Entries will be Judged On:

    • Creativity of the design
    • Clearly defined functionality of the design
    • Ability to be assembled
    • Serviceability 
    • Clearly defined fastening and joining methods
    • Principles of proper engineering drawing; necessary views shown, overall drawing appearance. 
    • Decision of the judges is final
