Event Details

Are you an engineer, industrial designer or tinkerer? Do you love Steampunk? Then check out the Steampunk Wheelchair Challenge from ModVic and GrabCAD.

Details of the challenge: The client is Kyron of Florence, Massachusetts and he approached ModVic to Steampunk his Quantum Q6 Edge wheelchair.

ModVic is putting a call out to the GrabCAD Community, the Steampunk and design communities and beyond to brainstorm and submit ingenious modifications to his regular set of wheels. Using the CAD model in the specifications, create a Steampunk version that a teenager would be happy to cruise around with friends.  It’s form and function for a great purpose. Making Kyron’s wheelchair uniquely special will be a great icebreaker for him.

The challenge ends August 7, 2013 (11:59pm UTC). Winners will be announced by September 9, 2013. All the details can be found at
