Wild Parts Competition Yields Unique Designs

by Mat Dirjish

Mastercam, provider of computer aided manufacturing (CAM) hardware and software, is announcing the winners of its 2021 Wildest Parts Competition. The yearly event promotes interest and participation in manufacturing and is open to students at the secondary and postsecondary levels. There is also a division for professional Mastercam users to enter their parts creations.  

Competition participants demonstrate their creative and technical skills using Mastercam tools. In the Secondary Division, Wes Bruski from Capital High School, Montana, took first place with a domino and dice cup game set. Wes made the prototypes out of wood and machined the final set. Second place went to Cadogan Wheat from Hamilton High School, Montana, who designed a model of a padlock.

In the Postsecondary Division, Gus Bronk from Washington State University won first place with a unique keyboard made from exotic materials. He machined the main case from a Boeing surplus forged billet of 2000 series aluminum from the 1970s. Jim Courtney from Erie Community College, New York, took second place with a working carousel and Jonathan Hughes from Erie Community College took third with a marble machine. That’s just a small sampling of some of the entries and winners.
