WICI will use FreeCAD. It is available to download at https://www.freecadweb.org/. Only the doer will need to have the software downloaded.

Only the writer need to access Scilympiad for WICI. The writer will start the test and will give them a link to the screenshots of the model and the FCStd FreeCAD model file. It is up to the writer to email the supervisor and the doer 25 minutes after starting with their pdf, google doc, or Word document with their instructions as well as the FreeCAD model for the writer. 20 minutes after the instructions are received, the doer should email their model to the event supervisor.

If sample screenshots or sample CAD files are needed, the BEARSO Events document has links to both.

LMMM's prebuild topic is Scioly.org. The on-site build will still be run; it will be due a maximum of 5 minutes after you have taken the test (through a google forms link linked in the test).

Machines has no build portion (for obvious reasons).

Due to feedback from participants, we will be extending testing time to Thursday, October 29th 3:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM PT. Future SMEC events will likely last one week long in order to accommodate for invitationals and other competitions which typically occur on weekends.
