watchX - Housing Design Event With 3DEXPERIENCE

Hi everyone.

As you know, the watchX does not have a housing included in the box. Because we want our users to experience 3D design and come up with their own ideas for housings. That’s why you can find the original design files of watchX from GrabCAD and a Reference Housing Design from Thingiverse.

We were discussing this idea with our friends from the Dassault Systemes. And we wanted to turn this idea into a design event. They have a new platform called 3DEXPERIENCE. Which lets users to get access to a fully-fledged 3D design environment in their web browser.

The main objective of this event is to bring users of the watchX into the design thinking process and expand the design of watchX. Users will use the new 3DEXPERIENCE solution by Dassault Systemes and they will design or modify housings for watchX and its accessory G-Pad.

We will share the event updates and current designs of contributors from the social accounts of argeX and watchX.

The rewards are;

  • watchX Hacker Kit (will be given by draw within the participants)
    • 1 x watchX
    • 1 x G-Pad
    • 1 x Arduino Adaptor
  • 3D Connexion SpaceMouse (will be given to the best design chosen by the jury)

About the Event
The event is divided into 2 stages.

Preliminary Application Stage (Deadline 30/12/2019 00:00 UTC)
Participants will fill and submit a form to enter the event. 50 of the participants will be selected for the next stage.

Design Stage (30/12/2019 00:00 UTC - 25/01/2020 00:00 UTC)
Participants will design housings for watchX and G-Pad at this stage. After the Design Stage jury will evaluate the design by the following terms;

  • Overall aesthetic
  • Ease of use
  • Producibility
  • Innovative thinking

Announcement of The Winners 30.01.2020
The winners will be announced and rewards will be shipped to them.

watchX - Housing Design Event With 3DEXPERIENCE

Terms And Conditions

About The Event

The event “watchX - Housing Design Event With 3DEXPERIENCE Platform” is carried out by argeX with the collaboration of Dassault Systemes.

watchX is a DIY smartwatch that users build and code. It is also a STEM education tool that students learn to code easily. But, in today’s STEM education market the focus is generally on coding. With watchX users also have the ability to design and produce a mobile device housing (smartwatch in this case). This helps to bring industrial design and 3D design for manufacturing to the STEM education market.

There are 3D models of watchX and a reference housing design available for download right now. Users can either download the reference design and 3D print it. Or they can download the original design of watchX and come up with their own ideas.

The main objective of this event is to bring users of the watchX into the design thinking process and expand the design of watchX. Users will use the new 3DEXPERIENCE solution by Dassault Systemes and they will design or modify housings for watchX and its accessory G-Pad.

We will share the event updates and current designs of contributors from the social accounts of argeX and watchX.

The rewards are;

    • 1 x watchX
    • 1 x G-Pad
    • 1 x Arduino Adaptor
  • 3D Connexion SpaceMouse (will be given to the best design chosen by the jury)

Congratulations to everyone who accepted for design event! Please feel free to ask questions!
Good luck!

Hello,
I have one question : do we have to start from scratch or are watchx components available on the plateforme?
Thanks,
François

You can do either of them. It’s all up to you :slight_smile:

You can upload the original design files of watchX from GrabCAD or Reference Housing Design from Thingiverse directly into 3DEXPERIENCE.
