Deadlines for Solid Steel Competition, Connectors Club Entries Approaching

Submissions deadlines for both the 2018 SDS/2 Solid Steel Competition and the Connectors Club Award are rapidly approaching. Entries for both are due August 10.

Solid Steel Competition
A company can submit one entry each to both the commercial and/or industrial main categories. After all entries are received, the commercial projects will be split into two subcategories based off structural steel tonnage. Entries will be evaluated equally on: aesthetics of the project; complexity (modeling difficulty, connection design); and tonnage (weight).

For each category, a grand prize will be awarded to one entry. Grand Prize is $3,000 off one year of SDS/2 Software Service Fees, a tablet and a trophy. The tablet will go to the person who submits the entry. Based on the number of entries, second place winners may be awarded to specific categories. If awarded, second place winners in those categories will receive $1,000 off one year of service fees and a trophy.

A Customers' Choice award will be given to one entry. The Customers' Choice winner will receive $1,500 off one year of SDS/2 Software Service Fees, a tablet and a trophy. The tablet will go to the person who submits the entry.

The awards will be presented at the 2018 SDS/2 Users Group Conference in Lincoln, Nebraska. To learn more about the competition or to submit your project, click here.

Connectors Club Award
The SDS/2 Connectors Club evolved as a collective way to annually thank a user, new or experienced, who selflessly offers their expertise with the software to others in the industry. Their genuine excitement about SDS/2 is what motivates this individual to keep others connected to the software's capabilities.

SDS/2 users can nominate a standout individual who has demonstrated exemplary dedication and commitment to the development and application of SDS/2. Here are some guidelines to follow when nominating someone for the award:

  • A new or an experienced SDS/2 user
  • Involved with the SDS/2 community; this may include helping other SDS/2 users through the SDS/2 Forums, direct phone calls or emails
  • Actively promotes SDS/2 in the industry by example
  • Constructively helps SDS/2 with improving their products
