Engineering Competition Is Open!

Local Motors Roof Mounted Light Bar Engineering competition is open!

This is LM's first-ever engineering competition. Click HERE to see the competition page!

We are already seeing innovative designs in the checkup section of our site. Two of our entrants in particular,
braunarsch and FILSKI, have used the checkup feature and generated great feedback though it.

Here are samples of their very cool designs!

braunarsch: "LMRF roof-light experiment"



FILSKI: "Rally Fighter roof lights"


As you can see, their designs and skills are exponentially better than mine!



The competition is CAD based, with each participant using their own CAD software skills to design a Roof Mounted Light Bar that will mount to the chassis of the
Rally Fighter.

To reach this goal, and the ultimate goal of Local Motors, we are making the roof section of the Rally Fighter chassis available for everyone!

As you can see in the images above (mainly in
braunarsch's), the designers of these light bars rely on the actual frame and light igs files.

And if that’s not cool enough…the winning designer gets their name on the actual light bars, $500, and a Solidworks software seat! Its a truly amazing prize.

All of us at Local Motors are extremely excited to see more entries! Come compete!

Tell us what you think!
