Please read the following in order to optimize your performance experience on the Infinite-Compute Cloud Platform:

Infinite-Compute currently has two (2) Data Centers – one on the US East Coast (New York), and one on the US West Coast (San Jose). You can expect the best experience about 500 miles from either one of these Data Centers.

You could expect latency or performance impact if you are using:
* Low bandwidth internet provider
* Poor or unreliable Wi-Fi connection
* Too High a resolution Browser window, just make the windows smaller. (1. minimize your app, 2. make the window smaller, 3. refresh your browser, then maximize your app.)

We’ve had reasonable experiences outside of the 500 miles from every corner of the globe. Just not the perfect experience you get when you are close to a data center and have good internet and wifi.

Note: We take your experience on our platform very seriously. Ensuring that our global users have the optimal user experience on the Infinite-Compute platform is critical to our promise of creating a global empowerment platform for freelance or small business designers and engineers. We continue to monitor performance and new Data Centers to our network.

Dear CAD Crowd creators - This contest has officially ended and want to thank so many of you for your interest and especially those who took the time to participate. Apparently CAD Crowd does not have a way to allow us to do a public voting, so we will judge the contest with the experienced CAD professionals on our staff. We will plan on releasing results next week. We will also get a survey out to you shortly. Thanks again for your active interest and participation, and we hope to connect with you again in the near future. All the best in all you do,

Hi Supra77 - thanks for your questions. According to the Cad Crowd contest rules, once the contest ends later today, we have two weeks to review and decide the winners. (though I don't believe we will take that long). We plan on sending you the survey a few days after the contest ends. Will let you know so you can expect it. Thanks for asking Supra77.

Hall of Optical Illusions
I need a 3D CAD drawing of a Room of optical illusions for a permanent exhibit. This is in the conceptual stages. There will be other rooms requiring CAD drawings, but this is a pilot contest to see range of creativity and successfulness of contest. Room size +- 25 ft x 30 ft but if it looks too cramped, it can be larger. Estimate 10-15 people max in it at a given time. Entrance is shown on left side of room Exit is either through same or opening at top left of room No windows or other entrance / exits On display within room will be +- 20 posters – they do not need to all be on the perimeter walls. I am attaching 10 illusion samples for illustrative purposes. If you can work them into the CAD drawing, that would be a bonus. I am thinking about a few hanging displays dotted throughout the room, possibly hanging on chains from the ceiling. I am open to all ideas. There will be 5 interactive illusions that will require some kind of table top that is accessible for kids There will be distorting/fun mirrors in one area - 5-6 total mirrors There will be 2 x interactive Opti Illusion floor (see this weblink for demo video http://www.optimusic.com/opti-illusion.) Space needed is +- 3 by 5 ft I am looking for ideas of room design and color themes for walls and floor, and lighting I am leaning towards a lot of white but with black and white mixed in, tied in with optical illusion theme, but open to all ideas.
The interior of wooden houses
Hi! I urgently need to make the visualization of the interior of three houses. It's actually quite simple. All you need to do is just apply the material of wood in the interior (floors, ceiling, beams, etc.) In some images you will need to make the fireplace, as specified in the example. I attached 3 ready models with the camera settings. And all the other additions you will find in the attached file. In the example, there are all images which correspond to the name of each house. Unfortunately I can't give more information, because that's all I was given by the customer. But if you carefully view all of the attached material, everything is clear described.
Le Mans LMP1
I want someone to design a Le Mans Prototype, and I prefer the Toyota Hybrid TS030. This is a personal project to build it as a hobby. I want to build the body out of fiber glass by making (milling) molds with a CNC router machine using a 3D software. I am a fabricator, so it will be easier and preferable for me to build (weld) the chassis out of aluminum or steel, whichever you think will be more recommended for building a chassis.
