What should I ask the winning designer to supply?

During the handover process, you should request the following information from a designer before awarding the prize.


  • Native CAD files: Any native CAD files used for the designs in case you want to make future design modifications.
  • Neutral (standard) CAD files: Generic file type that can be opened with most CAD software to allow for future design modification with different software.
  • Images/other files: Request any other file types that you need, such as .png, .jpeg, PDF, vector, and font files (if applicable).
