CAD user editor, David Chadwick, a member of this year’s judging panel, said: “Because of the pandemic and how it has modified people’s working patterns, the judging panel took the opportunity to get together on Zoom, and that enabled us to discuss the most technologically impressive or interesting entries.

“Most of the entries are of high technical quality, have been produced after intensive research or exhibit some exhilarating creativity. Like previous years, one of the most striking things about the entrants was their diversity of origin.”
