3-D Model

3-D Model (70 pts)

The team will build a 3-D Model of a section of their city. The 3-D Model is a creative representation of a section of the SimCity computer design built to scale. The model does not need to look exactly like the computer design, but should show similar features.

The model may be no larger than 25" (W) x 50" (L) x 20" (H), including all supporting braces, materials hanging below or beyond the tabletop, and all fully extended parts, such as access doors and hinged pullouts. Rotation or flipping the model is permitted. At least one moving part such as transportation, power generation or communications must be included in the model. Power sources must be self-contained. Perishable or food items or animals are not allowed and material costs for the model and presentation may not exceed $100 (cash and in-kind). A strong emphasis is placed on using recycled materials and household recyclable items. Click here for the full list of model rules and you can see a summary of this year's rules. See model pictures for ideas.
