• M Arie Kurniawan from Salatiga, Indonesia, awarded first place prize;
• Eight winners selected from nearly 700 entries across 56 countries;
• Through open collaboration, bracket design modifications to improve fuel and cost savings.

The redesigned brackets reduce engine weight and fuel consumption. M Arie Kurniawan, based in Salatiga, Indonesia, won the first place prize of $7,000. The balance of the $20,000 prize pool will be awarded to the finalists capturing second through eighth place.

The top ten bracket designs were additively manufactured at GE Aviation’s additive manufacturing facility in Cincinnati and subjected to rigorous load testing, at GE’s Global Research Center in Niskayuna. Testing parts to failure was performed to ensure the winning designs meet the highest quality and performance criteria. Loading brackets on jet engines play a critical role: they must support the weight of the engine during handling without breaking or warping.

GE Executive Director of Global Innovation Steve Liguori said,“At GE, we know innovation can come from anywhere. This challenge tapped into the ingenuity of the GrabCAD Community to unleash new solutions to tomorrow’s challenges using additive manufacturing. By applying GE’s scale and expertise to open innovation, we can continue to grow the ecosystem of designers, engineers, materials scientists, and other partners to redefine the industry and drive real results for our customers.”

GE and GrabCAD, working closely with digital strategy firm Undercurrent launched the Design Quest in June 2013, drawing a record number of entries via GrabCAD’s community of engineers and designers, with nearly 700 entries from 56 countries.

Hardi Meybaum, CEO of GrabCAD said,“Our Community really responded to this real-world engineering challenge from GE. There were an extraordinary number of submissions, from around the world, because engineers want the chance to design something that may make it into production and solve a real problem. GE's Jet Engine Bracket Design Challenge exceeded expectations and shows its commitment to seeking innovation through open engineering and collaboration. It's the way of the future, and we love that it's happening on our platform."
