#31: I would like to submit my design to your compitation using AutoCAD 2D/3D formats, with some raw detailed views / screen shots / direct exports of my architectural project, is it possible?
You can only submit JPEG files, and as long as the files you are submitting are in valid JPEG format you can submit anything (image exports, screen captures etc), however we must note that although it is possible to submit any output this way, we do not recommend you to do so. It is not a good idea to join the competition with screen shots / raw detailed views or any other type of direct exports without artistic touch; do not let the computer to present your design for you as there is also a scoring for presentation (with a little weight on voting, but can make a difference anyway) and every design should be well presented and clearly understandable and this is only possible with human interaction by preparing good presentations. If you do not want to make any post-production touches, we suggest you to join with several renders plus some sectional drawings instead of any Autocad screen shots / drawings / exports. This does not apply just to Autocad but all other computer aided design software.
