Circuits are all around us. They’re in our smartphones, cars, TV's, and even clothing -- and they’re the focal point for the Circuits Contest! Any new project that involves circuitry is eligible and there is a special judges’ prize for the best project that uses any of the three Autodesk Circuits simulators (Breadboard, Arduino, or PCB).

Prizes are provided by Autodesk Circuits and there’s a lot of awesome stuff on the line! Enter to win a 3DR Solo Drone with GoPro Hero4 Silver, Sparkfun Inventor’s Kit, Littlebits Synth Kit, Arduino kits, and lots more. We hope this theme sparks some fun ideas!

Care to embed your Autodesk Circuit designs in your Instructable? Click the “Share & Embed” button on the read-only detail page, copy the code, and paste it right into your Instructable. That’s all!

How It Works

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Sep 26, 2016 and Nov 21, 2016 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Circuits Contest 2016. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
