The maximum allowed machine size is 5 foot by 5 foot by 5 foot. Machines exceeding these dimensions will incur a 10-point penalty. Machine dimensions are measured from the floor up (even if machine is placed on a table) and will include the entire machine structure and all components. Only electrical cord may be outside the parameters.
It is important to note that the size of the machine DOES NOT depict the success of the machine. Smaller machines are equally successful and easier to transport. Smaller machines may also be displayed on a tabletop. Larger machines will be displayed on the floor.
