What are the three exceptional applications of CAD for CAR DESIGN?
Today, automotive designs and manufacturing is not only about designing aesthetic and appealing aerodynamic CAD models. Instead, it is focused on making design and manufacturing processes more accessible to the stakeholders through efficient product lifecycle management systems. Let’s have a look how CAD have enhanced the process of car designing and made it more accessible:
The use of APS in New Ford GT40s
APS utilizes SOLIDWORKS and simulation tools for designing Ford GT40s to cut the cost of designs by 50%. The tool reduces the assembling time by 40% which in turn decrease the overall development cost and make it more accessible.
Ford manages the maintenance cost tolerance
Ford Company has employed Sigmundworks, Sigmund ABA and SOLIDWORKS to keep up the tolerances. These plug-ins greatly help to identify the design bugs, which are addressed and treated before they result in significant monetary losses.
JL Race cars simulating and modeling
Since beginning JLE has been using CAD- 2D, AutoCAD, and 3D SOLIDWORKS platforms. These tools have efficiently reduced the design cycle’s cost by 70%. Moreover, JLE has standardized its product lifecycle by using SOLIDWORKS designs, analysis, and product data management solutions.
Overall, with these CAD tools the efficiency, performance, and accessibility of the automotive industry can be increased manifolds.
