‘To design, I use my favorite tool, SolidWorks’
CONCORD, Mass., USA, Oct. 15, 2008 – If you launched a reality TV series featuring engineers inventing the future one brilliant prototype at a time, what tool would you use for quick and easy design?
SolidWorks® 3D CAD software is the choice of ‘Prototype This,’ a new Discovery Channel series that brings viewers straight to the design in an island warehouse in San Francisco Bay. Viewers experience the design process firsthand as a team of engineers and PhDs bring inventions to life. ‘Prototype This’ premiers tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 10 p.m. ET with an attempt to prototype “a mind-controlled car.”
“Any great prototype starts with a great design, and to design I use my favorite tool, SolidWorks,” said Dr. Mike North, the team’s materials and mechanical engineering expert. “It takes a lot of headache out of the design process.”
In a video on the show’s Web site, http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/prototype-this/invention-central/invention-central.html, North uses SolidWorks to quickly design a ‘Prototype This” emblem and send it to the machine shop for instant production.
“The ‘Prototype This’ team takes full advantage of this powerful tool to design custom components for many of the builds,” the show’s Web site says. “The digital design files can be exported to the 3D printer, the CNC mill and other computer-controlled modeling or machining equipment.”
SolidWorks software is the 3D CAD product of Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. (DS SolidWorks), a world leader in 3D solutions.
“It’s exciting to see the fun and cool aspects of engineering revealed for the world to experience,” said Fielder Hiss, director, product management of DS SolidWorks Corp. “We’re thrilled that the ‘Prototype This’ team chose SolidWorks, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with.”
