DIGITAL JOURNEYS (part 2)
In the previous article, we have heard 3 amazing stories from Black Diamond, Princess Yachts, and Firewire Surfboards. Obviously, NX has been contributing to the success in Climbing gear, Yatch and Surfboard industry. There is no limit for NX so let’s see what NX has done in Automobile and Golf industry.
Electra Meccanica - Three wheel, one passenger electric car
Vancouver-based Electra Meccanica designed, simulated, and manufactured its new three-wheel, single-passenger SOLO electric car in two years. The three-wheel car was produced by a lean team of young engineers—and Siemens NX and Simcenter software.
Michigan Solar Car - University of Michigan Solar Car Team
After its closest finish to first place in history, the University of Michigan Solar Car team decides that instead of taking the safe path of incremental innovation, their best chance at victory depended on a radical approach to vehicle design. Using Siemens PLM software for development, manufacturing, structural analysis, and aerodynamic simulation, Michigan Solar Car heads to Australia with Novum, a disruptive “small car” innovation.
Callaway Golf – Golf gear
Callaway Golf has accelerated design by prototyping and testing its entire clubs with the help of a Teamcenter innovation platform, NX CAD, and CAM and CAE software. Today, Callaway develops clubs in months that used to take years—and they’re leading the industry’s innovation race. The result: golf clubs those are lighter to swing, faster on arrival at the ball and easier to hit the sweet spot.
We learned how Black Diamond helps climbers like Tommy Caldwell complete their goals. Just as Tommy completed the toughest climb in history, we will continue to climb as well. Innovation is a mountain which has no peak, which has no end, but only has possibilities.
