Motorcycle manufacturer picks Autodesk Inventor
Autodesk has announced that Wild West Motor Company, a manufacturer of some of the most exotic high-performance motorcycles in the world, is replacing its existing CAD platform in favour of Autodesk Inventor software.
With the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, Wild West engineers can now design, visualise and simulate a complete product with a single digital model created in Inventor software. Inventor will enable Wild West to streamline its design and engineering process to accelerate product development for its high-end motorcycles and gain competitive advantage.
Wild West has long used Autodesk Alias and Autodesk Showcase products as critical components of its design processes. Alias software enables the company to drive innovative design and bring style into signature motorcycle models such as the Dragoon, Vigilante and Gunfire. With Autodesk Showcase, the company is able to create accurate, highly realistic images of its motorcycles to better evaluate multiple design variations and communicate ideas to key stakeholders.
"Wild West is on a mission to revolutionise motorcycle design, and we are pleased to go along for the ride," said Robert ‚Buzz' Kross, senior vice president, Manufacturing Industry Group at Autodesk. "By adding Inventor software to its product design and engineering processes, Wild West will be able to fully utilise Digital Prototyping to design and build more innovative products in less time."
Inventor software's interoperability with Alias and Showcase means that Wild West has an unbroken digital pipeline for all stages of the design process. Wild West is currently at work on a new high-end motorcycle model, every element of which-from the assembly to the molding-will be accomplished using Autodesk software.
