-- Crowdsourced video design series produces stroller that makes dads proud --

WALTHAM, Mass. – February 10, 2012 – Let’s Go Design Project 3 from Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. is a wrap!  Over the past several months, the Let’s Go Design team has worked with the SolidWorks community to design and prototype a “Hot Rod Baby Buggy” from the ground up. The buggy is now a reality with every element -- except the bolts -- designed using SolidWorks® software. The final episode, which went live in mid January, recaps the successes and challenges of the project and demonstrates the buggy in motion.  

 

The buggy is a vehicle built for dads, incorporating tank treads, a windshield and an innovative steering solution. The product had to fit on the sidewalk, be all-terrain, motorized, cool and—of course—safe for babies. The verdict in the series’ final episode: mission accomplished!

“Crowdsourcing is growing as a design philosophy, and the ‘Hot Rod Baby Buggy’ is a great example of how to succeed with collaborative design,” says Jeremy Luchini, SolidWorks Certification Manager and Let’s Go Design team leader. “We got a lot of great ideas from our viewers, and tackled some big challenges together, such as adhering the tank treads to the buggy. We’ll be discussing crowdsourcing at this year’s SolidWorks World in February, and would love to hear opinions on the outcome of this project, as well as viewers’ plans for crowdsourcing projects, at the show.”

All episodes of Project 3, along with previous projects in the Let’s Go Design series, including the Ultimate CAD Chair and a Multisport Practice Cage, can be viewed online at http://letsgodesign.tv/. Project design files are also available for each project. The “Hot Rod Baby Buggy” will be on display at SolidWorks World 2012, February 12-15 in San Diego.
