Alliant Engineering LLC
- Shortened design cycles
- Minimized prototype development costs
- Innovated the first load-bearing composite fuselage
- Validated landing gear dressings for the largest plane ever built
Alliant Engineering provides turnkey product development, engineering, and analysis services to leading aerospace, automotive, and medical manufacturers. The company needed robust, integrated product design and analysis tools to support its goal of becoming the premier product development and engineering firm for the industries it serves.
After investing in SolidWorks 3D CAD software as an original beta test site, Alliant Engineering acquired SolidWorks Simulation and SolidWorks Simulation Premium analysis software because of their robust capabilities, ease of use, and integration with SolidWorks. By implementing SolidWorks Simulation and SolidWorks Simulation Premium software, Alliant Engineering has shortened its design cycles, minimized prototype development costs, and achieved important aviation innovations, including the development of the Paracraft powered parachute’s load-bearing composite fuselage and the landing gear dressings for the Airbus A380, the largest commercial airliner ever built.
