American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Arizona State University
- Shortened product design by 12.5 percent
- Decreased design errors
- Tapped integrated SolidWorks Simulation capabilities
- Enhanced photorealistic rendering capabilities
We are the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Arizona State University (AIAA@ASU). AIAA is an organization comprised of leading members in the aerospace engineering field, as well as student chapters at colleges like ASU. We wanted to make a model of our Mars Transfer Vehicle concept on a computer, so we could refine, test, and finalize what it would look like inside and out.
Contacts in the aerospace industry recommended SolidWorks because of the short learning curve. The team decided on SolidWorks because of integrated SolidWorks Simulation's mechanical analysis as well as the short learning curve, which enabled us to get started right away.
