- Cut physical prototypes by an order of magnitude (1,000 percent)
- Supported development from concept through commercialization
- Reduced development costs
- Created revolutionary, first-of-its-kind product
ElliptiGO Inc. was founded to create a low-impact alternative for distance runners. By combining cycling and elliptical training technology, cofounders Bryan Pate and Brent Teal hoped to create a low-impact, elliptical system that could be ridden outdoors like a bike instead of remaining stationary in a gym. To refine the concept for this new type of product, the company needed access to advanced 3D design and simulation technology.
ElliptiGO chose SolidWorks® Premium software to develop the elliptical bike because it is easy to use, provides the integrated design simulation and visualization capabilities needed to refine the concept, and supports manufacturing requirements. By selecting SolidWorks software, ElliptiGO cut the number of physical prototypes required by an order of magnitude (1,000 percent), supported its development efforts from concept through commercialization, reduced its development costs, and created a revolutionary, first-of-its-kind product.
