Bugatti Reverse Engineering latest news
Updated 16 March 2010.
Stuart Brown of 3d Engineers develops further applications for his innovative and sophisticated three dimensional computer aided design software technique.
As a result of his success he has been commissioned to undertake work on several other projects - not just automotive and has lectured on his techniques to Derby University engineering students.
Whilst studying engineering, Stuart undertook a detailed study one of the most successful and iconic vintage racing cars using the latest sophisticated 3D CAD (three dimensional computer aided design) software. He has demonstrated his project at several seminars at the Bugatti Trust and elsewhere.
Drawings of the many hundreds of parts needed to create the Type 35 Grand Prix Bugatti were scanned and converted to three dimensional images using SolidWorks® 3D CAD software. The components are then built up into assemblies to make up the complete car.
Hugh Conway, the Trust Chairman said, “The Trust in its commitment to the study of the works of Ettore Bugatti offers encouragement to young people to take up careers in engineering and design. CAD software is an integral part of many university engineering and design curricula.
The successful project to create and analyse the Grand Prix Bugatti demonstrates the importance of the creative and individual approach of Ettore Bugatti and provides a bridge to the modern computer design processes. We are delighted that the project proved successful and has opened the door for Stuart to new opportunities.”
