“New links must be forged as old ones rust”
Today's bonus blog post is a success story for a company called Enviroguard, who make spill containment systems for batteries, such as the ones found in solar, rail, and switchgear applications.
They use the Autodesk Product Design Suite to do all those "buzzwordy things", like "improve efficiency", "increase time to market", "reduce errors". Buzzwords! Ding! Ding! Ding!
And of course, these are all good things we all strive for!
What I really like about this story, aside from it involving the "home team", is how Enviroguard is combining the different tools in the Suite.
They use Autodesk Inventor with iLogic customization to create new designs, Autodesk Showcase to create the visualization for the design, and Autodesk 3ds Max to create very realistic looking instructions for installing the systems.
And finally, Autodesk Vault keeps track of the data as it flows around the system, making sure that design are being used, and reused, as efficiently as possible.
But I'll let Enviroguard speak for themselves with the video below. I think they have a unique approach to create a truly "holistic" system.
