NX Is the Design Tool of Choice for Team Setting Out to Smash World Land Speed Record and Capture the Imagination of Future Engineers
BLOODHOUND SSC is a three-year project to design and drive a supersonic car capable of breaking the world land speed record. Despite its long history of engineering, Britain has seen a sharp decline in the number of STEM graduates in recent years and the BLOODHOUND SSC project aims to boost program interest by showcasing the engineering endeavor as much as its technical success. To master this aim BLOODHOUND SSC chose Siemens PLM Software. BLOODHOUND SSC deployed NX software for product design. Using a simplified parametric model taken from NX, BLOODHOUND SSC was able to do 55 car models in eight weeks, a pretty impressive turnaround.
