Digital prototyping supports complex, multi-party design, manufacture and construction projects
Digital prototyping includes the 3D models, visualizations and simulations that can be the single source of truth for complex offshore developments coordinated amongst multiple, independent and highly specialized contractors.
T-Rex Engineering and Construction, Houston, Texas, uses digital prototyping at every stage of a complex subsea engineering development for 3D mechanical design, product simulation, tooling creation and design creation. "Autodesk Inventor enables us to do what we do best," says Gary Sidwell, T-Rex president, "create truly cutting-edge designs quickly and cost-effectively. It gives us - and our clients – confidence to push the envelope."
Besides supporting collaboration via cross-discipline processes, digital prototyping translates design into manufacture and construction. Prototype efficacy extends beyond construction, through operations to end-of-life, delivering benefits to:
