SCROLL TO SEE HOW WE SUPPORT OUR CLIENTS AND THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE
THROUGHOUT THE CONCEPT DESIGN PROCESS
Contechs provides a complete vehicle design service, with the highest levels of expertise in exterior and interior design.Its designers are fully skilled in appropriate software systems (including Alias and ICEM) and have significant experience in delivering programs for global OEMs.
The range of scalable design consultancy services includes the development of comprehensive design briefs; product benchmarking studies that integrate customer requirements across design, product and manufacturing; theme selection materials; and the preparation of colours and trims. Contechs can present 3D form reviews in its virtual reality to refine concepts for design appraisals and approvals.
Contechs will work with vehicle design studios to transfer the designers’ ideas for interior and exterior styling into the computer environment, translating original drawings to introduce critical detail about the quality, integration and physical properties of the vehicle surfaces, ensuring they are perfectly smooth and interface correctly.
Securing the correct surfaces with CAD is fundamental to defining the vehicle package within which all its constituent elements, from powertrain to cabin fixtures, will need to be accommodated.Even the slightest change in a design’s fundamental surfacing can have an impact on the associated surfacing in areas such as the vehicle’s structure, closures and floor pan.
With its expertise in deploying appropriate contemporary software systems, Contechs is able to ensure any technical surfacing issues can be identified and fully addressed at the CAD stage, before any physical prototyping takes place.
Contechs can provide a complete studio support service to make sure its clients’ design intentions are fully captured.
It will ensure the design is completely feasible, from meeting any legal requirements to being physically viable for manufacture. This feasible design can then be frozen in the form of a CAD reference model. Contechs operates as an integrated service provider liaising directly with the client’s studio, providing expert input into key areas such as packaging and feasibility for release.
Contechs provide expert staff to carry through the design from initial pictures and renderings, to the creation of a physical clay model that can be scanned for computer design analysis.
STUDIO INTEGRATION SERVICES
Contechs engineers will make sure the CAD model is accurate and up-to-date, so that the accuracy of the vehicle package is not compromised. This process will establish the primary architecture of all vehicle systems and ensure they are in harmony with each other within the complete vehicle package.This further ensures suppliers have the precise data required with which to determine correct component volume and size.
