Eco rockets, mobility electric chairs, 3D foot simulation, and more, are possible in a virtual lab that cuts down on development time, lowers carbon footprint, and saves on prototyping.
This is the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab from Dassault Systemes. So far, the results have been very positive with less waste, less pollution, and a quicker development time frame.
Imagine a virtual lab where projects go from conceptualization to design, implementation, and virtual testing. The system takes into consideration recycling, spare parts management, and other ancillary matters.
Although some incubators do that, none to my knowledge have such a holistic approach as the Dassault Systemes 3DEXPERIENCE Lab. The real-life results are cuts in production time from 3 years to 3 months in some cases.
Some of the products and companies benefiting from the lab:
- An eco-rocket from Zero2Infinity.
- A gyro chair to help the paraplegic and others with mobility challenged, aptly name Gyrolift.
- A tidal power machine inspired by how fish swim, from EEL energy.
- A washing machine, L’Increvable, which in French means “never dies on you.”
- Those are some of the products the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab showed at CES this year.
By connecting designers, engineers, marketing managers and even consumers in a new social enterprise, the platform provides businesses and people with holistic 3D experiences to imagine sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing products, nature and life.
