Drawing on our competence in the field of design, we carry out new developments of complex systems for our industrial and project partners. Our competence begins in the idea and concept phase. We develop drafts and create detailed designs and drawings with a view to production. In our commissioned projects we use CATIA V5 as a standard, in connection with a CAD data management system and additional, specialized software. Models are of course constructed top-down. To quickly visualize results, high-quality virtual product representations can be generated, or real models and functional prototypes can be created using Fraunhofer ICT’s 3D printers and technical workshop.
