PostSubject: New rear bumper   Thu Jul 12, 2012 2:36 pm

Did get a question on our new rear bumper, the Red Eye project. It is very close. We would have had it out about 3 months ago, however with our move, new CAD software switch etc. it pushed out the available dates. I am so against the Microsoft mentality of sell the beta's then fix the known issues. This is a good example of what is a simple looking product, being actually very complex to develop. If price was no issue then it would be easy. But we want the price to be very reasonable. Hard to do with a swing out system but we are on the right track. It will be a very worth it in the end with all the extra time we have put into it.

I have learned a valuble lesson to never have a large project going when you move your business! Same applies switching from one CAD software to another. Used Alibre Design for the past 8 yrs, but on this project ran into issues and needed a more advanced tool set. We did the huge (for us) price jump into SolidWorks and its amazing, but now I am learning it!
