Just as Harley Davidson has a community of like-minded riders, SolidWorks has a community of engineers who are all cut from the same cloth.  And because they can’t leave well enough alone, they often create something extraordinary that the world didn’t even know it needed. Small Army travels the world finding these engineers and bringing their amazing stories to life.   To date, this series has featured nearly a dozen stories. Below are a few of our favorites. 

 

MOTOCZYSZ

This story is about Michael Czysz and his team and how they designed and built the world's fastest electric motorcycle. Their chosen CAD program to help them design it? SolidWorks.


DESIGN THAT MATTER

Jaundice is an issue that still greatly impacts South Asia and Africa.  Phototherapy -- shining a blue light on babies’ skin -- is the most cost-effective way to treat jaundice. However, every year 5.7 million infants in South Asia and Africa do not receive any phototherapy.  Discover how the team from Designs That Matters help to solve this problem by creating Firefly.  Introducing  the world's first device designed to treat newborn jaundice in the mother’s room in rural clinics.
