SolidWorks (Concord, MA) 3D CAD software is the choice of ‘Prototype This,’ a new Discovery Channel series that brings viewers straight to the design in an island warehouse in San Francisco Bay. Viewers experience the design process firsthand as a team of engineers and PhDs bring inventions to life. ‘Prototype This’ premiers tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 10 p.m. ET with an attempt to prototype “a mind-controlled car.”
In a video on the show’s website, North uses SolidWorks to quickly design a ‘Prototype This” emblem and send it to the machine shop for instant production.
