Pedal-powered boat uses Autodesk software

Written by: Autodesk | Published:

A team of British engineers relied on software from Autodesk to design an innovative pedal-powered boat for a 3,000-mile trans-Atlantic race to raise money for charity.

The Project Torpedalo team used Autodesk Digital Prototyping software, including Autodesk Alias Design, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Maya and Autodesk Showcase, to design, visualise and simulate the carbon fibre boat that will compete in the Woodvale
Challenge Atlantic Rowing Race 2011. The goal is to raise £250,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association and Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.
