TiSport, LLC, set out to create a superior class of titanium wheelchairs. To achieve this goal, the company needed to implement and sustain a high degree of design and manufacturing automation.

R.W. Fernstrum & Company

While the company had used AutoCAD 2D software, the traditional design tool in the shipbuilding industry, it moved to Autodesk Inventor software in 2005 because of a discounted upgrade. Fernstrum sought to validate its 3D selection, however, by evaluating Inventor against other 3D CAD software.
