‘Prototype This’ — on the Discovery Channel

By DE Editors

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.

SolidWorks software is the 3D CAD product of Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. (DS SolidWorks). For more information, visit SolidWorks.
