An Oxford University spin-out is tapping into the power of PTC®’s latest design software to help it develop new propulsion solutions for use in future electric aircraft.
Qdot Technology has chosen to use Onshape®, a cloud-native product design solution, to help it with the design and prototyping of new products for use in its high-performance cooling technologies that help to take the heat out of batteries.
The start-up had to find a way to equip its people with product design technology and the subscription model for this solution made it easy for the company to only pay for the number of seats it needed.
Importantly, the fact PTC utilises the power of the cloud to run the software meant that all engineers had access to the latest designs and could make live alterations – perfect for internal collaboration and, as commercialisation moves closer, for working with other members of the supply chain.
