Design Consultancy, Design Q, Implements ICEM Surf Software To Support Its Product Development Processes

Southampton, UK. 14 July, 2005. – ICEM Ltd., the leading developer of surface modelling, surface quality analysis and design visualisation software, has announced that the rising, UK-based design consultancy, Design Q, has implemented the ICEM Surf software suite to streamline its product design and development processes.

Design Q, which was responsible for designing the acclaimed Upper Class Suite for Richard Branson’s Virgin Atlantic airline, as well as the body and interior of the Jensen S-V8 and C-V8 luxury sports saloon car and coupe, has put ICEM Surf at the centre of its product development process. In addition to providing real-time, high quality surface modelling and design visualisation facilities at the design stage, ICEM Surf is also being used to support Design Q’s in-house prototype production and short-run manufacturing capabilities.

“Our decision to implement ICEM Surf was for straightforward business efficiency reasons,” said Gary Doy, director and co-founder of Design Q. “The software’s surface model creation, direct modelling and real-time design visualisation facilities enable us to do away with the traditional clay model approach to design wherever possible and go straight to a digital model which we can manipulate directly, interrogate and visualise to a high quality, in real time. This saves time and reduces costs, which enables us to provide our clients with a more timely and cost-efficient service.”

“We are delighted that Design Q, with its clients coming from a variety of industries, such as automotive design and manufacturing, aircraft interiors and consumer durables, has chosen to implement ICEM Surf,” said Kate Mills, global marketing director, ICEM Ltd. “Their implementation is a good example of the way ICEM software supports the entire design-to-production process for products that rely on high quality, complex free-form surfaces for their customer appeal.”
