Alibre Design Transforms Harley Fan's Ideas

Alibre Design transforms Harley fan’s ideas into Sturgis crowd’s hottest new business


Richardson, TX-November 28, 2005-Prior to purchasing Alibre Design parametric solid modeling software, Joe McGlynn had no 3D modeling experience, only a passion for souped-up hot rods and choppers. Learning Alibre Design in his spare time, he turned his ideas into designer motorcycle parts, and started Crime Scene Choppers, the hottest new boutique business for custom bike mechanics.

Although McGlynn had a lot of experience in fabrication and was no stranger to computer technology, he had no prior experience in CAD. “I just didn’t have an opportunity or cause to look at this kind of technology. During my trial period with Alibre Design, it was immediately obvious to me how powerful it is.”

The software allowed McGlynn to turn his Harley concepts into manufacturable realities, and turn his day job into just a day job. With Alibre Design as his co-pilot, he was able to learn 3D modeling on a part-time basis, thanks to the product’s straightforward user interface and the software maker’s generous training and support programs.

The modeler gave McGlynn user-affable features and full functionality to flesh out his new ideas. Alibre Design also exported his models to other CAD formats, so he had no trouble sending his plans to CNC machinists, rapid prototyping shops, and other fabricators he found online as well as those he worked with locally.

Additionally, the realistic renderings of his parts demonstrated his chopper artistry to prospective online customers. Alibre-produced models of his unique creations, with such names as the Hard-Ass Solo Seat and the Speedster Gas Cap, can be seen and purchased at www.crimescenechoppers.com.

“I could not have built this business without Alibre,” says McGlynn. “I would not have been able to articulate my ideas as well as I have without the power that Alibre Design gives me.”
