"Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire is simply the most thoughtfully architected product development solution on the planet," said Control Alt Design owner Walter Racyzynski, a veteran Pro/ENGINEER user since Release 10 of the software. "With Pro/E Wildfire, we found there was precious little to learn. Things fit together seamlessly. The logic is bulletproof. When working on a model, it seems that the model itself is telling the system how to interact with me," Raczynski noted.
Control Alt Design provides product solutions to consumer, medical, electronics and industrial goods manufacturers. Product development services include research, strategic product planning, industrial design, design for manufacturing, mechanical engineering, electronic hardware and software development, model making, prototyping and manufacturing assistance.
The company's award winning products include high-end audio and video components for Parasound, winner of the 2002 Consumer Electronics Show Innovations Award, Annual Design Review winner Xircom's network adaptor, Speedotron photographic Flash Heads and electronics, winner of the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award and numerous medical products.
"Before Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire, I used Pro/ENGINEER for all the engineering tasks and other packages for styling," Racyzyski said. "With the breadth of interactive surfacing in Pro/E Wildfire, I'm able to access a rich set of surface tools to leverage the geometry I've already created."
Surface modeling is almost always a requirement for our customers, Racyzyski adds. "Having a truly integrated modeler of this strength, fluent in solids and surfaces, has helped Control Alt Design get market-winning design to market -- fast."
Control Alt Design customers are also getting involved. "We have told our customers of the benefits of sharing work-in-progress with the seamless connectivity of Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire," Racyzyski said. "I know of no other CAD tool that promotes such a good night's sleep in a client."
