DestinyParts Designs for ‘Green Speed’ Using PTC® CoCreate® Explicit Modeling Software

Electric Vehicle Company Uses CoCreate to Design More Aerodynamic, Faster Electric Vehicles.

NEEDHAM, MA - PTC , The Product Development Company®, today announced that DestinyParts, a provider of electric vehicles and associated parts, services and technology, is using CoCreate®, PTC's explicit modeling software, to streamline its ability to test, refine and build electric vehicles.

From remote control hobbiest to today's electric vehicle technologist, Kirk Swaney, founder, DestinyParts, has been a long time advocate of CoCreate software. "DestinyParts is using CoCreate because it enables us to quickly respond to change requests from our customers," said Swaney. "CoCreate also allows us to model and refine design concepts before committing funds to a particular project, which gives us the chance to use that funding where it can drive the most benefit back into our business in order to be successful."

CoCreate enables DestinyParts to build clear, concise models that can be communicated to other electric vehicle designers, fabricators and simulation experts. This capability can minimize questions and delays throughout a prototyping process and enables DestinyParts to refine the models before they are built. DestinyParts also uses CoCreate as an investigative tool to review and confirm customer change requests, reducing costs associated with multiple change requests.DestinyParts expects significant growth for its business in the coming year, and the company plans to continue using CoCreate to design limited production versions of plush, sporty high-performance electric vehicles.

"DestinyParts can rely on CoCreate to deliver a flexible, scalable design environment that can grow with the company's business plans," said Justin Teague, general manager, CoCreate business unit. "CoCreate's strength in supporting a rapid and dynamic design process, particularly in the concept development stage, enables DestinyParts to be an innovator in electric vehicle technology."
