Automotive Design

Perfect shapes with 3D technologies

The design process of a new car model takes several years and involves numerous steps to manufacture a real car from the first concept idea. Modern development processes harmonize the vision of perfect design with economic and functional requirements. For this, car designers and production engineers must work hand in hand, requiring perfectly handcrafted clay models on the one hand and precise digital data on the other. GOM technologies combine state-of-the-art hardware and intelligent software and deliver the required precision to quickly translate innovative design concepts into digital data for CAD/CAM software.
