Design Systems, Inc. continues to support a North American automotive OEM with our multi-disciplined engineering team. DSI was tasked to provide the design, prototype sets and validation quantities of Paint Shop Production Aids for a new vehicle program. Utilizing our extensive experience in 3D design and specifically in this case Inventor software, DSI’s mechanical team led the design effort for these production aids. Furthermore, working with our partner Turnkey Systems Integration for the prototype builds and validation testing, we were able to provide a complete one-stop shop for this effort. Production aids included fuel door fixture, hood handles, hood supports, front / rear overslam units, and more. The quality and efficiency of this work has led to DSI performing production aid design and prototype build services on many programs since our initial effort.
