Prototyping the prototype

Jean-Francois B, Firma Bohez BVBA 1 year ago

Project: Het ontwikkelen van een gerepliceerde versie van oude race iconen (die hebben meegereden in de 24H van Lemans). En deze voorzien van moderne technieken die niet zichtbaar zullen zijn. David Truyens heeft ons bijgestaan bij de eerste ontwerp fase van het frame. Ook willen wij gebruik maken van Generative Design in dit project. In deze materie is David een echte expert, we hebben een professionele opleiding gekregen zodat we zelfstandig aan de slag kunnen met Generative Design. David is zeer gericht op de praktijk en weet waarover hij spreekt. Wij gaan in de toekomst zeker en vast meer gebruik maken van zijn expertise! En zijn alvast heel tevreden met de geleverde prestaties. Een echte meerwaarde binnen de organisatie.
