Title: Tool analysis for design of complex prototype products
Authors: Wallin, Mattias

Abstract: Infotiv is a technology consulting company operating in several cities in Sweden with headquarters in Gothenburg. They also conduct certain in-house projects, including a collaboration with RISE where the vision is to develop a self-driving vehicle in the form of a go-kart. Infotiv has recently started a mechanics department where they offer services and consultants in mechanical design. They therefore have a need to find a suitable tool for solid modeling. The market for tools for solid modeling is today very widespread and it is expanding more and more. The aim of the project is therefore to make an analysis, which tool is best suited for prototype contexts with complex geometries in small to medium-sized companies. Once the most suitable tool has been identified, a verification of this is performed by designing consoles for equipment for the go-kart mentioned above. After a market research and testing of candidates, it was determined that Fusion 360 was the tool that best suited the target group due to its low cost and high user friendliness. With this knowledge, an education was made to ensure a smooth transition of the existing tool at the company to Fusion 360, without major knowledge gaps.
