Navman’s navigation device, the F20, was designed in New Zealand by specialist design consultancy, 4ormfunction. The company used SolidWorks 3D computer-aided design and manufacturing software, supplied by Intercad , to help them minimise the number of parts required without sacrificing function or aesthetics.

4ormfunction encountered the following challenges:

  • Design a fully functional product within a small casing
  • Bring the product to market faster than the competition
  • Enhance the commercial viability of the product
  • Reduce development cycle by improving collaboration with customer

SolidWorks3D computer-aided design and manufacturing software offered the following benefits:

  • Delivered a feature-rich product using the minimum number and size of parts
  • Helped the team collaborate quickly and effectively with each other, as well as with external suppliers and vendors, to meet the project’s tight deadlines
  • New product is easy to manufacture and assemble
  • Models and materials chosen work within the constraints dictated by the design
