Full Story

Challenge:

In 2004, Russel Pescod, partner in ULPower Aero Engines (www.ulpower.com), was working on a helicopter project, and he was having a problem. The performance simply wasn’t what he and his collaborators had hoped it would be.“We needed more power, so we talked to an engine specialist,” Pescod says. “We found there were basically two routes to the power we needed. We could buy an existing engine, strip it, refit it and rebuild it, or, we could build our own engine from scratch. Ultimately, we decided to design and build our own engine because we could control all the variables.”


Solution:

With that decision made, Pescod began looking for a suitable CAD package to be used in designing the new aircraft engine. After much research he selected ZW3D. He says, “We chose ZW3D software for several reasons. One, we’re a small company with limited resources, so our choice had to be cost-effective. Two, ZW3D doesn’t skimp on performance; it had all the tools we needed, and then some. And finally, ZWSOFT was very supportive of what we planned to do.”
