Thule Virtual Roof Racks

Thule, a well known company when it comes to auto roof racks is planning to give a fresh air with its future line of products, by choosing to expand the use of the SolidWorks suite of software.

According to the supplier , the software is now helping it develop a new foot piece for the carrier, that attaches to the car. Featuring an integrated torque gauge, the new roof rack ensures a tight, but not exaggerated fit.

It contains a simulation application that allows for the virtual testing of a given product. Usually, when a new roof rack is developed, it is physically attached to a vehicle and taken out on a dirt track, where it is put to severe testing, including intentional overloading.
