Today’s Featured Sponsors

Ed Shadle at 3DEXPERIENCE North America Forum
Some creative uses for the forklift went into play this Saturday work party. The overhead crane in the semi trailer has had some traveling issues during the loading and unloading of the jet car. Long time use has worn the 2 wheels of the carriage assembly down to the point where they no longer roll smoothly down their rails. The problem at hand; how do we get to them and then what…a tricky operation.
The forklift was used to carefully pull the carriage just far enough out on its rails to be able to reach and remove the wheels. They were indeed well worn. Steve Green will be machining a new set at his shop, Eagle Machine Inc. in Abbotsford, BC, Canada.
Once the work was done on the trailer we had a little time to play with the roadster. Click on the YouTube video above.

This past week Ed Shadle and Keith Zanghi traveled to sunny Hollywood Florida for the 2017 North America 3DEXPERIENCE Forum. The two presented Challenging The World Land Speed Record and talked about how we will use 3DEXPERIENCE to bring the world land speed record back to North America. After the keynotes, Ed and Keith renewed friendships with the leaders of the company. The North American Eagle® project has had a long partnership with Dassault Systèmes. The team has been using CATIA for over a decade and are now moving to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform
As always, the team made a lot of new friends and called the three days a success!
