Autodesk Software Helps Enable Cost-Effective Electric Bike Design at Pi Mobility

Hear Marcus Hays of Pi Mobility discuss how they use Autodesk software to more efficiently design the Pi Cycle, a new generation of sturdy, long-lasting electric bicycles. Pi Mobility was selected as the Autodesk Inventor of the Month for December 2010. In the early stages of design, Pi Mobility used Autodesk Inventor software to produce a 3D digital prototype of the Pi Cycle that showed that by increasing the diameter of the bike's tube by a half an inch, the company could immediately save $335,000. Extrapolated over several years, this discovery translates into seven figures worth of cost savings — a discovery that puts Pi Mobility on track to achieve profitability a full year ahead of schedule.
