Paper or Plastic (er.. carbon composite) ??

For Mechanical Engineering student Paul Bischof, a dream came true; he turned his hobby into a profession, replaced paper and glue with carbon and software. He’s now part of the Infiniti Red Bull racing team, helping design the new RB10 race car; fine tuning the car for every race, even creating new composite parts in NX.

Mr. Bischof’s race car models are amazing! Check them out, and see how they led to his dream job making real race cars. So cool! 

If you have sharp eyes, you will spot the NX software in use by the Red Bull designers.
