the-vw-microbus-gets-revamped-as-an-ev-with-generative-designed-parts

Volkswagen Group recently unveiled the results of a special project with Autodesk showing how technology is transforming automotive design and manufacturing processes. An engineering team from Volkswagen’s Innovation and Engineering Center California (IECC) reconceptualized and retrofitted an iconic 1962 VW Microbus with cutting-edge technologies such as electric propulsion and generative that are likely to play a big part of the auto industry’s future.

To rapidly design and manufacture the vehicle, the team leveraged generative design through Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software. This approach allowed them to input design goals into the software, which explored all the possible solutions and generated alternative designs.

 By, using generative design, the team was able to:

  • Create new wheels 18% lighter than a standard set
  • Re-imagine the steering wheel, external side mirrors and the support structure for the seating area
  • Reduce the overall development time to manufacturing time, shortening the 1.5 year-cycle down to a few months

The team focused on maximizing strength while minimizing weight. Autodesk collaborated with VW’s IECC to revamp several components of the electric vehicle. One of the critical aspects in designing electric vehicles is finding weight savings wherever possible, since the less an automobile weighs, the less energy required to propel it down the road. Reduced energy consumption provides greater range per charge, one of the critical considerations for consumers when evaluating electric vehicles.

The generative design process was created to allow the computer to meet strength requitements while using the least about of material. “Generative design approaches design challenges holistically, by considering the load cases, manufacturing methodologies, and materials simultaneously,” Paul Sohi, technology evangelist for Fusion 360 at Autodesk, told Design News. “Generative design is able to produce parts that are ready for manufacturing straight out of the tool.”

The IECC team applied generative design to the wheels of its 1962 Type 2 11-window Microbus, completely rethinking the structure because lighter wheels not only reduce the overall weight of the car, they also lessened the rolling resistance on the tires. The new wheels are 18 percent lighter than a standard set, and the overall development time from design to manufacture was cut from 1.5 years down to a matter of months. “Generative design is able to produce parts that are ready for manufacturing straight out of the tool,” said Sohi. “In the case of VW, this is what we did to ensure the wheel met all the requirements set by VW.”

Generative design was also used to re-imagine the steering wheel, as well as the support structure for the rear bench seating and the external side mirror mounts. “Different materials were used depending on the application. The wheels are cast in Alu T7, while the mirrors, steering wheel, and seat bench area are made of high-strength 3D printable plastics,” said Sohi.

Some of the components for the bus were created to provide a symbolic example of the power of generative design. While the steering wheel is not a particularly heavy component, it is the primary touchpoint for the driver. “People aren’t really accustomed to touching mounts or supports,” said Erik Glaser, principal product designer at the Volkswagen Group. “We wanted to put a generatively designed object in a place where people will touch it because not only is it intricate and beautiful, but it can also give a sense of just how strong these parts can be.”

The swiftness of the design and production of the VW bus suggests this form of manufacturing could possibly be rolled out for production. The question remains whether generative-design parts could be used in high volume production. If so, would the parts be produced by additive manufacturing or traditional manufacturing? “That’s a question for VW,” said Sohi. “They’ve expressed interest in the continued use of generative design for applications beyond what we worked on here, so hopefully this was the first step to many new things.”

  32. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  37. I am really impressed along with your writing skills
    and also with the layout for your blog. Is that this a paid subject matter or did you customize

  39. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Many
    thanks

  40. Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I’m completely confused
    .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!

  41. This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!

  42. Remarkable issues here. I’m very happy to look your post.

    Thank you a lot and I’m looking forward to touch you.
    Will you please drop me a e-mail?

  43. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and
    appearance. I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!

  44. It’s actually very difficult in this full
    of activity life to listen news on TV, thus I only use world wide
    web for that reason, and take the most recent information.

  45. I got this website from my pal who informed me about this web page and at the
    moment this time I am browsing this web site and reading very informative articles
    or reviews at this time.

  46. Usually I don’t read post on blogs, but I would like
    to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do it!
    Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thanks, very nice article.

  47. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  48. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit
    the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people
    are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something
    relating to this.

  49. It’s amazing to go to see this web page and reading the views of
    all colleagues on the topic of this post, while I
    am also eager of getting experience.

  50. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.

  51. Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using?

    Thanks, I appreciate it!

  52. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult
    time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!

  53. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to
    be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about
    worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also
    defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  54. If some one needs to be updated with most recent technologies then he must be pay a quick visit this web site and be up to date all the time.

  55. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of
    exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization.
    Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  56. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Superb work!

  57. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly
    enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  58. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say superb blog!

  59. Wow, incredible blog format! How lengthy have you been blogging for?

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it

    say. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
