As the designer of the first aircraft to break the sound barrier, Bell is well-versed in innovation. When VIVE virtual reality hardware and Computer Aided Design (CAD) software allowed designers and engineers to make real-time changes to virtual models it was an “Aha!” moment for Bell’s creative team. With virtual mock-ups and interactive modeling, Bell was able to save millions of dollars in prototype production costs and create a full-scale model of the futuristic FCX-001 in just 6 months – a process that usually takes 5-7 years.
