Buick Car Design Computer Models

car designThe Buick cars in Thunder Bay are typically our subject for discussion here and last post entered into the realm of design specific conversation.  When it comes to designing a car, we must understand that much goes in behind the scenes.  “To give the car it’s distinctive look, Buick and Opal created computer models to help them manage all of the proportions, the way the car looks from a distance, and how it looks among other vehicles (which they also generate as computer models).”  In addition to computer generated help during the design process, good old fashioned clay models are also sometimes constructed for a tactile approach to the design process.

Remember, too, that designing cars, such as your Buick cars for sale in Thunder Bay ON, is a total process, not a one and done concept.  “One example had to do with how the TourX has a lift gate that integrates into the tail light – the version we see went through versions that led to a more emotional response. Another interesting design aesthetic – while the TourX is technically the same height as the Regal sedan, it looks much lower to the ground.”

The computer generated model proves especially helpful in practically all aspects of new car design.  “This visualization technique – creating models that are placed into virtual settings – goes beyond the design lab, though. Boniface says his team holds ‘clinics’ with prospective buyers to show them the computer models, asking them to pick their favorites.”  Stats are also utilized, according to our finding while researching new car designs on behalf of your Buick car dealerships in Ontario.  “This is a data-intensive exercise as well. The clinic participants provide feedback and then the rankings are weighted based on whether that person might have indicated they prefer a certain brand or have a bias toward a more conventional look.”
