Microcar will speed with Autodesk visualisation

Gordon Murray’s T25 microcar is being designed with the help of Autodesk Showcase Professional, AliasStudio and Autodesk Maya

.

Gordon Murray is best known for his F1 Road Car and Mercedes-Benz SLR design with McLaren. His new company, Gordon Murray Design was launched in July, along with his plans for the Type 25, which is so named because it is Murray’s 25th car.

However, unlike his McLaren designs, this is to be an ultra economical, environment friendly and affordable city car, which will be 400kg lighter than similarly sized conventional vehicles. In addition, the firm says it is also developing, “a design and prototyping process that brings CAD to a level of efficiency unprecedented in the automotive industry” in which the Autodesk solution will enable the graphics section to produce concept sketches, 3D models and photo-realistic renderings. Showcase Professional, in particular, will provide an environment in which the team can present and review design options with high visual quality that accurately represent real-world materials, lighting and environments, and interact with these in real time.
