3-D design software from Dassault Systèmes SA helped the U.S. Winter Olympic team shave milliseconds off the speed of its four-man bobsled, Night Train 2, which is currently competing in the Sochi games in Russia.

Geoff Bodine and Bob Cuneo, the designers of the bobsled, used Dassault's SolidWorks set of tools to create their design.

"We knew we needed an accurate and precise 3D design that could give us a realistic and cost-effective way to test and tweak Night Train 2 prototypes. The solution was SolidWorks," said Bodine.

"SolidWorks helped us design using a lighter material and creating multiple 3D prototypes of the bobsled on the computer so we could get it just the way we wanted it before we began building and manufacturing it."
