The Flying Bike on the cloud 3DEXPERIENCE platform

The Flying Bike project has been successfully transferred within 3DEXPERIENCE platform for cloud.

The Lighthouse program is V6 solutions for the cloud , which enables teamwork in four locations in the Czech Republic.

Thanks to Cloud architecture was all part of the application server already installed and set up in advance. That greatly accelerated the onset of effective use of the Flying Bike project. Responses were relatively quick and the server part was very stable.

 

Jan Tleskač´s Dream Fulfilled: the Bike Officially Took Off on 12th June, 2013

Létající kolo oficiálně vzlétlo 12. června 2013

The first public and successful takeoff of the Flying Bike was made on Wednesday 12th June in the Letňany Exhibition Hall PVA, witnessed by a large number of journalists.

The „Flying Bike” took off, for the first time in public, in Prague at Letňany exhibition grounds. The author of the Bike is the Technodat Company, together with its partners Evektor and  Duratec which originally only designed the virtual prototype, exclusively with the assistance of the 3D software solution by  Dassault Systèmes.

“When working on the project, our main driving force was not profit or commercial interest, but the desire to fulfil our childhood dreams,” said Aleš Kobylík, a member of the managing board of the project and the director of the Technodat Company. “By means of a unique machine, our objective was to demonstrate the potential of Czech companies and modern industrial software, i.e. the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform by Dassault Systèmes.”

Dassault Systèmes technology allowed to design the virtual Flying Bike, to manufacture it, test it and to simulate the properties virtually before the physical prototype itself existed. Regardless of their location and even though they were several hundreds of kilometres from one other, all the creators of the “bicycle hovercraft” kept working with an identical set of data all the time. After considering different variants, the solvers of the project finally decided for the principle of a multicopter. The main force necessary for the Bike to take off does not come from the upward lift on the wings as is the case with a traditional aeroplane. The Flying Bike instead becomes airborne thanks to the static thrust of six horizontal propellers.

While the software tools were provided by the Dassault Systèmes Company, the Flying Bike project was realized by three innovative, purely Czech companies. Technodat, the provider of the 3DEXPERIENCE solution, was responsible mainly for management and coordination of the project, as well as its schedule and the budget. Duratec, a producer of bicycles, guaranteed the frame, security covers of the blades and also provided standard sourced components of the bicycle. Evektor, an engineering company, partnered on the design of concepts, the construction solution of some functional groups and selected suitable driving units, batteries and blades.

The Flying Bike took off thanks to kind support of the joint-stock company ABF which provided the premises at the PVA EXPO PRAHA exhibition grounds for testing the Flying Bike and for a press conference.

Technodat held PLM Forum 2012

Record attendance, a busy schedule, beautiful weather, friendly, warm atmosphere, great wine and delicious food, this was a ”PLM Forum 2012″.

Traditional professional seminar and at the same time meeting customers of Technodat and users of DS products “PLM Forum 2012″ held on 30 and 31 May in the „Vinařství U Kapličky”.

Highlight of the program was the presentation of the “Flying bike”  (in a virtual prototype), which originated and developed on the platform 3D/PLM Dassault Systèmes V6 and collaboration between Technodat, Evektor a Duratec.
