    Bechtel Innovation Design Center at Purdue: Transcending Tradition

    With the goal of streamlining designs and processes within the Bechtel ecosystem, Swabey trusts students to run new CNC programs at full speed due to a mistake-proof method referred to as the digital twin method. The process begins by requiring students to import models from other software into Autodesk® Fusion 360® for manufacturing. It is only populated with the models of equipment and tools available in the center and contains tried-and-true manufacturing parameters, effectively creating a digital twin of the essential parts of the machining process.
