Institute of Transport Technology and Engineering Design is a part of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. In 2013 there was built a Laboratory of Generative Engineering Design. Its basic task is research of newly invented methods of vehicle components prototyping.
The workplace has hardware and software equipment at the level of top prototyping offices of world automobile producers. There are 11 working stations with CATIA V5, V6 software and appropriate modules or extensions installed. There is operated 3D FDM printer for the prototyping of rigit and precise components; vacuum casting device, which is able effectively cast to silicone moulds; or optical 3D scanning device.
We are a team of students, researchers and professionals from industry. The main representation in the field of engineering design is from the Institute of Transport Technology and Engineering Design and company DYTRON. The main representation in the field of artistic design and styling is from the Institute of Industrial Design, Faculty of Architecture. Weather some of us are dealing with the method of generative design for a short time or some of us are proficient experts in this field, we all complement each other to be successful.
