DIY Plans on Disc for Resellers & the Educational Community
Using the Latest in Computer-Aided Design Technologies *
Whether you are a retailer or distributor, or an educator or a parent, you can light the fires of imagination using the world’s most exciting DIY projects on disc. These advanced-technology plans and instructions are presented in an easy, user-friendly way that requires no previous knowledge of modern CAD systems. And the necessary software is free. If you can browse the Internet then you can enjoy these presentation technologies on disc.
As a parent or an educator, what a great way to stimulate interest in 21st century technologies. When you build a bicycle, a high-speed PWC, a hovercraft, or even a car, modern design technology is seamlessly integrated so learning happens as a natural result – as a by-product of CAD presentations that make it far easier to understand the construction details. Cross-section and transparent views, and even taking measurements in 3D space are just a click or two away. No more old-fashioned printed plans to get dirty and torn, and you are no longer limited to one viewing angle Understanding modern design systems then becomes a natural by-product of having fun with your family project because you’re no longer held back by outmoded presentation methods. It’s like putting on a new pair of glasses that let you see in far greater detail. And these plans and instructions on disc include traditional line drawings, plus an instruction manual that runs in a web browser with technical/engineering details and links to vendors too.

For the academic community, our expanded educational series will offer native 3D files and teaching aids.** Project-based teaching has been used at many schools as a way of teaching a number of skills simultaneously through participation in specially-designed projects – projects that stimulate students’ enthusiasm and creativity and guide them through learning experiences. We are proud to announce that the XR3 Hybrid is the centerpiece of the alternative energy and physics program at Phoenix Bioscience High School And using our original Ground Hugger XR2 plans as a basis, students at Prince Alfred College in South Australia went on to win in category the 2001 Australian World Solar Cycle Challenge. The solar assist feature was developed by students as part of their learning experience. Projects like these provide students with invaluable learning experiences for a variety of engineering, product development, project management and funding skills. These experiences, along with those of others in the academic community, have served as a model for the entire educational series of products that are now under development.
