As also being a regular CAD user (buildings and construction type things) I would agree with Sunny's comment. If I am drawing something and there is an error, it is my fault not the computer programme.

no name, or should i call you captain birdseye, lotus 30? that goes back a few years. and i registered with my correct first name, but purposely did not use my surname, so as to reserve some privacy. i dont boast about my previous accomplishments in the sport, but i will say that over 40 years does provide a bit of experience, although only in historics now!
sunny and andrew. yes cad is a tool, but for f1, there is no BOUGHT programme, and everything is input from scratch. that is what i meant by the input programmer. he may have gotten some stress info wrong and when the designer was using the cad, he may not have been aware if incorrect programming. but, "computer design" was at fault!

Ha ha ha!

3 twits disagree with FACTS.

Must be johnsonsevilwikipediaqicheesywotsittwin. He no longer has the stones to post under his own name and uses a multitude of names and doesn't have the intelligence to voice an opinion.

Not willing to enter the CAD debate, can not judge. However, what is damn sure is that either Virgin or Nick Wirth are not loved by the masters of www.formula1.com : in the 5th of March article "The 2010 Season Preview - Part Three" you can find at the end a deliberately accusing sentence which, and here I judge, I do perceive out of context. QUOTED Designing the VR-01 wholly by computational fluid dynamics and without any recourse to a wind tunnel was a bold move, especially for a newcomer.But that is something to applaud. Losing the front wing in the car's first test at Jerez - a problem that also beset the Simtek at Imola when Roland Ratzenberger was killed in April 1994 - isn't UNQUOTED
