Mastercam sponsors SAE International student design competitions by providing free software and educational support to participating teams. Andres Rojas is President of Panther Motorsports at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. He reached out to give us some information about the team and their recent participation in FSAE competition.
Andres shared that forty students participated in the past season, where they competed at FSAE Michigan. The team benefitted from the ability to create toolpaths to manufacture components using Mastercam. Panther Motorsports used our CAD/CAM to design their foot pedals and final drive sprocket. They also used Mastercam University to get more familiar with the software.
You can follow the progress of Panther Motorsports on Instagram and Facebook. Thanks to Andres for reaching out, and best of luck to Panther Motorsports in the future.
As part of our commitment to the future of manufacturing, Mastercam supports many educational initiatives and competitions to encourage student interest in technical disciplines. Student competitions like SAE International give students the chance to apply their knowledge and gain practical skills in design, engineering, and manufacturing.
