We are experts in Strak.
What is strak?
Strak was invented in ship and aircraft construction to build harmonically shaped and aerodynamic bodies.
The strak of a car describes all visible surfaces of interior and exterior considering all aesthetically styling aspects and technical requirements. In automotive industry strak is an well-established part in the product development process, because strak brings together the needs of all departments in this process and translates this into a 3D Class A model.
There are three main tasks for the straker to do:
- transform a finished styling idea (scan, 3D design model) under consideration of all technical requirements (of engineering, assembling, production, laws, ...) into a Class A surfaced production ready car.
- improvement of a technical-functional object with focus on aesthetical and optical aspects
- translate a 2D styling idea (sketch, e.g.) into a 3D CAD model
Improvement of technical surfaces by changing the crowning of the surfaces and change technical fillets into curvature fillets.
Improvement of gap principle by optimizing of flush condition and gap sizes and changing into curvature fillets.
Improvement of gap graphic by changing the crowning of the main curves and give the radius a curvature connection.
