Dassault Systèmes develops modeling and 3D simulation softwares, contributing with SolidWorks licenses that are used in all our projects.


Using Solid Works, one of the leading 3D modeling softwares in the market, the team focuses in modeling its aircrafts as precisely as possible. By modeling all part's details thoroughly, modifying the materials to better fit our standards and planning the construction process step by step, the team is capable of achieving results compatible with a real-life experience.

Next Limit Technologies provides simulation technology for a wide range of applications in the fields of computer graphics, science and engineering. It has conquered a vast reputation for it’s high quality simulation softwares. The company has been helping AeroRio’s team in the main stages of the project, contributing with licenses for the softwares XFlow and Maxwell.


  • XFlow: provided by Next Limit Technologies, XFlow allows the team to simulate with accuracy  the aerodynamic surfaces of  the aircraft, using the Lattice Method –Boltzmann. This state-of-the-art tool is one of the major boosters for the team’s success in these last years.
  • Maxwell Render: One of the best softwares available in the market when it comes to rendering. Next Limit Technologies has released this software for the team, allowing us to reach new levels of perfection in render’s presentation and disclosure of aircrafts.





TENAX provides custom pieces of steel that constitute most of the payload used in the competitions. Steel is used by the team as cargo due to its density. Several teams and some PUC –RIO’s labs seek this company when they are interested in acquiring materials for their projects.

GRABCAD  ensures access to its collaborative tool, allowing several team members to organize themselves in an efficient manner during the aircraft's modeling step. Thanks to this contribution, the team has online backups of all projects  involved, allowing a greater safety for essentials archives.
