Who uses Alibre products?

Businesses and individuals in every industry and in nearly every country on Earth use Alibre products to power their design process.

ADES - Madagascar

Every year in Madagascar 120,000 hectares of forest are cut down each year, with 80% of that lumber being used for cooking. Combating deforestation in the region starts with better technology and education. That’s why Dagobert Frobel, also Co-Director Madagascar, started designing solar ovens in Alibre Design.

CNC Clear Cut

Paul van Niekerk was making steel parts for the automotive industry in South Africa when he realized he needed a plasma cutter, but couldn't afford one. What else could he and his son Kevin do but learn Alibre Design and build the first 5 axis plasma cutter in Africa?

c-Link Systems, Inc

When it came time to design the Forager Omni-Chassis, Bill wasn't about to go back to using his drafting table and t-square, but he definitely didn't want to shell out big bucks or spend a ton of time learning a new program.

HG Building Design

HG Building Design's most recent innovative structure design is a submission to redesign the autostrada over the Polcevera River in Italy. Bends in the structure make for beautiful accents in this design, and also serve a purpose: carry the load.

Gingerbread Homes

David decided to start Gingerbread Homes - creating themed tiny homes for ultra-efficient living while bringing some whimsy to the lifestyle. Each one is designed to make great use of a small space.

Rolling Motion

Traction drives have long been used to transmit power, but Pawloski’s RMI Traction Drive utilizes rolling motion to eliminate friction and inefficiencies with 6 moving parts. See how they designed and patented this crazy efficient drive.

Beeline Mowers

Vern spent a quarter of a century designing, building, testing, using, and perfecting his invention. Learn about his journey to reinvent the riding mower and to patent a unique Zero Turn Radius (ZTR) mower – The BeeLine.

Stoltz Mfg., LLC

Stoltz’s heavy duty construction style and ability to react quickly to customer demands are quickly making the company an industry leader in the farming and construction industries. See how they meet deadlines and innovate.

Bad Dog Cycles

Bill Price isn’t a regular guy. He’s a guy that thinks the world needs a 3500cc motorcycle with over 300 horse power and a 6 inch bore. This thing is absolutely massive, just like Bill’s vision to dominate this niche market.

Linn Audio

Silent Wings

From the time Bob Carlton was five years old and his parents took him to see the Thunderbirds perform at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, he dreamed of an adventure in the air. Now he designs jet-powered gliders.


Modular Packaging Technologies makes automatic packaging systems for specialty medical devices. Malnar designs the table-sized equipment himself at MPT’s San Diego-based facility, which handles all of the manufacturing in-house.

String Theory YoYo

Yo-yos seem like toys, but there is a lot of physics going on in terms of getting an optimal one. Learn how String Theory performed a cross-sectional weight distribution analysis to get the weight perfect for the maximum spin time.
