Use of CAD is becoming more and more important in automotive components design. In particular, integration with CAE and CAM techniques allows to obtain good results in terms of both design quality and time saving.
The paper presents examples of CAD applications to chassis components design of new Fiat compact car. First, use of CAD in suspensions calculated preliminary phase is illustrated; then, integration with CAM techniques is presented, in order to obtain fist prototypes of front and rear suspensions components.
