Six Flags Goliath Train Rendering

Six Flags New England has posted some great renderings of the new 4-across trains designed by Premier Rides that will be put to use on Goliath (formerly Deja Vu at Six Flags Magic Mountain) when it opens. One of the first questions in the comments is what type of software did they use to create the 3D CAD model? Well, to my untrained eye, it looks very much like a SolidWorks model.

One of the most common questions asked by aspiring roller coaster engineers is what software do roller coaster designers use. I already pointed out that Dynamic Structures use AutoDesk Inventor while it appears S&S Worldwide and Premier use SolidWorks.
