REDUCE COST

By reducing development time and designing the right structural parts first time round 

Number2.png

REDUCE WASTE

By properly assessing weight, loading conditions, space and geneating the ideal structural solution for your assembly 

Number3.png

BETTER PEFORMANCE

By optimising the part for its intended use case as opposed to overengineering in the absence of proper validation

Optimisation Options

  • Maximise stiffness

  • Maximise natural frequency

  • Remove excess material

  • Target volume reduction

Manufacturing Constraints

  • Adhere to manufacturing constraints

  • Take into account max thickness

  • Enter pull direction, table direction, overhang prevention and protected depth depending on the manufacturing method.

Validation Simulation

  • Validate the final design of the optimised shape to make sure it still meets project requirements

  • Produces Faceted data with clean up tools if 3d printing

  • Convert to CAD data if required with one click

Interactive Result

  • See results live as the optimisation process is running and stop at any point

  • Run with different load cases and run simulataneously.

Lattices

  • Create custom infills for parts to reduce the amount of material being used when 3D printing.

  • Select your thickness and select from preset lattice structure options or create your own.
