Frustum’s 3D Design Software, Generate®, allows for interactive generative design that automatically produces manufacture ready parts in a completely parametric CAD environment.
Expands Corporate Headquarters, Customers, and Leadership Team
Frustum, Boulder, Colorado, USA, has announced the commercial availability and latest release of its patent-pending core technology, TrueSOLID™. Developed to help designers and engineers deliver better products faster, with fewer errors and lower costs, the technology works alongside traditional Computer Aided Design (CAD) and reportedly aims to help Additive Manufacturing keep pace with the emerging on-demand economy.
We weren’t just checking out artwork and the latest 3D printers and applications or attending press conferencesand keynote at last week’s RAPID + TCT in Fort Worth – 3D software was also on display at the conference.
I’ve recently thought that the future of 3D design lies in an automated future, and Frustum is another option for doing so.
Generative design and 3D printing should be a symbiotic pair, with each needing the other. Consider:
Colorado-based generative design company Frustum has announced the commercial release of the latest version of its TrueSOLID technology, which powers its flagship Generate product.
2018 3D Printing Industry Awards nominee Frustum Inc. has released the latest edition of its generative design platform TrueSOLID™. Working alongside traditional CAD software, such as Siemens NX and Siemens SolidEdge, TrueSOLID™ helps designers and engineers optimize digital models for additive manufacturing, milling and casting.
Colorado-based Frustum is best known for its flagship Generate platform, a cloud-based topology optimization solution, which Siemens began using last year with a commercial license to decrease the complexity in additive design. Generate helps make generative design functional, so users can quickly develop manufacturing-ready parts and products with optimally balanced performance, weight, and structural strength.
Ten years ago, design software users lamented that some of their designs might never see the light of day because the complex surfaces, structures and beams they could depict in pixels via their CAD software, could not be machined, molded or manufactured in the real world. Now, the tables have turned. Some delicate features and structures that could be produced with 3D printers may prove impossible to model in a standard CAD software package.
