Frustum, focusing on functional generative design, announced the commercial availability and latest release of its core technology, TrueSOLID. The technology works alongside traditional CAD to drive 3D manufacturing.
Frustum’s TrueSOLID volumetric geometry kernel allows for the blending of indeterminate generative geometry to traditional surface-based CAD with engineering precision. This technology allows for manual and procedural modeling of highly complex mechanical parts that have manufacturability built in.
Included in the new version of TrueSOLID are the following enhancements:
- multi-part assembly optimization;
- new optimization modes; and
- kernel-integrated mesostructures (lattices).
“The TrueSOLID volumetric geometry kernel was designed to be a fundamental component of next generation 3D design software and to enable design for additive manufacturing. The intention is to bring about the transformation of CAD design from deterministic to generative,” says Jesse Coors-Blankenship, CEO and founder, Frustum. “Moving towards a single-click solution for product design, our technology grants engineers and designers the freedom to reimagine how parts can be designed for a new generation of complex products made with 3D manufacturing.”
TrueSOLID is the underlying technology powering Generate, Frustum’s flagship product that provides control over complex geometry, handling intricate and rugged designs and workflows that support additive manufacturing, milling and casting. The technology is currently being commercially licensed to Siemens PLM software, serving Siemens NX and Siemens SolidEdge customers.
