The cloud-based, cognitive design platform is said to be capable of automatically generating additive manufacturing (AM) for high performance, lightweighted structures within mission critical applications in industries such as aerospace and automotive.
“We are thrilled to launch CogniCAD, the ultimate generative design and lightweighting tool that the entire industry has been waiting for,” commented co-founder and CTO Michael Bogomolny. “The technology represents the convergence of advanced topology optimization techniques, computational geometry, infinite computing power in the cloud, and artificial intelligence.”
Paramatters is aiming to speed up the entire innovation cycle with the CogniCAD software, having developed advanced algorithms designed to enhance AM capabilities. This includes a new cloud-based, generative design platform that compiles lightweight and metamaterial lattice structures based on size, weight, strength, style, materials and cost as specified by designers or engineers.
“We are transforming the entire design-to-manufacturing process by making it autonomous and automated to generate high-quality, optimized lightweighted designs,” said Bogomolny. “Our proprietary generative engine automatically delivers high performance and quality designs with minimal user input. As a result, the entire design cycle is compressed from days to hours, and raises the quality of generative designs compared to what can be achieved manually.”
CogniCAD works by first importing CAD files into the platform, and then defining loading and design criteria. Within minutes, users can obtain generative design verified and ready for 3D printing. All of ParaMatters’ generated designs can be directly produced using additive manufacturing.
Demonstrations of the new software will be presented at Techniplas’ booth #9100 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, after the ParaMatters joined Techniplas’ open innovation program. The move to join the program has been made to strengthen the company’s growing automotive focus.
