Frustum has launched a generative design solution to enable engineers to interact and iterate in real time with generative design models.
One challenge faced by engineers is to develop several optimized models that can enable them to find the best solution in a very short time (be it minutes, hours or days depending on the complexity of the models).
GENERATE® has been built on the patented generative engine TrueSOLID™.
With GENERATE®, Frustum wants to offer interactivity with generative design models. Engineers can now exploit artificial intelligence to shorten the time of designing products. According to the company, parts and products designed through this process are lighter, stronger and use far less materials than those designed using traditional CAD software.
The software combines topology optimization and simulation algorithms with real-time interaction to quickly produce ready to manufacture mechanical designs. It is functionally parametric and facilitates perfect blending of generative geometry to traditional surface-based CAD with engineering precision. The technology is currently being commercially licensed to Siemens PLM software and integrated into Siemens NX and Siemens SolidEdge.
“With GENERATE, designers and engineers can interactively specify the functional requirements of their design and the design will automatically be modeled to meet those requirements. The design output is functional and does not have to be remodeled in CAD,” said Jesse Coors-Blankenship, CEO, Frustum Inc. “We developed GENERATE on a multi-threaded architecture that was built from the ground-up to deliver faster design output by leveraging both CPU and GPU computing optionally. GENERATE will redefine how manufacturers get products to market, reduce materials costs and improve the overall performance of products.”
