Altair acquires Gen3D

Spo­leč­nost Al­tair zís­ka­la Gen3D, a startup from the University of Bath in the UK. Gen3D is a pioneer in introducing the implicit geometry method to describe highly complex geometries, such as lattice structures in additive manufacturing (AM). Gen3D technology uses next-generation implicit modeling techniques to quickly create complex geometry that is impractical using traditional body boundary representation (BREP) approaches.

This allows you to design components simply by entering functional requirements for the part (loads, mounting holes, protection zones, fluid flow channels, etc.) In addition, this technology automatically filters component geometries that could cause subsequent manufacturing problems.

The Gen3D generative design tool allows engineers to quickly create complex designs while minimizing the risk of printing failures. Designers use it for applications such as energy absorption, heat transfer, filtration and more, in industries such as aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, healthcare and energy.

The technology will be integrated into Altair Inspire software, an intuitive and powerful family of software products that enables simulation-based design throughout the product development lifecycle, from concept to reality. When used early in the design process, Inspire technology enables both performance and manufacturability designs and allows its users to research, develop and manufacture high-performance products in a single, intuitive development environment.
