Frustum Updates TrueSOLID for Generative Design

BOULDER, CO, Apr 6, 2018 – Frustum, the leader in functional generative design, announced the commercial availability and latest release of its patent-pending core technology, TrueSOLID. Built to help designers and engineers deliver better products faster with fewer errors and lower costs, the technology works alongside traditional CAD to drive 3D manufacturing that operates at pace with the emerging on-demand economy.

A first in the industry, Frustum’s TrueSOLID volumetric geometry kernel allows for the blending of indeterminate generative geometry to traditional surface-based CAD with engineering precision, enabling additive and other manufacturing techniques to realize their full potential. In addition to creating high-quality designs that deliver weight and material savings, this one-of-a-kind 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
  • 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.

As a leading player in the additive manufacturing industry, Frustum is attending and exhibiting at Rapid + TCT 2018 in Fort Worth, Texas from April 23-26th. At the conference, members of the team will be available for conversations and demonstrations of its core technology and product at Booth #2523.

About TrueSOLID

TrueSOLID is the only commercial geometry kernel in the industry that can generate ready to manufacture topology optimized designs including mesostructures (lattices) and manufacturing constraints, eliminating the need and cost of part redesign resulting in significant savings in weight and design time. Powering Frustum’s flagship product, Generate, TrueSOLID enables users to capture manufacturing intent early in the design process and output designs optimized for additive manufacturing.

About Frustum Inc.

Frustum empowers engineers to push the boundaries of what’s possible by combining the power of generative design with precision engineering. Through its flagship product, Generate®, Frustum makes generative design truly functional, enabling users to create manufacture-ready parts and products with optimally balanced performance, structural strength, and weight in a fraction of the time it would traditionally take them with CAD alone.
