ParaMatters Gives Live Demonstrations of Its Newest Generative Design and Lightweighting Software at RAPID + TCT 2019

Sponsored by Businesswire

a leading provider of manufacturing ready generative design, autonomous
topology optimization, parts consolidation and lightweighting software
solutions, announced it will publicly demonstrate its CogniCAD 2.1
platform for the first time at RAPID + TCT 2019 in Detroit.

CogniCAD automatically generates ready-to-3D print or investment cast
high-performance, lightweighted structures for aerospace, automotive and
other mission-critical applications both as a cloud-based service or
localized enterprise solution.

ParaMatters plans to demonstrate CogniCAD’s latest capabilities live
throughout the show at the XponentialWorks
booth #2117 at the Cobb Center in Detroit, May 21-23. The company
invites industry practitioners, qualified resellers and strategic
partners to experience how generative design is unlocking the full
potential of additive manufacturing and investment casting. To reserve

2.1 in action

The designs generated by CogniCAD 2.1 as a one-click solution are smooth
and watertight STL models ready for additive manufacturing or STEP files
that are compliant with all CAD systems. The new CogniCAD release offers
an expanded range of loading conditions, including thermal loads and
force/moments via remote points, and also to existing acceleration
(g-forces) and pressure. In cases when loading conditions are not known,
CogniCAD’s AI generates a robust design autonomously. This new and
advanced feature ensures that the design is tailored to the specific
application field (aerospace, automotive, medical or industrial design).

CogniCAD 2.1 comes with broader design for additive manufacturing and
investment casting with functional design capabilities, including
stress, compliance (stiffness) and deformation constraints. By
minimizing unsupported areas or supports volume, CogniCAD generates the
most optimal design and finds its ideal model orientation for additive
manufacturing while highlighting areas which require reinforcement.
Importantly, CogniCAD 2.1 allows users to select the desired combination
between resolution and speed of computation with the introduction of its
2X computational speedup. ParaMatters believes that providing the
optimal print orientation is a critical step towards applying generative
design to optimize the entire support structure and accordingly the
company is planning to release further generative support capabilities
throughout the remainder of this year.

“We are proud to make CogniCAD 2.1’s debut at Rapid+TCT,” said
ParaMatters Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Dr. Michael
Bogomolny. “This enhanced version of ParaMatters’ powerful agnostic
CAD-to-CAD generative design and lightweighting software provides more
options and greater flexibility for the most challenging of design and
manufacturing applications.”

“For the first time ever, engineers and designers have at their
fingertips a powerful design tool in CogniCAD that enables them to fully
unlock the potential of additive manufacturing and investment casting,”
said Avi Reichental, ParaMatters Co-founder and Chairman. “CogniCAD 2.1
accomplishes this with the impressive combination of advanced topology
optimization techniques, computational geometry, elastic computing power
in the cloud, and artificial intelligence.”

CogniCAD 2.1 works by first importing CAD files into the platform, then
defining loading (manually or asking CogniCAD AI to do this), and design
criteria. Users can obtain generative designs within tens of minutes
that are verified by built-in Finite-Element Analysis. All
ParaMatters-generated designs can be directly produced using additive

The CogniCAD 2.1 update can be accessed at as
a pay-per-design, cloud-based service. The company is offering several
subscription and enterprise-based models, and actively engages in
several complementary strategic partnerships.

ParaMatters continues to develop advanced algorithms designed to enhance
the entire manufacturing design and overall digital thread and additive
manufacturing capabilities. This includes a new cloud-based, generative
design platform that automatically compiles metamaterial lattice
structures on-demand, based on size, weight, strength, style, materials
and cost as specified by designers or engineers. Unique meso structural
capabilities, which are offered as a design service that delivers
biomimicry design for optimal structural infills, a mission-critical
requirement for certain additive manufacturing processes.
