Frustum, focusing on functional generative design, announced the commercial availability and latest release of its core technology, TrueSOLID. The technology works alongside traditional CAD to drive 3D manufacturing.Frustum’s TrueSOLID volumetric geometry kernel allows for the blending of indeterminate generative geometry to traditional surface-based CAD with engineering precision. This 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; and
- kernel-integrated mesostructures (lattices).
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.
