Application now available on the PTC Onshape App Store.

SyBridge Technologies, a company focused on design and manufacturing solutions, has launched SyBridge Studio, a manufacturing insights application, now available on the PTC Onshape App Store.

This advanced tool integrates a suite of design for manufacturability (DFM) features, drawing on SyBridge's expertise in injection mold tooling and production-grade additive manufacturing. Leveraging logic and data-driven artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms built on a database of manufactured parts and tools, the app provides users with insights to optimize designs early, assess production tradeoffs, and achieve results in cost and speed.

SyBridge is a portfolio company of Crestview Partners, a private equity firm with approximately $10 billion of aggregate capital commitments.

SyBridge's new application integrates directly into Onshape, the industry's cloud-native CAD software, providing an extension to the existing toolset available to Onshape users. The app's user-friendly interface and features offer an enhancement to the design process, enabling engineers to produce manufacturable designs efficiently.

Features of the SyBridge Studio include: 

  • Automated Design for Manufacturability (DFM) Checks: Quickly understand manufacturing issues and how to mitigate them with 80+ DFM checks across manufacturing processes: injection molding, CNC machining and multiple 3D printing technologies.
  • Injection Mold Action & Insert Identification: Visualize parting directions and identify various common tooling actions like slides, pins, inserts and lifters.
  • Part Thickness Analysis: Visualize material distribution with a full-field colored heatmap on your part CAD to easily identify thin, thick, or non-uniform walls.

In addition to these features, SyBridge is actively developing future enhancements to the application's capabilities with a roadmap including cost insights and analysis tools, a material recommendation engine, and the ability to purchase parts directly from Onshape via SyBridge On-Demand.

“Going from an industrial design to physical parts is a time consuming processes, typically requiring multiple iterations between different technical domains. With the launch of SyBride Studio, we are excited to provide designers and engineers with a tool that not only makes this process easier and more efficient, but works directly in their CAD environment,” says Byron J. Paul, CEO of SyBridge Technologies. 

“We are thrilled to welcome this app to the Onshape App Store,” says Jon Hirschtick, co-founder and chief evangelist of Onshape. “This app provides our users with invaluable tools to get feedback as they are designing, ultimately helping them to achieve their business goals more effectively.”

Onshape users can easily access and install the new application directly from the Onshape App Store. For more information about SyBridge Studio and to download it, visit the Onshape App Store.
