It’s almost time again for CES, the biggest tech show of the year where companies from all corners of the technology sector will be bringing out their latest products. For ParaMatters, that means the first time the company will be showcasing its CogniCAD 2.0 Topology Optimization software in North America. ParaMatters, which manufactures autonomous topology optimization, parts consolidation and lightweighting software, introduced the original CogniCAD software at CES last year, and now it will be showcasing the second generation.
“We are thrilled to announce the first North American showcase of CogniCAD 2.0 at CES,” said ParaMatters Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer Dr. Michael Bogomolny. “After over a year of working with industry leaders to fine tune this second-generation technology, we are now able to provide the most powerful agnostic CAD-to-CAD generative design and lightweighting tool available on the market today.”
CogniCAD 2.0 builds on their cloud-based, cognitive design computational platform. The software is capable of automatically generating ready-to-3D-print, high-performance, lightweight structures for automotive, aerospace and other mission-critical applications.
“We are transforming the entire design-to-manufacturing process by making it possible for our cloud service to autonomously generate high-quality, CAD-agnostic and ready-to-manufacture, optimized lightweighted designs in minutes to a few hours,” said Dr. Bogomolny. “Our proprietary generative engine automatically delivers high performance and quality designs with minimal user input. As a result, the entire design cycle is compressed from weeks to hours and raises the quality of generative designs compared to what can be achieved manually.”
The new software speeds up development and features new, advanced algorithms to enhance overall digital thread and additive manufacturing capabilities, including a new cloud-based, generative design platform that automatically compiles lightweight and metamaterial lattice structures on demand, based on specifications entered by designers and engineers. These include size, weight, cost, strength, style and materials.
The software also offers as a design service meso-structural capabilities that deliver biomimicry design for optimal structural infills that are mission-critical for certain additive manufacturing processes.
“We are taking full advantage of the convergence of advanced topology optimization techniques, computational geometry, artificial intelligence and infinite cloud computing power to deliver the most powerful, affordable and impactful tool that unleashes the full potential of design for additive manufacturing,” said Avi Reichental, ParaMatters Co-Founder and Executive Chairman.
CogniCAD 2.0 is available through ParaMatters’ website as a cloud-based, pay-per-design service. Several subscription and enterprise-based models are available. The software works by first importing CAD files into the platform, then defining loading and design criteria. Users can obtain generative designs within minutes, verified by built-in Finite-Element Analysis and ready for 3D printing in both STL and STEP formats. All ParaMatters-generated designs can be directly 3D printed.
ParaMatters will be at CES 2019 at the Techniplas booth, LVCC, North Hall – 9320. Interested attendees can stop by and learn more about what’s new in CogniCAD 2.0.
