Frustum, Boulder, Colorado, USA, has announced the commercial availability and latest release of its patent-pending core technology, TrueSOLID™. Developed to help designers and engineers deliver better products faster, with fewer errors and lower costs, the technology works alongside traditional Computer Aided Design (CAD) and reportedly aims to help Additive Manufacturing keep pace with the emerging on-demand economy.

According to Frustum, TrueSOLID’s volumetric geometry kernel allows for the blending of indeterminate generative geometry to traditional surface-based CAD with engineering precision. As well as creating high-quality designs that deliver weight and material savings, the technology is said to allow manual and procedural modelling of highly complex and manufacturable mechanical parts.

The new version of TrueSOLID includes multi-part assembly optimisation, new optimisation modes and kernel-integrated mesostructures (lattices).

Jesse Coors-Blankenship, CEO and Founder, Frustum, explained, “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.”

“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,” he concluded.

TrueSOLID is the underlying technology used to power Generate®, Frustum’s flagship product, which provides control over geometrically complex designs and workflows for AM, milling and casting. The technology is currently being commercially licensed to Siemens PLM software, serving Siemens NX and Siemens SolidEdge customers.

Frustum will attend and exhibit at Rapid + TCT 2018 in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, April 23–26. At the conference, members of the team will be available for conversations and demonstrations of Generate and TrueSOLID.
