spherene AG, based in Zurich, Switzerland, has announced the upcoming launch of sphereneRHINO Public Beta, a cloud-based plugin for the Rhino 7 design and 3D modeling software. Expected in Q3/4 2023, the plugin is the first integration of ADMS (Adaptive Density Minimal Surface) technology in the software, and looks to provide designers with the opportunity to experience a new kind of parametric structure firsthand.

The cloud-based solution will allow users to easily design parts while simultaneously specifying where to integrate ADMS, resulting in a significant reduction in design time and highly efficient parts for manufacturing.

“Integrating spherene’s ADMS into my Pedorthic Information Modeling workflow was remarkably straightforward. This underlines the significance of interconnected computational design systems, driving my enthusiasm to explore further possibilities in my field,” shared Daniel Petcu (@PedorthicArt).

ADMS are a family of aperiodic minimal surfaces that can be configured to create versatile components with maximal strength and minimal material usage. The architecture enables users to control various complex structural features.

One use case of the ADMS algorithm is spherene’s earlier design of a qualitative interpretation of a femur’s intricate internal structure with the sphereneRHINO plugin, before building the part on a Rapidia Conflux 1 metal Additive Manufacturing machine.

ADMS components are efficient and adaptable to any enveloping geometry and multi-physics boundary conditions. They exhibit excellent heat exchanger characteristics, controllable elasticity, and can be made open-pored or closed.
