After GrabCAD design contest, Frustum partners with Siemens PLM on topology optimization

Frustum, a developer of advanced topology optimization software for additive manufacturing has partnered with Siemens PLM, one of the most active tech giants in the industrial AM world, to enable Siemens NX customers to design fully optimized parts, ready for 3D printing, as well empower them to move beyond the boundaries of traditional CAD geometry.

Engineers and designers using Siemens NX with Convergent Modeling technology in combination with the newly integrated capabilities from Frustum will be able to blend topology optimization with traditional CAD data, overcoming a traditional hurdle in such workflows.

Empowering Siemens NX Users

Designers will be able to discover and deliver novel, manufacture-ready parts and products with optimally balanced performance, structural strength and weight in a fraction of the time it would traditionally take.

“Frustum’s unique technology, now fully integrated with NX and its unique Convergent Modeling technology, fits with Siemens’ approach and vision to free industrial designers and engineers to create the next generation of parts and products that closely match customer needs, reduce energy consumption, and drastically reduce the cost and time to market for these innovations.”

Frustum is an innovative software company that is entirely focused on developing the latest design and tools through its Generate software platform. Frustum – Generate with topology optimization helps designers deliver on parts designs that are demonstrably better, lighter and stiffer by allowing for quicker results.

Since 2002, I have built up extensive experience as a technology journalist, market analyst and consultant for the additive manufacturing industry. Born in Milan, Italy, I spent 12 years in the United States, where I received my Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree. As a journalist covering the tech industry - especially the videogame industry - for over 10 years, I began covering the AM industry specifically in 2013, as blogger. In 2016 I co-founded London-based 3D Printing Business Media Ltd. (now 3dpbm) which operates in marketing, editorial, and market analysis & consultancy services for the additive manufacturing industry. 3dpbm publishes 3D Printing Business Directory, the largest global directory of companies related to 3DP, and leading news and insights websites 3D Printing Media Network and Replicatore. I am also a Senior Analyst for leading US-based firm SmarTech Analysis focusing on the additive manufacturing industry and relative vertical markets.
