CogniCAD 2.1: ParaMatters updates generative design platform

CogniCAD 2.1 offers enhanced capabilities for loading conditions and optimization of build orientation

Generative design software developer ParaMatters Inc. announced the release of CogniCAD 2.1, an updated version of its software platform capable of automatically generating ready-to-print, high-performance and lightweighted structures for the aerospace and automotive industries, among others.

ParaMatters first officially launched its CogniCAD platform last year at Formnext 2018 where the startup attracted significant attention for its unique software capabilities. The cloud-based, pay-per-design platform is capable of performing a range of tasks that are beneficial to additive manufacturing, including autonomous topology optimization, parts consolidation and lightweighting.

The intuitive software simply requires users to import their CAD files into the platform and define load and design criteria. From there, the software generates optimized designs verified by built-in Finite-Element Analysis which are ready to 3D print in either STL or STEP formats.
