Authentise announced a distribution partnership with Siemens PLM Software with the goal of making shape search technology more broadly available to the digital manufacturing industry.

Siemens PLM’s shape search technology, Geolus Search, will be embedded in Authentise’s 3Diax API platform for additive manufacturing. The resulting module is designed to make shape search easy to implement in custom, integrated workflows from design to production. Knowledge associated with historical designs, such as previous production notes, material choices or intellectual property rights, can be identified based on the geometry, not keywords. The module can help determine candidate designs for AM, and recognize designs that share similar compensation models and parameters, saving time in the design process. It also enables users to identify designs that are similar to internal designs, so they can be shared externally for quotes, reviews, or more transparency and communication. In addition, the module can be used to help safeguard companies from breaching intellectual property regulations by scanning any parts against blacklists.
