Software company Frustum has developed Generate, a suite of software products that it says enables engineers to design and develop better geometries through topology optimization. According to the company, designers can use the software to generate designs with optimized topology in less time, allowing for more rapid delivery of parts designs that are ready for manufacturing either through additive or traditional manufacturing. The product is being released in beta test with a limited purchase planned for July 2016.

The Generate software grows material between the given design features to make optimally stiff and lightweight structures for loading cases. The smooth and blended surfaces are said to reduce weight and minimize stress concentrations, thus enabling designs to be ready for additive manufacturing without the need to manually redesign. The flexible software enables individual and corporate-wide use. Several designs can be developed and optimized in parallel thanks to support for usage in the cloud. According to Frustum, Generate is capable of cutting weeks or even months out of a development cycle.  F
