Shape Optimisation

We work with specialist software created for additive manufacturing optimised build shapes, which enables us to input a CAD design and optimise the shape of that design through finite analysis into the most lightweight possibility for that part. This is achieved by removing non-critical material, depending on the factor of safety required.

This is a game changer for naval architects, engineers and designers looking to achieve a lightweight component or part to improve efficiency and reduce cost, by removing unnecessary materials.

What’s more, Individual parts manufactured by traditional methods, can be combined, shape optimised and manufactured as one, this can see a weight reduction of over 50% and a strength increase of up to 20%.
