Access our cutting edge tools.
Formflow is a desktop solution that suggests the right topology and material(s) based on design requirements.
It's achieved through an objective-driven process where the user can define functional requirements for different parts of model.
- Windows standalone application
- User friendly interface
- Multi-material Topology Optimisation
- Direct print file export
- Supported Simulation:
- Linear Elasticity
- Heat Conduction
- Supported Analyses:
Perfect if you need an intuitive standalone application, allows you to use your favourite CAD package to configure the optimisation.
Supported on Windows 8 or newer.
Rhino & Grasshopper Plugin
Fireflow enables exploration of discrete and gradient functional material allocations, with the ability to leverage a wide range of simulations and optimisation processes available in Grasshopper.
Users can allocate custom materials, or blends to the paths informed either by manual selection or advanced simulations. Given the flexibility afforded by Grasshopper, Fireflow is a powerful choice for non-standard applications.
Great for Rhino users who want to leverage multi-material 3D printing with extrusion based machines.
Tested on Rhino 6.0 and Grasshopper 1.0.007
Composite 3D Printer
Machine code for this can be exported directly from Fireflow and used to run the machine.
Perfect for demanding applications which require custom blends or varying properties.
Materials scientist may choose to use our powerful Python API which gives full process control and real-time feedback from 10+ sensors.
