Why ParaMatters ?

  • ParaMatters has built a manufacturing software platform designed in capability for industrial functionality that has integrated design through inspection for customers digital factory needs.
  • Our software can fit into the manufacturing operation, and adapt to single product functionality by offering generative design/optimization, additive manufacturing, and inspection as standalone products, or an integrated suite of products.  
  • Paramatatters has addressed the siloed factory and bridges the gap between subtractive and additive manufacturing needs.
  • The ability to adapt a unified user interface gives the operations team the ability to learn once and apply many disciplines of the operational needs to the tasks at hand.
  • The digital factory is central in building our technology solutions which are agile and can quickly be adapted to many hardware vendors based on our parameter driven capability.
  • Leveraging existing software already running in your factory is one of the foundational design considerations established in our software, this allows many participating application vendors to integrate with our API’s.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Marc Fette, CEO of Composite Technology Center / CTC GmbH (an AIRBUS Company):
“The anisotropic behavior of 3D printed parts with fiber reinforcement allows us to gain weight potentials compared to conventional approaches. With our pre-existing methods of working, the design and sizing of 3D printed parts require multiple tools.

ParaMatters anisotropic optimization capabilities allow us to combine multiple stages into a single step, enabling us to cut development times by orders of magnitude and create stronger and more light weighted components”.

Marc Fette, CEO of Composite Technology Center / CTC GmbH (an AIRBUS Company)

We used various topology optimization solutions to lightweight designs for Additive Manufacturing.
ParaMatters software generated the best design quality we have seen so far. Design provided by ParaMatters met in service load margin of safety deflection OML (outer mold line) requirements and saved 24% weight on Inconel 718 and 8% over aluminum versus the baseline design. Design file was smooth and watertight, ready for AM and CAD compliant.

Dr. Frank Abdi (Chief Scientist and CTO at Alpha STAR)

We have run a number of projects with ParaMatters and have been impressed by the results. Their cloud-based platform, CogniCAD, is very easy to use and produces high quality optimized models that often can be printed straight away, without further modification to enable printability. Our customers have also been happy with CogniCAD optimized geometries as these have met key constraints for light weighting, volume reduction, mass saving and stiffness. We are looking forward to expand our partnership with ParaMatters.

Dr. Stephen Anderson, Renishaw AM Business Development, Manager, USA

With Design for Additive Manufacturing in mind, the emergence of tools like Paramatters will redefine the way we design components, and provide us functional insight as to the role a material usage within the available design space. The quality of the geometries produced, in conjunction with compliance and stress constraint criteria, has allowed us to design in a few clicks, parts that are quasi-ready to print with zero post-processing overhead.

Frederic Bussieres, Senior Structural Eningeer, INNIO (former GE Power)

Metal AM Journal (Vol. 5 No. 1 Spring 2019) –
Scalmalloy® is too expensive and design optimisation only makes sense in aerospace. True or false?

“… it is clear that, in the case of our original caliper problem, the optimisation effort of using Paramatters with Scalmalloy pays for itself in terms of recurring cost saving, even if only one part is produced.”

“Finally, we never expected that topology optimisation could pay-back on such low volumes of parts. This says something about the lean workflow implemented by Paramatters …”

Jon Meyer (APWORKS) and John Barnes (The Barnes Group Advisors)

We have tested different Generative Design tools in order to take advantage of all the design freedom that Additive Manufacturing allows you. To date, ParaMatters has provided the best results, obtaining lightened parts with improved mechanical properties.
In addition, ParaMatters has produced the most high-quality geometries which are almost directly 3D Printable, reducing the post-processing time and allowing us to satisfy all the boundary conditions. We are very pleased with this software and all the support we have received, and we are really looking forward to see all the new updates coming
