Frustum Inc. Founder and CEO to Present at IDTechEx 2017

Session to focus on advances in freeform geometry that enable topology optimization for CAD

BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - May 8, 2017) - Frustum Inc., a pioneer in functional generative design and topology optimization software, today announced that its CEO and Founder, Jesse Coors-Blankenship, will be presenting at IDTechEx Show in Berlin on Thursday, May 11th. The session will illustrate advanced freeform geometry methods and how they enable topology optimization to be more fluid, faster to design and support more accurate printing through additive manufacturing. Coors-Blankenship's presentation will also demonstrate this process for designers, providing examples of how this approach supports concurrent engineering principles.

"Design and manufacturing are undergoing a renaissance, which can be felt across just about every industry today. Airplane parts are being 3D printed, saving fuel costs and improving production. Designers are breaking free of clunky, angular design restraints to create more fluid, stronger and lighter components," said Dr. Jon Harrop, director, IDTechEx. "Our mission is to bridge the innovation gap between leading technologies and the companies that need them, so it's exciting to offer our attendees a look at the innovations driving this renaissance."

Coors-Blankenship will discuss how technological advances in CAD integrated freeform geometry allowed for topology optimization to be introduced to the designer. Integrating traditional technologies and topology optimization in Frustum's cloud-based software, Generate, benefits additive manufacturing by eliminating uncertainties that would normally be involved in these designs.
