Additive Flow has launched its new design for additive manufacturing software, FormFlow built with what it calls ‘intelligent multi-functionality’ to simultaneously consider materials, process parameters and part geometry within user-defined constraints.
FormFlow optimises part geometry and material properties simultaneously with multi-physics algorithms for the right material and properties, in the right places – allowing for multiple materials and different geometry optimisations.
Subsequently, the software allows users to view productivity, cost, and performance outcomes of different design/production recommendations before being able to export the part in production files according to multiple user-defined parameters.
The company is currently working on a project consultancy basis, but this is the first time that its digital solutions have been made available – including FireFlow, its plug-in for Rhino 3D and Grasshopper.
Established in 2017, Additive Flow is based in London, UK, and was one of 28 startups selected by StartUp Grind to join its Accelerate 2019 Program – from a Europe-wide competition of more than 3000 entrants.
