Design & Software solutions
Additive Manufacturing design and software services
We can help you exploit the freedoms of Additive Manufacturing by developing next-generation software and tools to improve and optimise the design of your products, using a variety of automated tools and custom-made software specifically made for commercial Additive Manufacturing. Our modelling and simulation capabilities provide a cost-effective way of optimising process, materials and design.
Automated Design Tools
Using cutting-edge design software and tools, we can create bespoke software for customer-specific applications. We apply automation of Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) principles to all our projects.
Using proprietary topology optimisation algorithms, we can create designs that optimise material layout within a specific space and operating conditions. Our simulation tools also allow us to design lightweight components specifically for your projects.
Our software experts can use proprietary software and algorithms to integrate surface-based lattices into components for your project. We can also model lattices for fluid transfer or thermal analysis, if a project requires it.
Who we've worked with

Our research is at the forefront of Additive Manufacturing, and has been utilised by companies across the globe. Find out more about our latest innovations below.
Working in partnership
Our clients are at the heart of every project. That’s why we’re happy to accommodate any specific needs you might have, including intellectual property ownership and non-disclosure agreements.
Clients retain ownership of intellectual property
We understand how important your IP is to our customers. Unlike many research bodies, we ensure that you get to keep full ownership of any foreground IP developed through our research.
Strict non-disclosure agreements
We work with global companies on highly strategic and confidential projects. We will never publish or share any research created through client projects without permission.
