Orthotropy and Design Optimization for Additive Manufacturing with Additive Flow
Founders of Additive Flow
Charles Fried & Alexander Pluke
Founded in 2017 by Alexander Pluke, Charles Fried, Additive Flow has sought to develop and provide advanced digital solutions for the additive manufacturing workflow. Their mission is to intelligently progress the capabilities of design and optimization for additive manufacturing applications and to unlock the latent real performance potential of 3D printing.
This is achieved by their recently released, FormFlow software, that overcomes the challenges faced by many designers and engineers working with additive manufacturing processes. A multi-functional program with the capability to apply multiple user-defined parameters for simultaneous geometry, process parameter, and material optimization. The software uses physics-driven algorithms to process and solve complex performance issues in the design phase.
