WHAT IS ALTAIR SULIS?
3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing is now firmly part of the product development cycle and is accelerating innovation in so many ways. Designers are able to take advantage of new testing and manufacturing processes that previously wouldn’t have been possible.
Formerly known as Gen3D, allows users to design with additive manufacturing in mind. Simply put, Altair Sulis is a CAD tool created specifically for additive manufacturing.
With Sulis, users can start with primitive geometry or use existing CAD files and easily create simple or complex lattice structures with just a few clicks. Lattice structures are a great way to lightweight your designs to reduce mass or volume.
Create Complex and Advanced Shapes
Built-in design software is simple and easy to use, especially when creating complex and organic shapes.
The interface is designed with the additive process with custom workflows to help users get to the most efficient design possible, quickly.
Fluid Channel Creation
The Sulis Flow module allows users to design fluid systems for the additive manufacturing process. Users can create 3D splines or helical cooling channels to imported models, then analyze and compensate fluid channels to be self-supporting, eliminating the need for post processing of the models.
Simple Lattice Creation
Choose between multiple types of lattice structures like surface, strut, stochastic and planar lattices or blend them together within a single part.
Customize lattice structures according to multiple variables like cell size, density, shell thickness or material usage.
- One-click lattice creation: Select from surface, strut, stochastic or planar.
- Customize lattice cell size and density in multiple directions.
- Modify shell thickness and interior lattice structure to reduce mass and volume.
Heat Transfer and Flow Paths
- Create complex fluid systems on 3D spline geometry.
- Easily include helical, spline and conformal channels.
- Export as STEP file to create a simple workflow with CAD Tools.
- Use fractal patterns to split fluid domains and create efficient heat transfer designs.
