Bionic Lightweight Design

Generate best in class biomimetic lighweight designs using parametric algorithms

The Challenge

The transfer of bionic patterns to real-life applications is time-consuming and infeasible because of manual sketching and inadaptability to the technical specifications such as loads and materials which results in non-optimal structures.

  • Generating biomimetic design patterns is not possible or highly inefficient in a classical CAD environment
  • Manual drawing of the biomimetic designs is a time-consuming task because of the complexity of the bionic shapes
  • The structures cannot be remodified easily to satisfy given design criteria

Our Approach

Integrate multiple design features to easily create biomimetic lightweight designs in a parametrized way.

1

VORONOI CELLS

Create a Voronoi diagram with the help of a set of points. Offset the Voronoi diagram curves and create the surfaces to obtain Voronoi cells

2

VORONOI RIBS

Perform a boolean difference between Voronoi cells and a surface overlapped with it to obtain Voronoi ribs

3

BIONIC DESIGN

Extrude the Voronoi ribs into the perpendicular design to get a bionic design

Your Value

Generate innovative and high-performance bionic parts in an intuitive way.

  • Develop biomimetic designs using powerful and easy-to-use algorithms eliminating the need for manual drawing in a CAD environment
  • Parametrically developed designs allow for the easy modification of the structures to meet the specifications and functionality of the design requirements
  • Combine multiple features and develop innovative products through biological construction principles
