Automatically generate high performance and lightweight structures optimized for advanced manufacturing
CogniCAD by ParaMatters is an intuitive generative design and topology optimization software that optimizes parts through automated simulation based on performance and spatial requirements. With CogniCAD, you can reduce labor-intensive steps in the design process and create optimizations that would generally be impossible for a human designer. With generative design, you can achieve lightweighting, topology optimization and performance enhancements in an incredibly short period of time and ready for advanced manufacturing techniques like 3D printing.
Design the Impossible
CogniCAD is powered by a combination of superior topology optimization techniques, high-performance cloud computing, computational geometry, and artificial intelligence all working together to deliver a platform for the next generation of design. With CogniCAD you can automatically generate high-performance structures that are lightweight and optimized for advanced manufacturing techniques like additive manufacturing and investment casting, This streamline design-to-manufacturing workflow can greatly reduce design cycles and improve overall manufacturing efficiency.

The CogniCAD generative design and topology optimization platform by Paramatters is the easiest and fastest way to
generate manufacturing-ready designs with optimized topology, weight, and function.
ParaMatters CogniCAD offers a streamlined process that makes generative design easy and effective for even the toughest engineering and manufacturing challenges.
Step 1: Define Loads and Parameters
Once you have your design (built in any CAD software) you import it into CogniCAD and define loading conditions, choose forces, material properties, boundary conditions and design goals.
Step 2: Let the AI Generate Your Design
Once your definitions and goals are done, the AI goes to works and optimizes your design, reducing weight and creating complex structures with enhanced performance
Step 3: Review and Manufacture
Once you have finalized your design you can prepare it for an advanced manufacturing process like additive manufacturing or investment casting
