Companies Making Breakthrough Products with Carbon Design Engine
Go From Idea to a Functional Latticed Part in Hours
Design Engine’s powerful cloud-based computation can generate advanced conformal lattices in minutes. Pair with a 3D printer, and go from idea to printed part in just a few hours.
Designed for designers
Save Time By Eliminating Tedious, Rote Work
Design lattices that work right away. Carbon Design Engine reduces and usually eliminates any need for the tedious, manual editing of struts or structures post-generate. Carbon Design Engine automatically resolves lattice features, both large and small, while robustly transitioning between different zones inside the same part for tunable performance.
Proven in production
The core lattice technology in Carbon Design Engine has been used to deliver award-winning products from companies like Specialized and CCM.
The Specialized Romin saddle with Mirror technology
The latest high-performance product to use Design Engine for ultimate control.
How It Works
Learn how to generate a lattice easily with Carbon Design Engine.
Define Multiple Performance Zones and Optimize Each Independently
Precisely control performance characteristics across multiple zones in your product for massive tunability of a single material. This capability leverages different lattice cell types, cell sizes, or strut diameters to create different zones of performance. Design Engine uses patent pending technology to seamlessly blend zones, producing attractive, functional lattices ready to use in real-world applications.
