MIT’s New Foundry Software Helps Build Multimaterial 3D Printable Assemblies

Published by , March 31, 2017 8:53 am

(MachineDesign) MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) recently unveiled Foundry, a software tool for designing 3D-printable parts that let engineers efficiently build complex multimaterial structures.
Foundry software draws heavily on CSAIL’s previous OpenFab software, which lets users create continuous composition gradients, microstructural lattices, and other complex low-level geometries. Foundry can handle high-resolution material combinations, assigning a material to each volume element (or voxel), as finely as 2,000 dpi (13 μm).
