Acquisition to accelerate Carbon’s operations and large-scale production of new parts for Carbon’s end-use
REDWOOD CITY, California., Aug 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Carbon, a leading 3D printing technology company, today announced the acquisition of ParaMatters, an additive manufacturing software provider. This acquisition extends Carbon’s current software capabilities with topology optimization. Carbon’s technology platform is now expanding, allowing product design and development teams to create better products in less time using a wide variety of materials and manufacturing systems.
Most software platforms used to design and manufacture products are optimized for constraints imposed by traditional manufacturing, including injection molding, molding, and subtractive processes. The lack of modern design software that can be iterated quickly and reap the benefits of additive manufacturing continues to limit the product development lifecycle. This acquisition fills this gap and expands Carbon’s generative design software capabilities to enable greater automation and the creation of more complex, higher-performing part designs. These benefits build on Carbon’s introduction of Design Engine™ earlier this year, which is being used by global brands to automate the process of developing grating parts for production.
“We recognize the critical role that software design tools play in the digital transformation of our customers. For too long, designers have settled for software design tools that meet the constraints of traditional manufacturing,” said Phil De Simone, co-founder and member of the Office of the CEO. “Many design tools of yesterday have not been optimized to take advantage of industrial innovations, including advanced 3D printing materials and manufacturing processes. Both Carbon and ParaMatters have shared the same vision to provide modern tools to ensure product development teams can create better products in less time. “
“Software is the backbone of our idea-to-production platform and we believe ParaMatters’ generative design capabilities are an important extension of our design software,” said Craig Carlson, Chief Technology Officer and member of the CEO’s Office. “By expanding our software capabilities optimized for additive manufacturing, we are enabling a generation of designers and developers to create better end products with advanced geometries and improved performance characteristics.”
“The ParaMatters team is proud of the software design tools we have built to advance additive manufacturing. The ability to expand our offerings as part of Carbon’s idea-to-production platform will enable our customers to design and manufacture better products ,” said Robert Yusin, Chairman & CEO at ParaMatters. “As one team, we intend to take the manufacturing industry beyond the current barriers.”
