Spherene™: Design for Manufacturing Redefined

SPHERENE ADVANTAGES

  • Industry’s only surface conformal minimal surface
  • Optimal stress distribution due to true isotropy
  • Adapts to any shape
  • Behaves like bulk material

EFFICIENT MANUFACTURING

  • Minimized need of build supports
  • Improved thermal dissipation
  • Saves costs & time
  • For all materials & printing methods

POWERFUL DESIGN TOOLS

  • Fast & user-friendly design tools
  • Adjust density, thickness, bias
  • Customize with cavities & closures
  • Autonomous shape generation

Design Intent First:
Best in Class Intuitive Workflow, Integrated in Rhino3D

Achieve your design goals with easy-to-use field controls and modifiers; combine at your heart's wish. spherene's design tools are streamlined for design intent, allowing fast iteration cycles and drastically reducing engineering time.

Don't waste your time creating formulas, Gyroids and Boolean operations; spherene does everything for you, autonomously. Well, almost everything. You still have to know what you want.

What Our Early Adopters Have to Say About Their Experience

«Minimal Surfaces are great, but when you are able to adapt density and thickness in design, it turns out an amazing lattice tool for footwear creation.»
René Medel, framas Kunststofftechnik GmbH

 

«...clearly addressing one of the cross-cutting themes of the ESA technology strategy, but in a novel way.»
Moritz Fontaine, European Space Agency ESA

«This is fun, I was getting tired of making my own gyroids by hand every time.»
Beta Tester @isowix on Discord

«Having explored a few Rhino/ Grasshopper plugins for minimal surface generation, spherene distinctly stands out. It has a straightforward interface, paired with spherene's concise tutorials and cloud integration, ensuring rapid iterations of our design studies.»
Slicelab

«Right after I have started to use Gyroids for printing ski boot liners or Schwarz TPMS to work on revolutionary midsole designs
we dreamed of a bubble type of infill structure with variable density and wall thickness fitting into any shape. Now, spherene just does that!

Easy to use in the design process. Just design any volume and spherene fills it with printable "bubbles" - easy to vary density and strength as you wish. No booleans needed!

Made for 3D printing. Great in after 3D print treatment!

Using that unique Swiss software you‘ll get the max out of your 3D printer!»

3D scanned bike saddle converted to a SUBD mesh as design base for creating boundary geometry to grow on to. Application of density points to control the ADMS density.

Controling variable wall thickness by simply placing points in your 3D scene.

Use standard Rhino tools creating complicated density, thickness and surface bias fields. In this example artistically recreate a femur.

Cavity field points allow for very easy and fun placement of cavities in and on your geometry. Control the radius and combine multiple field points for more complex outcomes.

Apply simple points and geometry to control complex Spherene behaviour. In this example we make use of grasshopper for Rhino3D to generate a density field from a baropodometry image, downloaded from wikipedia.

Use field points to control thickness asymmetry and surface bias. Thickness asymmetry allows shifting the solid surface towards a volume. Surface bias allows shifting the single surface (Ideal minimal surface) towards a volume.
