Frustum announced the commercial availability and latest release of its patent-pending core technology, TrueSOLID. Built to help designers and engineers deliver better products faster with fewer errors and lower costs, the technology works alongside traditional CAD to drive 3D manufacturing that operates at pace with the emerging on-demand economy.

Frustum’s TrueSOLID volumetric geometry kernel allows for the blending of indeterminate generative geometry to traditional surface-based CAD with engineering precision, enabling additive and other manufacturing techniques to realize their full potential. In addition to creating high quality designs that deliver weight and material savings, this product allows for manual and procedural modeling of highly complex mechanical parts that have manufacturability built in.


  • Multi-part assembly optimization
  • New optimization modes
  • Kernel-integrated mesostructures (lattices)

“The TrueSOLID volumetric geometry kernel was designed to be a fundamental component of next generation 3D design software and to enable design for additive manufacturing. The intention is to bring about the transformation of CAD design from deterministic to generative,” says Jesse Coors-Blankenship, CEO and Founder, Frustum. “Moving towards a single-click solution for product design, our technology grants engineers and designers the freedom to reimagine how parts can be designed for a new generation of complex products made with 3D manufacturing.”

The technology is currently being commercially licensed to Siemens PLM software, serving Siemens NX and Siemens SolidEdge customers.
