LimitState will be exhibiting at this year's TCT Show, being held at the NEC in Birmingham from September 25th to the 27th.
LimitState are excited to be returning to the TCT Show for a third year with our LimitState:FORM optimization software, which significantly reduces the time and effort needed to design strong and light truss forms for components and structures.
Dr Tom Pritchard, Principal Engineer at LimitState, will be on the stand to showcase the technology, demonstrating how the layout optimization technology employed by LimitState:FORM can dramatically reduce the time required to optimize components.
"Designers wishing to take full advantage of the design freedom associated with additive manufacturing have been held back by software, but this is now changing. At LimitState our focus is on empowering designers to develop more intelligent designs, in as short as possible time."
Matthew Gilbert, Managing Director, LimitState.
LimitState:FORM is a powerful software application for engineers who want to quickly design strong and light components and structures. The software is the ideal tool for exploiting the design freedoms associated with additive manufacturing. It automatically identifies minimum-weight truss designs for specified material stress or deflection limits and employs high-level CAD geometries rather than low-level meshes.
LimitState was established in 2006 as an engineering software house specializing in encapsulating cutting-edge optimization techniques in engineering analysis and design software. With a track record of delivering class-leading software products, our tools are used by many of the world's largest and most innovative engineering firms, in over 30 countries globally.
Our core software products use cutting edge computational techniques originated in the University of Sheffield, UK, giving our products unique capabilities. The academic co-founders of the company remain committed to ensuring that the fruits of their research are made available to practising engineers in the form of easy to use software applications.
