Carbon, a leading 3D printing technology company, announced today the acquisition of ParaMatters, a provider of generative design software for additive manufacturing. Carbon’s current software capabilities will be expanded with this acquisition to include topology optimization. ParaMatters software will help Carbon expand its generative design capabilities for additive manufacturing.

Carbon’s technology platform is now expanding to allow product design and development teams to create better products in less time using a wider range of materials and manufacturing systems.

Carbon Acquires ParaMatters

Most product design and manufacturing software platforms are optimised for the constraints imposed by traditional manufacturing processes such as injection moulding, casting, and subtractive processes. The lack of modern design software that allows for rapid iteration and takes advantage of the benefits of additive manufacturing continues to limit the product development lifecycle.

This acquisition fills that void by expanding Carbon’s generative design software capabilities, allowing for greater automation and the creation of more complex, high-performance part designs. These advantages build on Carbon’s earlier this year introduction of Design Engine™, which is used by global brands to automate the process of developing latticed parts for production.

“We recognize the critical role software design tools play in our customers’ digital transformation. For far too long, designers have settled for software design tools that adhere to the limitations of traditional manufacturing. Many design tools of yesterday are not optimized to take advantage of industry 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.” 

– Phil DeSimone, co-founder and member of the Office of the CEO, Carbon

Craig Carlson, Chief Technology Officer and member of the Office of the CEO, ParaMatters, said “Software is the backbone of our idea-to-production platform and we believe the generative design capabilities from ParaMatters are a key expansion of our design software. By expanding our software capabilities that are optimized for additive manufacturing we are empowering a generation of designers and developers to create better end use products with advanced geometries and improved performance characteristics.”
