Gen3D is excited to announce that it has been acquired by Altair. Sulis will be integrated into Altair Inspire and we will not provide an updated version of Sulis going forward. However, all existing and new Sulis licenses and support remain valid and will be honoured. The current standalone software is still available and you can purchase Sulis online on this website.

Sulis Flow

Create hydraulics for the AM process.

The Sulis Flow Module is the easiest and quickest way to design complex fluid systems for the additive manufacturing process. You can create 3D spline geometry using Sulis Flow’s simple interface to rapidly generate new concepts. You can rapidly add spline or helical cooling channels to imported models and use the inbuilt accelerators to create a set of conformal channels. You can also export the final model with the channels cut out of it and automatically analyse and compensate fluid channels to be self-supporting. Start your free trial to see what you can achieve.

Rapid creation of fluid geometry.

Fast design of complex fluid networks

Painlessly create 3D spline geometry using our simple and flexible interface to rapidly generate new concepts that are optimised for additive manufacturing.

Fractal patterns

Easily create branching structures to split large flows into many equally sized smaller flows for manifolding or heat exchange applications.

Internal Channels

Rapidly add spline or helical cooling channels to imported models and use the inbuilt accelerators to create a set of conformal channels. Export the final model with the channels cut out of it.

Export to CAD

Export outer walls or fluid bodies of the system as a STEP file to be used in any CAD or analysis software. Import into a generative design tool to further optimise the material layout.

Edit complex fluid systems in real-time.

Freeform flowpath editing

Edit complex fluid networks in real-time using the click-and-drag tools. Optimise the fluid network layout, routing and interfacing components to be more compact and manufacturable.

Manufacturable fluid channels

Automatically analyse and compensate fluid channels to be self supporting. Remove the need for painful post-processing of internal supports.

Conformal geometry

Conform geometry over complex surfaces to increase packing efficiency, minimise material usage, or improve heat transfer between surfaces.

Realtime visual feedback

Create and dynamically edit patterned objects to create multiple spline objects whilst receiving real-time feedback on your design.

Testimonials.

Gen3D was able to generate some incredibly complex geometries with ease which we required for our particular task. Along with the software, the team were also very responsive and helpful in answering any queries we had.
