Hydraulic design software for additive manufacturing.
Rapidly create AM-appropriate geometry with design accelerators and generative design features within Sulis. Define or change the layout of a concept in real-time using click-and-drag 3D editing tools. Use Sulis’s proprietary manufacturing checks and compensation tools to truly exploit the benefits of AM and reduce the risk of costly failures.
Why use Sulis Flow?
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.
Easily create branching structures to split large flows into many equally sized smaller flows for manifolding or heat exchange applications.
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.
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.
