PTC Acquires Frustum
PTC, the U.S.-based software company, acquired Frustum in November 2018. Frustum, founded in 2014, brings generative design tools to PTC Creo, PTC’s Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. PTC will embed Frustum’s entire solution into Creo as a kernel with native integration.
Previously, PTC lacked some of the generative capabilities that its leading CAD competitors already had. Autodesk has mastered generative design and owns much of the mind share. Several of Siemens products, including NX, NX Nastran, HEEDS, Capital, and Simcenter 3D generate and validate designs in the context of constraints with a combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI), rules-based algorithms, and Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) processing. Dassault Systèmes brings generative design together with traditional CAD, convergent modeling, topology optimization, physics-based design, and simulation within its CATIA product. Additionally, Dassault Systèmes SolidWor...
