ParaMatters CogniCAD

The most powerful generative design and advanced manufacturing software

High quality designs with smooth surfaces


ParaMatters is a fully autonomous and intuitive Generative Design and simulation platform that optimizes the most labor intensive steps in the digital workflow from design to manufacturing. ParaMatters delivers best in class lightweighting and performance enhancements with ready to manufacture designs in a short period of time without manual interruption or re-modeling.


CogniCAD from ParaMatters runs in the cloud or on your local computer. 

Reduce cost and time

ParaMatters gives designers the possibility to go from an idea to a manufacturable design with a few klicks. 

Export as STL and STEP

All files can be exported as STL or STEP file for easy processing of data. 

Smooth surface

All optimized models can be exported with a smooth surface. There is no need to manually cleaning up the parts.

The ideal software for your AM experience

Mechanical Design

The friendly and intuitive UI allows users to quickly set up complex loading conditions like forces and moment, pressure, acceleration and vibrations. Quick optimization times and high quality models make CogniCAD the best Generative Design software on the market. Models can be exported as STL and STEP files with smooth surfaces. There is no remodeling needed.

Thermal Design

Heat Conduction Topology Optimization allows design of passive cooling devices and heat sinks. Thermal loads are heat flux applied on faces or volumetric heat applied on volume bodies (mimicking conduction and convection). Create high complex designs with the push of a button.

Reverse Engineering

Upload your STL or PLY files and receive a heald and watertight STL file and a STEP file within minutes. 

Finally there is a great solution to go from mesh back to cad!
