The Medial Axis

Our patented technology is built on the principle of the Medial Axis Representation™ (MAR™), or popularly known as the skeleton of a virtual object. MAR™ is changing the way 3D digital models are represented and composed in software applications. Our representation is volumetric, unlike the traditional model - the Boundary Representation, which represents an object by its outer limits. This opens up a whole new set of exciting functionalities, which are reflected in our products.

The MAR™ enables to perform CAD drawing as well as Finite Element or CFD simulations directly on the same model and to store the results in a seamless manner. The simulation results, in particular the deformed shape, is fully recovered and can be used for evaluation or for consequent operations including further simulations.
