DFM Design Solutions is the group of design solutions offered by Nature Architects.
Using our proprietary design algorithm, Direct Functional Modeling™️, we provide a variety of physical functions such as
* Vibration Control
* Vibration transmission
* Deformation control by integrated structure
* Heat exchange control
In addition to the above, we can also realize highly challenging designs in which shape and physical function are closely related. For example, there is generally a trade-off between reducing the weight of a component and ensuring its support stiffness, where improving the performance of one compromises the other.
In order to extend the limits of such trade-offs, we have created an innovative information environment for the proper design of metamaterials, compliant mechanisms, and other structural design knowledge.
By operating these assets in-house and customizing them for each project, we are able to provide solutions to difficult design challenges, including trade-offs, that require a great deal of trial and error with conventional technologies. By designing with us, you can
Explore the possibility of functions that exceed those of conventional products
* Standardize the design process by digitizing the design
* Shorten design lead time
* Shorten design lead time, and create high value-added products.
DFM PULSE is a vibration isolation design solution from Nature Architects.
Conventional vibration isolation techniques use elastic components such as springs or rubber to suppress vibration. DFM PULSE, on the other hand, can be designed and fabricated in a variety of materials such as wood, metal, glass and plastic to reduce vibration without the use of springs or rubber.
This means that vibration isolation can be seamlessly embedded into a wide variety of components and products, such as motors, speakers, mobility and electronic infrastructure, without the need for additional assembly processes.
In recent years, haptics technology, which presents information through vibration, has been used in various fields such as smartphones, games, and mobility. DFM TOUCH is a solution to freely design the area, intensity, and direction of vibration by designing and processing the appropriate geometric structure in the housing of the product in which the vibration actuator is embedded.
In general, in order to form complex three-dimensional shapes in sheet metal processing, it is necessary to weld flat metal sheets. DFM UNWELD is a solution to design elastic and plastic deformation in sheet metal without welding by computer-generating drawings that can be formed in sheet metal by stamping or laser processing. This is the solution.
