PUNTOZERO 3D DfAM studio integrates as an innovative startup
The PUNTOZERO 3D team, known as a studio specialized in DfAM optimization, is now structured as an innovative startup in Italy. Based in Milan and born from the idea of 4 passionate and skilled professionals in the world of AM, the company develops new design methodologies to revolutionize the way products are designed and manufactured, unleashing the full potential of 3D printing.
The zero point in mathematics represents the point of origin of everything, this concept evokes ideas of precision and is the strategic heart of the start-up, which has reached a turning point thanks to additive technologies: developing new design methodologies and creating products designed for additive manufacturing or DfAM.
With a mindset detached from traditional design constraints, PUNTOZERO 3D enhances the potential of AM by leveraging the tools of generative design, topology optimization, implicit modeling, and lattice structures. These ever-evolving concepts find their highest form of expression in 3D printing technologies.
One of the most fascinating capabilities implemented by PUNTOZERO 3D lies in biomimetics, an approach to design in which natural processes provide solutions to industrial problems. In nature, every form has a function. This is precisely the concept of the projects developed by the Milanese start-up, which is inspired by natural optimization strategies for the generation of geometries with specific functions, in the automotive industry as in aeronautics, in the medical industry as in fashion, in the world of sports protection as well as in industrial automation.
The company designs with the aim of modifying the mechanical properties of materials and the performance of products, as well as giving an exclusive aesthetic appearance that is impossible to obtain with traditional technologies.
Additive manufacturing offers enormous opportunities for companies, reduction of costs and production times, relocation of production, removal of tools, faster product development, and many others, the mission of PUNTOZERO 3D is to transform these opportunities into concrete benefits for companies, thanks to a specific design for AM.
In the absence of reference standards, PUNTOZERO 3D will have to trace new engineering paradigms and new design methodologies. This is where the real innovation lies: in lateral thinking and in creating something that does not yet exist.
The methodologies developed by PUNTOZERO 3D aim to create algorithms to accelerate the design flow, create new shapes to improve product performance, make it more sustainable, cheaper and have a concrete impact at a social and environmental level.
