his September, Madison startup company SciArt Software, Inc. was awarded a $530,000 investment from the Idea Fund of La Crosse. The tech company developed Pareto, a plugin system for digital design programs that allows engineers to calculate the strength of materials more efficiently. Now, Pareto is being used by companies like Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation in Brookfield to speed up the design process and make vehicles more fuel efficient.
Lighter, faster, cheaper always seems to be the goal, especially in the transportation or aerospace industries. But to perform reliably and safely, products require strength and stability. Computer simulations have advanced the creation of quality products, but the process can often be disjointed and costly as SciArt Software CTO, Praveen Yadav, discovered.
The Madison-based startup provides software that allows design engineers to simulate different product designs before they’re ever made to reduce weight and part counts, which saves companies time, money, and raw materials.
SciArt Software CEO Karen Caswelch demands attention… She got our attention. Clearly and patiently, Caswelch explained how Pareto differs, its capabilities, and why it is a gem and a deal.
”Generative Design, including Topology Optimization, will fundamentally change the way high-performance product designs are developed”, says Dr. Keith Meintjes of CIMdata.
