Virtual Clay Software Developed in UB Lab “Jumpstarts” Design Process

Posted on

BUFFALO, N.Y. — A 3-D virtual clay sculpting software package that came on the market this week was developed out of research conducted by University at Buffalo mechanical engineers who wanted to speed up computational design of complex, organic shapes.

The software, called Protean, will provide industrial engineers, artists, animators, industrial designers, bioengineers and others with the ability to rapidly develop virtual representations of their designs at the earliest stages.

Tactus Technologies, a UB technology spinoff company, was started by UB researchers who developed some of the technologies underlying Protean.
