DSM Somos® (Elgin, IL), a world leader in the development of advanced stereolithography (SL) materials for rapid prototyping and manufacturing, offers a software application allowing SL users to create light-weight prototypes having enhanced structural integrity.

Based on patented technology from the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), TetraShell™ hollow build software will use MSOE’s TetraLattice* technology to facilitate the manufacture of hollow stereolithography parts with variable skin thicknesses, supported by a patented and proprietary TetraLattice™ support structure. Potential application areas include investment casting patterns, reduced- density metal clad composite structures and light-weight large, thick-sectioned parts.

The TetraShell software is a proprietary DSM Somos application module supported by Materialise’s Magics™ software and can easily be used on all current SL equipment.
