Lowering the Barrier to Advanced Modeling

GL Studio is a suite of Additive Manufacturing (AM) toolkits that integrate directly into existing CAD platforms (currently available on Rhino 6 for Windows and Mac). Augmenting native CAD features, GL Studio enables users to leverage the power of AM by providing the ability to intuitively design advanced lattice geometries.

Why GL Studio?

Reduce Costs

Save Time

Better Designs

Eliminating the use of the STL file format and working directly with native CAD data (B-reps), GL Studio removes the need for costly mesh repair and conversion software.

With direct integration into native CAD platforms, iterate faster by reducing costly import/export processes and file conversion.

Providing unparalleled power and control, GL Studio enables the creation of advanced lattice geometries that match both physical and esthetic requirements.

NVM Technology- (NURBS Voxel Modeling)

Powerful, Intuitive Control

Delivering a next generation design and engineering core, NVM (NURBS Voxel Modeling) technology simplifies the complex. Using voxels (3D pixels) to represent geometries without approximation, NVM delivers the ability to create both conformal and non-conformal lattice geometries.

Solving a Broken Workflow with NVM Technology

Mesh Based Workflow

NVM Enabled Workflow

True CAD Data

Never Convert to STL

For the first time ever, generate advanced lattice geometries without ever converting to a mesh. Built using B-rep data, move beyond the confinements of the STL and create editable B-rep geometries that support downstream CAD features.

Direct Integration

New Tools, Same Platform

Design and create without leaving the native CAD environment. Built for seamless integration, General Lattice tools augment existing CAD features providing industry leading digital manufacturing tools.

The Power of Two

Offered as a plug-in for McNeel's Rhino, GL Studio augments existing Rhino functionality and provides users powerful, intuitive latticing tools that make innovating with AM remarkably easy, while at the same time providing superior control and accuracy.

Rhino is a 3D CAD modeling software that enables users to create, edit, analyze, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces and solids. Providing a wide array of tools and features, along with support for 3rd party applications, Rhino offers the ability to create highly dynamic and personalized workflows all in a single platform.

Built for AM from the ground up, GL Studio democratizes the lattice design process providing powerful, intuitive latticing tools. Using 100% native CAD data, GL Studio works inside of Rhino and enables users to seamlessly integrate advanced lattice designs into larger part files or assemblies with the ability to execute downstream CAD features.
