The Digital Materialization Group (DMG) has been working for 30 years on radically new mathematical basis for volumetric modeling. The developed Function Representation (FRep) and the special-purpose HyperFun language support modeling truly volumetric shapes together with their internal gradual material distribution and multi-scale microstructures, thus providing instruments for modeling and fabrication of a “real thing” instead of its empty shell, which the case with other existing approaches and tools. Our next step is implementation of FRep modeling within an industrial CAD software system Symvol for Rhino by the Uformia start-up in Norway.

The coming years will be crucial in turning FRep into the world mainstream approach allowing for creation of software tools of new generation. The Global Institute AIV has always been supporting HyperFun and Uformia. The new round of development will turn these exciting technologies into a global multi-million business with a strong research foundation.
