Non-NASA Commercial Applications include geometry-centric conceptual design and risk analysis for products other than aircraft. We anticipate that automotive designers and other product designers find our tools highly beneficial.
NASA has an ongoing need for conceptual design tools that are capable of performing multi-disciplinary analysis on unconventional or advanced concepts. Existing tools developed both within NASA and by commercial entities are not flexible enough to make this a reality. CADNexus proposes to leverage its existing core product and geometry-centric philosophy coupled with optimal estimation techniques applied to risk management into a commercial product offering. We envision expanding the scope of the effort to provide a geometry-centric underpinning to subsequent design stages thereby unifying the underlying geometry representation across conceptual, preliminary, and detailed design. The potentially provides a major advantage in that there are no lossy translations due to file format conversions and the usual need for geometry repair when exporting and importing geometry.
