VR Place: Automatic Fibre Placement

VR-Place is our automatic Fibre placement software that we are developing on behalf of DRDO. The software is designed and developed to make composite parts on complex 3D geometries. The Software will be paired with a custom machine developed by DRDO , which will be used to manufacture custom parts that they require. The Software is wholly developed by us and will feature fibre path and its path planning software. Our striking visualisation tools help the user to better understand the properties of the tool surface and the path generated.

The features of the software

  • Parametric and CAD surface definition
  • 3D interactive viewer
  • User definable Course definition and tow trimming
  • Customisable course definition
  • Multi ply placement
  • Partial Ply coverage
  • Curvature measurement
  • Weingarten map visualisation
  • Curvature Visualisation

Currently the software is under development and we are planning to develop an low cost AFP head that can be coupled with the software to make affordable AFP solutions for research and development.
