Voxel founders, Aaron and Zach, met as engineering students at the University of Michigan, where they shared an interest in additive manufacturing. They understood the game-changing capabilities of the process but also understood that the complexity of additive designs put these capabilities out of reach of most engineers. A better design tool was needed. 

 

As students they began working on that tool – an AI based software that enables engineers to determine the performance requirements and lets the software propose designs that meet those requirements. They continued working on the software tool and finally built a successful proof of concept. 

 

Through ongoing consulting engagements, Aaron and Zach learned that by applying this proprietary software, innovative products could be designed in less time. Today, Voxel occupies a facility in Blue Ash, Ohio, equipped with both polymer and metal printers and a sophisticated testing lab.
