VM Podcast S3E1: LEAP71 and the code to the future of advanced manufacturing

Understanding computational engineering with the company's co-founders Josephine Lissner and Lin Kayser

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Get ready for an electrifying start to the new season of the VoxelMatters Podcast! Our guests for this first episode of 2024 are Josefine Lissner and Lin Kayser, co-founders of computational engineering firm LEAP71.

In 2024, we’re diving headfirst into the boundless world of additive manufacturing, exploring an array of applications spanning industries, materials, and parts

To kick off this journey, we’ve got an extraordinary story to share with you. Brace yourselves for a game-changing narrative about a company that’s not just redesigning parts for AM but reimagining them – through code!

LEAP71 and the code to the future of advanced manufacturing: understanding computational engineering with the company's co-founders

Meet LEAP71, the pioneers of a revolutionary computational engineering approach to part design. They aren’t just transforming the way we create some of the world’s most cutting-edge products; they’re also shaping the future of 3D printing, making it an indispensable cornerstone of tomorrow’s manufacturing.

LEAP71 has wowed us with their mind-boggling creations (you can see some of their latest work in the photo gallery below), working with industry giants like AMCM and the Fraunhofer Institute. While we’ve heard about parametric and generative design for at least a decade, LEAP71 has taken a quantum “leap” beyond existing 3D design software.

What’s more, they are doing this by open-sourcing much of their knowledge, including their advanced PicoGK (“peacock”), geometry kernel for Computational Engineering Models, which was released under the permissive Free and Open Source (FOSS) Apache 2.0 license.

In this episode, we sit down with the masterminds behind LEAP71, who also happen to constitute the company’s entire workforce. Together, we unravel how they’re harnessing software algorithms to craft the next era of exceptionally complex physical products, from rocket engines to energy-efficient heat exchangers or electric motors.
