Industry Spin-offs


2017 - 2018

The need for automation in the world-wide manufacturing industry has increased strongly in recent years. Through almost all industries, companies are trying to improve internal processes in order to save time and costs to remain competitive. In particular, the production of safety-relevant products are increasingly using computer assisted techniques, known as computer-aided engineering (CAE), before they going to production. Not only the design, but also physical properties are simulated and improved upfront. But even by using these mathematically complex computer simulations, it still takes a lot of manual work for the engineers to prepare and preprocess those CAE simulation to get reliable results.

2013 - 2014

In germany are currently more than 500 companies offering the possibility to order customer-designed products in the internet. But when the customer becomes a designer it is necessary to have a good tool and idea how the final product should look like, before the order. The project wants to solve this problem with the 3D-Visualization software "JavaView", which got developed at the department of mathematics and computer science of the Freie Universität Berlin.

Trinckle 3D

2012 - 2013

The project Trinckle aims to enable private customers to benefit from the advantages of modern 3D printing technology. Within an online marketplace, people will be able to share and personalize 3D models and products that then can be ordered from the Trinckle printout service. In order to improve the access to high quality 3D models, the Trinckle team is developing a novel software system, that enables customers to generate individual 3D models for sharing or printing without the need of any ...


2011 - 2012

The long term goal of the Uplivion project is to replace the DVD as the primary means of distributing high-end computer games and to make them available through the web browser instead. Our technology enables players to start playing a game by simply navigating to a website and pressing the play-button, much in the same way as watching a video on YouTube. To make this possible, we are developing a highly optimized suite of technologies that cover all aspects of streaming games across the ... 



Laubwerk, founded in April 2010 and supported by an EXIST-grant, enables for the first time architects and landscape architects to get the full variety of plant life on their computer. The Laubwerk team developed a novel technology in combination with a skeleton-based storage format and a software library to flexibly build geometries for 3D plant models. This allows the user to fluently work with 3D plants in a preview mode and guarantees high-end visualization in a breathtaking quality and ...



Mathematics is everywhere: in mobile phones, MP3 players, and computers, just to name a few; it is a fundament of science and technology. Still its reputation could be better: it is usually regarded as an abstract subject, tedious and too dry to be comprehensible, with its uses often remaining often a mystery. vismath, founded in March 2010 and supported by an EXIST-grant, aims at a change: presenting mathematics in an inspiring and vivid way, accessible for everyone and unveiling its ...
