Open-source Software

To launch or edit our free custom-developed software tools, click on the items below and follow the instructions provided.

This software enables the design and simulation of compliant rolling-contact architected materials (CRAMs). It also generates an image of how each layer within a designed CRAM should be fabricated with straight flexure straps. Click here to download the necessary files (i.e., CRAMtool.m, CRAMtool.fig, and images.mat) and put the files in the same folder on your computer. Then open and run the file CRAMtool.m to launch the tool.

Software Tool for Designing Compliant Rolling-contact Architected Materials

Software Tool to Simulate Optical Forces on Arbitrarily Shaped Bodies

This software enables one to simulate the forces imparted at various locations within an arbitrarily shaped body when subjected to a focused laser beam (i.e., an optical trap). Click here to download the necessary files and then open the readme.txt file for further instructions.

Software Tool for Designing Directionally Compliant Metamaterials

Rotational degrees of freedom

This software enables the design and simulation of directionally compliant metamaterials (DCMs). It also generates animations of their designed degrees of freedom. Click here to download the necessary files (i.e., MaterialDesignGUI.m, MaterialDesignGUI.fig, and images.mat) and put the files in the same folder on your computer. Then open and run the file MaterialDesignGUI.m to launch the tool.
