WE Empower Engineers To Create Epic STUFF

VISION

We are living in an era for engineers. Today's urgent need for technological advance is unprecedented in human history. Some are motivated by a green planet and some want to revolutionize human mobility. We help engineers to challenge the status quo and develop great products faster then ever before.

MISSION

We believe that engineers should be able to focus on delivering great products. Our mission is to get rid of all unnecessary distractions and limitations within that development process. Therefore, we are committed to providing the leading browser-based engineering environment that allows product design teams to setup, compute, analyze, and share design studies hassle-free. All you need is a browser. We take care of everything else. No installation, no maintenance – just engineering.

Our Journey

Just like a tech startup should, we look back on years full of blood, sweat and tears but also full of joy, passion and success. But if we have to break it down to one thing: We enjoy engineering.

What our partners say

We cultivate a transparent and appreciative culture in which all our partners should participate, regardless of whether they are cooperation partners, suppliers or financial backers.

Dive is a perfect example of why we are excited about the tech ecosystem in Germany. It continues to be great to see the team growing from technical experts with a lot of curiosity to extremely capable operators that take each challenge in stride (and kicking ass along the way).

Andreas Fischer, Founding Partner
First Momentum Ventures

In a collaboration with Dive, I supervise the PhD project of a Dive engineer. The technical depth of the project, and Dive’s strong interest in advanced numerical methods and code correctness enable innovative research that is of both academic and industrial relevance.

Prof. Dr. sc. techn. Ivo Sbalzarini,

OUR PARTNERS

We know that we can never achieve our ambitious goals without strong partners. We believe in open innovation, treating everyone inside and outside the company with respect and we love a good win-win situation.

Together with the chair of scientific computing for systems biology of Prof. Dr. sc. techn. Ivo Sbalzarini new numerical schemes are developed to push meshfree simulation beyond its today’s capabilities. Furthermore, we are validating our gearbox simulation in collaboration with the chair of machine elements of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Berthold Schlecht.

In 2014 our first lines of SPH code were initiated by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Joachim Villwock and Pierre Sabrowski at the laboratory of CAE and simulation. From there it grew from a scientific feasibility study into an industry-ready meshfree software suite that is used in many different fields of application.

https://www.beuth-hochschule.de/

In cooperation with BSH Hausgeräte GmbH and Beuth Hochschule of Applied Sciences Prof. Dr.-Ing. Paul Uwe Thamsen opened the doors to expand the field of industrial SPH application. The experimental expertise of the chair of fluid system dynamics allowed our early stage SPH code to be confronted with and judged by real life engineering challenges.
