The idea of e-laborate Innovations emerged from the computer graphics group at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) in 2014. For several years, the know-how carriers of the company have researched on novel methods to compute clearance and creepage paths on 3D data and gained an exclusive knowledge in this complex topic. Funded by the EXIST founder scholarship, e-laborate Innovations developed AutoCrear, a state-of-the-art software tool to perform clearance and creepage analyses on 3D CAD data. We also exploit our broad knowledge in the field of 3D geometric processing to find innovative solutions for other complex problems in order to optimize your engineering processes.

Dr.-Ing. Michael Martinek



Michael Martinek studied computer science at the FAU. He received his PhD at the computer graphics group, researching and developing methods to process and analyze 3D Geometry.  A major part of his PhD thesis was the development of novel methods to compute clearance and creepage paths on 3D data.
