拓扑优化是一种面向设计师、工程师和分析师的数字设计技术,在设计过程初期嵌入将有助于确定最佳设计方案。拓扑优化有助于更快地创建设计概念,并通过消除试错来减少迭代。

Topology Optimization Benefits

一次成功

在设计过程初期创建最佳设计,可大幅降低与设计失败相关的成本。

超越性能目标

通过设计能够承受真实世界外部载荷条件的部件和装配体,最大化性能表现。这些设计通常更坚固、更轻盈,并且使用的材料更少。

具有可制造性的设计

给定优化目标,设置针对传统制造和先进制造的约束条件,找到最佳的材料分布方式。

Topology Optimization for Any Manufacturing Method

Altair’s industry leading topology optimization tools include shape optimization that focuses on multiple manufacturing processes. These topology optimization tools are built to consider and adhere to the rules and specs of multiple different manufacturing methods. Some of these rules include: symmetry patterns, draw direction, cavity avoidance, overhand angles, and more.

Real-World Applications of Generative Design

Using Topology Optimization to Create Manufacturable Product Designs Generative design is one of the hottest buzzwords in the product development world. You've seen the organic structures and promises of material reduction and cost savings, but how and when do you apply these principals to your design process, and how to you ensure that those designs can actually be manufactured? Find out how manufacturers like American Axle are leveraging generative design to improve real-world, in-service products using both traditional and advanced manufacturing processes.
