Generative Design with HxGN Emendate

Develop AM ready parts using HxGN Emendate with highly automated & recyclable workflows inside ELISE

The Challenge

The conventional process of topology optimization requires high expertise, knowledge of result interpretation and manual post-processing to achieve the final optimal design. This technology requires a major shift and must be transformed into a more user-oriented product.

  • Requires high effort to create and solve accurate FE models
  • Unnecessary accuracy to determine a rough shape of the semi-optimal design
  • Lack of quality of the optimization and manual re-design with CAD software

Our Approach

Replace the traditional methodology of optimization by much shorter and highly automated process of HxGN Emendate integrated into ELISE.

1

DESIGN & NON DESIGN SPACE

Create or import design and non-design space of a part

2

BOUNDARY CONDITIONS

Define boundary conditions and create the HxGN Emendate model

3

TOPOLOGY OPTIMIZATION

Run the HxGN Emendate topology optimization with automated mesh creation, leading to design variants and smooth designs

4

RECONSTRUCTION

Reconstruct the optimized design to a NURBS geometry

5

AUTOMATE

Create multiple viable designs which are geometrically and mechanically feasible, by specifying simple design criteria

Your Value

Generate detailed and highly complex structures that only additive processes can manufacture. Integrated design rules for additive manufacturing that is functionally applied to the optimization.

  • Emendate makes design for manufacturing smarter by combining speed with high levels of automation to significantly reduce the time required for optimization
  • Intelligent smoothing to automatically create fine and smooth surfaces, ensuring the high quality of the parts
  • Stress constraint-based optimization to generate a bionic design with a homogeneous stress distribution to ensure high part reliability
  • Automate the process of optimization of a part by transferring the knowledge to a different project using ELISE intelligent and parametric algorithms
