The transformation and sizing of a topology optimization outcome into parametric designs is usually highly time-consuming.
Automatic identification of load paths with the help of a voxelized skeleton algorithm and automatic subsequent dimensioning and further processing.
Create a voxel space of the given mesh from the topology optimization result
Reduce the voxel space to its skeleton by reducing the thickness to single voxel throughout the load path
Extract the curves from the skeletonization which can be processed to obtain a clean curve network connected to the non-design spaces
Use the clean curve network to construct pipe curves and transform the pipe curves into a pipe network mesh. This mesh can be converted into a smooth solid body
Universal workflow for automated processing of bar-shaped topology optimization results in robust CAD geometry following the skeletonized load paths of a structure.
