Topology Reconstruction

Automatically generate lightweight designs with automated workflows

The Challenge

The major challenge to the potential of Generative Design with topology optimization is the manual interpretation and evaluation of the results. Usually, the optimization outcome has to be redesigned in a CAD environment to achieve the final part.

  • Different series of designs generated from topology optimization each necessitate manual processes
  • Subjective interpretation and further processing of the optimization results lowers the performance of the final part
  • Multiple software tools and processes are required to generate a solid geometry of the final design

Our Approach

Streamline the connection of the powerful Generative Design, topology optimization, design-of-experiments and optimization processes in one workflow that generates, optimizes and evaluates solutions to be exported as robust solid geometries.

1

TOPOLOGY OPTIMIZATION

Setup and perform the topology optimization of a part for the given loading conditions

2

QUAD REMESHING

Convert the low-quality optimization mesh into a high-quality quad mesh

3

MESH TO SOLID

Convert the quad mesh into a smooth solid body following the shape of the mesh

4

FINAL PART

Perform an intersection of the solid body with the design spaces, followed by the union with the non-design spaces of the initial geometry to obtain the final part. This ensures the body limits and the functional regions are not disturbed

Your Value

Use Generative Design efficiently and optimize your part in the fastest and most convenient way.

  • Automatically generate lightweight designs with the help of intelligent algorithms, allowing time for innovation
  • Re-transition the optimization outcome into a high-quality mesh, followed by the solid geometry, thereby reducing the manual redesign tasks
  • Explore different optimal solutions of the product to save cost, time and improve the performance
