Design and Analysis’ optimisation software allows us to set up iterative analysis solves to optimise the structure for stiffness, strength and weight. Using topology optimisation, we can erode away a design space to leave the perfect structure to satisfy the design constraints and load cases. This is an ideal partner for use with additive manufacturing techniques (3 D Printing) to fully realise the ideal structure. By using special guidance parameters, the optimisation can be guided toward all common place manufacturing techniques such as extrusions, castings and machining.
