nToplogy presents the nTop 4 for additive manufacturing

nToplogy introducing nTop-4-2319Additive manufacturing has opened up a whole new world of design freedom, making it possible to produce complex parts that offer breakthrough levels of performance. However, this complexity creates bottlenecks throughout the product development process – from design to manufacturing. In the last few years nTo­plo­gy has worked closely with leading industrial enterprises in the aerospace, energy, mobility and healthcare sectors to develop a set of new product capabilities.

These allow them to achieve new innovations and move their AM applications into mainstream production.

Now nToplogy presents nTop 4, another major version of its software that was created specifically to take advantage of the vast design possibilities made possible by additive manufacturing. nTop 4 will make it possible to bring a new generation of products to market even faster.

With the development of AM technology, the difficulty of the problems that designers try to solve also increases. It’s easy to create complex geometry, but it takes a lot more to successfully transform that geometry into highly engineered, production-quality parts. The design freedom that AM allows, coupled with the complex engineering requirements, makes designing these types of parts by hand impractical or even impossible. Without the ability to fully utilize design space, designers are leaving performance on the table in applications where performance matters most.
In traditional CAD, this might be a parametric sketch of a few key design variables – but how do you parameterize geometry where every point in space can be optimized?

nTop 4 introduces a new functionality called Field Optimization, a multi-object, multi-dimensional, closed-loop optimization capability that provides a more efficient and effective way to design complex, high-performance parts. This approach relies on a novel combination of our Implicit Modeling technology, a Field-Driven Design approach, and a generalization of our existing topology optimization framework. This new capability allows designers to focus on entering design intent and part requirements while letting the software automatically determine complex geometric details such as grid layouts, wall thicknesses, rib patterns, and/or other spatially varying parameters.
