Design / Modeling / Topology optimization
Traditional manufacturing approaches are often limited in their ability to produce topologically optimised designs. Such designs often feature complex shapes, that are usually impossible or cost-prohibitive to produce using machining or injection moulding.
3D printing, on the other hand, is capable of producing intricate shapes without the added cost for complexity. This makes additive manufacturing the best technology to make the most of topologically optimised designs.
- Prediction of mechanical strength (deformations, fracture risks, ...)
- Thermal analyzes (distribution and evolution of the temperature)
- Evaluation of mechanical performance of finished products
