3D Topology Optimization for adaptive manufacturing

Top3d for adaptive manufacturing

 

 

 

With a design problem like the figure below, our topology optimization problem is to minimize structure compliant (or maximize structure stiffness).
beam_domain

 

Using our efficient 3D topology optimization program – Top3d, the topology optimized structure is shown below

beam_top3d

Reconstruct Top3d results to Standard Tessellation Language (STL) for 3D printing

 

beam_stl

The 3D printing results are shown below
