Powerful 3D Design tools bolstered by topology optimization
The benefits of generative design range from lighter components to minimal downstream manufacturing material waste. Also, highly customized complex shapes can result, perfect for casting or today’s high-resolution additive manufacturing processes. With generative design, you can create the optimum design between weight and strength, tailored for desired manufacturing processes.
Efficient topology optimization for CAD parts
Based on your parameters- a specific component material, a design space (or envelope), and permissible loads and constraints—the software will compute a reduced-mass geometric solution that maintains structural integrity. You can even run multiple weight targets, load cases and constraint scenarios simultaneously.
Advanced parts ready for 3D printing
The parts resulting from the generative iteration are ready for manufacturing via additive processes. Today’s high-resolution 3D printers can handle the complex shapes, shortening your new product time-to-market or speeding production of replacement parts.
Evolve the design using convergent technology
The optimized components coming out of generative design can be further modified with Convergent Modeling and synchronous technology in Solid Edge. The meshed results are seamlessly integrated into the normal model editing process, allowing you to get the final design needed for the task at hand. No more waiting for tedious, inaccurate conversions from triangular mesh to b-rep.
