nTopology was founded in 2015 and in the six years since we have been growing at a rapid pace. From a team of a handful to over 100 employees, nTopology is now a force to be reckoned with. 

Our flagship software, nTop Platform, was launched in April 2019 with continued bi-weekly updates and releases giving our users access to more and more practical and (sometimes) astonishing features. 

The software sits on three major pillars: unbreakable geometry, field-driven design, and reusable workflows allowing for engineers to design more seamlessly and with greater freedom taking into account all that additive and advanced manufacturing have to offer.

Since the launch of nTop Platform, we have changed its name to match the name of our company so it is now referred to simply as nTopology (or nTop for short). In that time, we’ve also filled our website, YouTube, and subscriber inboxes with an immense amount of content from webinars to nTop Live demos and blogs to case studies and more. Mostly, we have discussed and demonstrated the features and now we know it’s time to illustrate the value of these applications and explain more about the fundamental shift in the approach that we call: Engineering Design.

Enter nTop Week: Engineering Design

Over the course of a week, April 26 – April 29, we are hosting an event where we will reintroduce the first principles of nTopology software and what those principles mean for design, engineering, and manufacturing. 

Kicking off with a keynote from CEO, Brad Rothenberg. Presentations will outline how customers, partners, and academics use nTopology to change how they approach Engineering Design. We will also host live demos and hear from the winners of our EDU Design Competition and, even more, give you the opportunity to ask questions directly to our product, simulation, and application engineering teams.

The week will also feature nTop After Dark which is a live, interactive demo session that includes partners, power users, and employees of nTop for a fun show and tell of experimental and bleeding-edge use of nTopology.
