CAD won. Engineers lost.
A new approach for computers to actually help solve engineering problems, not just to make better drawings.
Stratasys and nTopology Design Competition: Best 3D Printed Fixture or Tool Design
The Stratasys and nTopology design competition committee is proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Best 3D Printed Fixture or Tool Design Competition.
Meshing in FEA, CFD & Manufacturing
Accurate mesh generation is a critical step of every engineering design workflow that involves FE analyses, CFD simulations, or Additive Manufacturing. Here, we give you practical tips and design considerations for meshing parts…
Yamaha Pairs Topology Optimization with Graded Lattices
Topology optimization and lattice structures can be combined to design parts with even higher added value. In this article, Hiroyuki Nagamoto, R&D Engineer at Yamaha Motor, explains how to use these two advanced…
CodeReps: A Better Way to Communicate Geometry
We are constantly looking for better ways to communicate geometry from nTopology to other software and manufacturing processes as efficiently and cleanly as possible. George Allen proposes a new interoperability methodology based on…
The FDM Fixture Generator is Expanding: Introducing the Masking Module
The second module of the FDM™ Fixture Generator is now available to all. This time the focus is on 3D printed fixtures for masking applications. The tools created from the collaboration between Stratasys…
Fracture Mechanics Analysis of Topology-Optimized Parts
This article shares an example of using nTopology to optimize a part and export it as a CAD body, then using Abaqus to calculate the stress intensity factor of cracks that develop perpendicular…
Topology Optimized Carbon Fiber Polypropylene Parts are “Taking-Off”!
Additive manufacturing (AM) has enabled the production of designs that were thought to be impossible 25 years ago. The impressive fact is that these additive-based technologies continue to advance and improve at a…
