Generative Design Tools That Put You In Control
Generative Design is getting a lot of attention — but what is it exactly? Here is why the current Generative Design concepts fall short and how nTop’s alternative approach enables you to unlock its full potential today.
nTop Platform Supports the 3MF File Format with Beam Extension
With the new 3MF beam extension export complex geometry can be transferred from nTop to software such as Magics in a lightweight, efficient manner.
Is this the end of the STL file?
An explanation, a manifesto, call it what you will... Death to STL. A narrative on the history and the future of STL in our words.
Software That Keeps Pace with Engineers
We created nTop platform because advanced manufacturing requires faster and more flexible engineering tools. Our new modeling technology enables a step-change improvement in speed & complexity while an open platform gives you control…
Better performing parts, faster: Introducing nTop Platform
We learned from our customers that the faster they can design a better performing part the more innovative they can be - giving them the competitive edge to win new business.
Advanced Design Tools for Additively Manufactured Medical Devices
nTop platform is a powerful tool in a medical device designer’s toolbox. From complex geometry creation, repeatable workflows, and data management – nTop can be utilized as a key competitive advantage for product…
Topology Optimization in a World of Fields and Implicit Geometry
Manual reconstruction of geometry after topology optimization is generally viewed as a major impediment, and this was the challenge first tackled in nTop Platform software. The resulting smooth geometry is generated in seconds…
How implicits succeed where B-reps fail
As previously described, the B-rep modeling used by most precise and mesh-based CAD and graphics systems works well for low complexity parts and most traditional manufacturing processes. For any experienced CAD user, the…
Enabling design for additive manufacturing through nTopology’s block system
nTopology Platform’s explicit system of nested objects exposes users to all process parameters and allows each one to be recombined, reused, and shared extensively. Knowledge can easily be retained and transferred from one…
nTopology Platform for Additive Manufacturing
nTop Platform is helping companies realize products with Additive Manufacturing by integrating the Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) workflow and removing inherent barriers to iterative redesign necessary to create breakthrough new products.
Understanding the basics of B-reps and Implicits
Recently we introduced the concept of geometric modeling using an implicit representation, which permits robust operations and the ability to work with many sources of input data. Our flagship product, nTop Platform, uses…
