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…
Field-Driven Design: Product Data Models for Rapid, Collaborative Development
The increased sophistication of today’s products and the introduction of advanced manufacturing creates an unprecedented level of complexity across engineering disciplines. In particular, technologies that improve performance and efficiency, promote part consolidation, and…
Implicit Modeling for Mechanical Design
CAD and CAE software uses a variety of representations of shape to define and document real-world parts. These representations have been developed to accommodate different ways of inputting, interacting with, and manufacturing various…
